Default Finally got me a good Axis!

I know it's not with a bow but we got on a new lease this year and can't bow hunt this year, it's a negotiating point next year though. Small hill country low fence place. We were up there cleaning up some MLD doe tags. With the full moon, movement was slow in the mornings. Decided I would corn a road where I've been seeing some axis doe lately and come back middle of the day and see if I could catch one on his feet mid day. Buddy and I snuck in there about noon and there he was all by his lonesome. Little stalk to get into a shooting window, he busted us with about 5 feet to go. He was about to run off, got on the bipod and crushed him through the only window I had through a fork in a tree between him and I. Strangest bullet hit Ive ever heard, he went about 30 yards and that was all she wrote. The new 30-06 xbolt has been a tack driver, thanks for that half price deal gander Mtn . Main beams were 35", 24" wide, he SCI scored 157". Got to love it when a plan comes together.

Nice Job congrats. 30:06 is a heck of a good round. It will bust a hole in a big animal. I think we forget how good an 06 round really is....
