Default Texas Ram Slam

Completed my Texas Slam and Bighorn Slam this past Saturday (9/6/08) atop the RockyTop Ranch. This nice Corsican finally gave me a quartering away shot at about 25 yards after a 1/2 day of spot and stalk. Drew back the Diamond Victory bow loaded with a 100-grain ATOM broadhead, perfect heart shot and he piled up about 10 yards away....

Congrats on the completion! He'll look good with your other rams. I'll be there in DEC looking to spot and stalk a corsican.

Adios!

Yes, I like the ATOM's. They make an awesome entry and exit hole. Recommend getting the Titanium version, especially if hunting over rocky terrain.
