My friend and I went out on the last day of Gun Season which was a Saturday, December 11, 2010. It had snowed the day before and I had a good feeling about this mornings hunt. At 6:40AM, I heard a noise behind me and a small buck was coming down the hill. Shortly afterwards, I saw a doe coming and then behind her a Huge Buck! He came down and stopped behind a tree about 80 yards away. Then he turned and walked about 20 yards and turned sideways quartering away. I pulled up my Remington 870 and sent an SST 300 grain slug on the way. Double lung shot and he only ran 30 yards. This was a 100 yard shot. I cannot say enough about the SST slugs. I get unbelievable groups and never had a misfire. I got down about 45 minutes later and went to recover my buck. He was a huge Ten Point buck with over a 17 inch spread with good mass. He green scored 137+ and was 5-1/2 years old. We have been managing this property under QDM for several years and it is paying off big time. I will ONLY shoot SST Slugs and have been for years. Thank you Hornady for making them!
