This buck had wandered from adjacent wooded property across a large field to our wooded property and had lingered too long. He was attempting to cross back during daylight...bad idea. Although I was facing a heavy cross wind of 20+mph gusts, I landed 3 shots, all at distances well over 200 yds in my rangefinder, on a moving target. The first shot slowed him by biting a plug out of his right foreleg, the second caught him up high on his neck, (nearly through his head), then he finally stood still, broad-side, shaking his head back and forth, for the last shot through his lungs @ 242 yds. Luck had nothing to do with scoring 3 hits. That's what confidence in your equipment can accomplish! Thanks Hornady!!!
