Posted: Feb 5, 2013

On New Year's Day (2013) I decided to go to my farm and try to get a shot at some hogs we had coming in. I was surprised by a very nice eight point whitetail at about 5:30 PM. I was shooting my Marlin Outfitter loaded with 265 grain LEVERevolution .444 ammo. One shot anchored this deer at 92 yards. This was very special due to the fact that my father was born and raised on this farm and this was the first deer I had ever harvested there.

I thank Hornady and Marlin for providing me with the quality equipment I used to harvest this sentimental wall hanger.
