270 Remington 361 yards

It was a very cool and beautiful morning on the Sabine wma over looking a pipeline between two pine plant ion stands. Around seven thirty several does we're on top a hill eating when they all looked up and towards the north side of the pipeline where there is a creek running across and that's where I first seen my buck.

He managed to walk about twenty yards by the time I got my sights on him, he steeped one more time going broadside I ranged him with my rangefinder it said 361 yards so I held my proper aim and point the 130 grain soft point behind his ear dropping him in his tracks.

He has a 17 inch spread and is a eight point and one side is palmetted.

Why take a head shot at that distance? I am not bashing you, just wondering why take a shot with a 1-2 inch margin of error at that distance? Obviously, you made the shot so you know your gun. I just can't figure out why anyone would want to take that shot, especially at that distance.
Great buck, congrats.

I definitely don't want you shooting at me, that's very impressive. I remember one time aiming at a doe when I was younger I had the crosshairs right behind her shoulder, squeezed the trigger and she dropped. Got down there and I hit her in the white patch of hair on her throat lol. Pure D Luck.
