This nice 8 point was caught slipping around Saturday evening at 4:45 pm. I shot him at 230 yards with the old trusted Browning 7mag the gun cracked and the deer fell and jumped back up and I shot him again and he fell and got back up. The long cut on his front shoulder he was quatering away on the first shot and I hit him with a Federal Premium 150 grain BTSP and it glanced off of his shoulder blade and ripped his shoulder. The second shot took both front legs out and he ran off on his back legs tracked him about 40 yards and found him hiding in a swampy bottom he would put his whole head under the water so I raised the gun and waited either for him to drown or raise his head and when he did I shot him in the neck. No blood or hair was found from either of the first 2 shots I was just confident that I had placed them where they needed to go. I have killed numerous deer with this gun and have never shot one high in the shoulder near the back bone like that and had them get back up. Anyways looking forward to the next hunt in Hancock County Mississippi. 15 3/4" inside spread 162 lbs.

Nice deer. That rack that you have has a seperate winch to get the deer on the rack or do you use the front winch?

Deer Loader
You use the front winch. The rack actually lays down around the back basket and fits out of the way when you need it you pull 2 pins and stand it up right like I have it in the picture. I had a 2003 model bike that I lost in the storm and I called Monroe to order a new deer loader and the guy told me that he stopped making them he was not selling enough I got the one off of my old bike and installed it on my 2005.
