well got a new handi rifle in the 45-70 last year just to mess with a little and was waiting patiently to try it out on something this season since i been shooting the new hornady loads and lever-evolution scope combo. couldn't believe the accuracy. well this big boy was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, i guess he was moving cause of the front comming through sunday evening. 250 lbs 11 point, 18 and half inch inside with 5 3/4" bases i have never seen one like it before and never knew he was there either got camera out there since august too! killed outside franklinton, la in washington parish. all i had was neck shot bout 110 yards out from him standing halfway out in my shooting lane..... pulled it just a hair- hehehe i love this sport and live for those moments!
