Yeah, my first deer as a pensioner! Got a few to my credit now - maybe 15 or so. Good eating right there, a fallow buck at 217 yards with my .270 on it's first shot at an animal. A bit of a rushed shot to be fair and certainly not my best but it looks dead to me.

Yeah don't tell the farmer!!! Clown

It was on a narrow ridge with a very steep drop away both sides. Luckily I could get the ute right up to it and just had to load it on the back. Very lucky as it would have broken me Big smile
