Well its been a tough year with very little deer sightings. Today it was really foggy in the morning . I climbed in the stand and the fog began to lift sooner than I thought. The stand I am in is high on a ridge over looking a small river about 150 yards away and down hill. There is a trail (just wide enough for a truck) then the river. About an hour after my sit started I saw two small does walking down the trail below me. Then about an hour later the two (pretty sure the same two) came running down the ridge beside me and up mine straight to me . They made their way under my stand and I could see one was a button buck. They milled around in front of me for a long time then they bedded down about 20 yards in front of me. I looked at them for an hour. It was about 11:00 a.m. I was starting to think about lunch and how I could get down from my stand without making them run (no way) . Then out of the blue a large doe being chased by a five pointer came barreling down the same ridge and stopped in the bottom. Then the doe took off and up my ridge about 60 yards below me. I had the .270 up and ready ,she passed an opening then he did, and I stopped him with a mouth grunt. I shot and he made about 5 steps and went down. He is a big body deer with a small rack. I was reall happy with they way my .270 performed. It was my first deer with it. Im very happy to get the meat. I took one crappy cell phone pic ,not worth posting. It was 70 today so I had to get the meat on ice quick. Im doing a euro mount just for the heck of it.

This is actually the exit wound side. I was surprised how much damage the .270 did.

Awesome, congrats....but I'd have shot the five pointer AND the button buck.

I can't resist a button buck~!
