Gun:         .50 Encore
Scope:      4X Zeiss
Bullet:      300 Grain .452 XTP Magnum 
Powder:    120 grains of Black MZ
Distance:   120 yards. 
Attitude:    Broadside

Was in a stand looking down a long  trail when this buck came out at about 120 yards distance and stopped.  The bullet ruined the shoulder meat:  The exit was nearly 2" in diameter.   i hate that. 

The buck is very fat.

Excellent job Floyd! Looks like hog removal is starting to pay off.

Sometimes i believe there are more hogs there than ever before.   Tuesday evening they were all over the place-18 in one gaggle.
