First CVA Accura Harvest ZOnkRG0t

Finally got lucky!  This guy was tending a doe.  7 Point, 16" wide, and rather tall.

Hit him a tad high at 109 yards.  He left a meager blood trade and then made into some THICK brambles, covering about 100 yards.  Tough to find!

Marty,

70 weighed grains of BH209, Harvester green smooth sabot, and Hornady 265 gr FTX bullet (#4305).  That is an accurate load for me.  Holds an inch at 100 yds.   Bullet passed clean thru without striking any bone. 

On the recovery.  To be honest, I had a youngster with 17-year old eyes help out after the first 75 yards.  I found plenty of blood drops and more than a few larger sprays, but he was finding lots of them these old eyes missed.  Didn't hurt to have him help drag it either!
