Fallow buck for 2015 rut

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Reasonable fallow buck for this area taken during the 2015 rut. It was quite late in the evening before the bucks started to croak. Shot was taken from 120m with the 30-06 using Norma 180grn ammunition.  As you would expect from a solid shoulder shot the buck went down immediately and was within a few meters.
