    This is my first big buck! I shot him around silver creek mississippi. He was comeing through a cut over and toward a thicket, I was sitting in a tripod stand overlooking a small foodplot about 5:20 pm. he crossed at no later than 5:25. I droped him @ 80 yards with a 165 grain 30.06 core lok from my BLR to the spine. Here are pictures.

    do all southerners count all the points on the head. Up here we count one side. Here that would be a 5 point. Just curious...

    anyway, congrats! Nice animal!

    Up here in the Northeast we put a pipe over the spike horns, and drive it down, to make it 3" legal.

    No, that's just the joke we say to people who shoot a small spike-horn.
