    CONGRADULATIONS!!!!!!
    Looks like a nice one!

    Are they in the rut yet where you are at.
    My guess is no,or just begining judging by all the fat on that bucks a$$... um I mean hind quarters.
    do you guys peel the hide down or do you use skinning knives?

    its nice to see a garage thats not neet and orderly. ( mine has one, man width path front to back due to all the projects I am working on right now) :eek: my wife peaked in there the other day and said "oh my gosh"
    to which I responded yep we need a bigger garage, then she said nooooooo you need to clean!! :mad:

    Congratulations on a successful hunt!

    The .280 is one of the best, although underappreciated, rounds out there, imho.
