Hello all.
On Queens Birthday weekend 2018 I got my first ever stag.
I've taken a couple of spikers before, red and fallow, and a number of red and fallow Hinds and yearlings. Mainly hunt for meat, got a family to feed.
He's only a 9 pointer, however some of the locals said that he's the best they've seen in a few years out of that block.
Shot with my Zastava Mauser .270 using 130gr Norma softpoints at about 260m.
If you look on my forehead above the bridge of my nose, you'll see a minor case of Weatherby brow...
I was lying downhill with the ultralight Harris all extended to level up the rifle. Put my brow a little closer to the scope...
We saw two, one a lot smaller head and this one. The other one had the brow tines and some points on top, but at 240m, couldn't tell how many points it was.
The young fellow that I was hunting with (who took the pics) had one of those scopes with the multiple reticles, in the heat of the moment he overestimated the drop and used the second bar on the reticle, put his shot clean over the animals back. I dropped mine...

Looks like a good eating young stag.
