Talking My first Whitetail

I went home to Nebraska and met up with a couple buddies of mine who served in the military with me and got out. We have been making it an annual trip now and plan to do so every year. Last year they both shot their first Muies and this year I shot my first Whitetail that's worth mentioning. I normally hunt Mulies and have a few big ones on the wall. But no whitetails. So this year I said I would take a big whitetail if I see one. We had 4 tags to fill and on the third day I came across this guy. I think that the fact the rut was heavy and he was chasing two other bucks off, is the only reason I got a shot. It was a 200 yd + shot. The 300 RUM did its job in 1 shot, as usual. It was a 5x5 almost perfectly symmetrical, but I love it none the less. I can't remember the width, but it was nice and his G2's were high at 11 1'2 '' long. I can't wait to get it scored, and get it back and on my wall.

Thanks guys. I was hunting in the southwest part of Nebraska. I am from Beaver City which is southwest of Kearney, if you know where that is,and I was hunting land outside of there. There is actually a split between Republican and Frenchman territories right by town and both are excellent for Mule deer and Whitetails. I sure hope it gets atleast 160. I would be tickled pink. I am anyway, but that would be great.

FNF,

Heck of a whitetail. I would think it would go 160, but hard to say without hands-on inspection Congrats!

My brother moved out to Lincoln, and got a decent WT up by Elgin this past fall. It wasn't nearly that big though...
