I took this deer at about 125 yards in Kansas in 2008. I was hunting in the east central part of the state on public land. This buck netted a little over 175 BC and grossed right at 190 BC. The buck has a ten point frame and had it not broken off its left brow tine it could have netted in the low to mid 180's. Really nice buck.
I have been very pleased with Thompson's Encore Pro Hunter. Its fitted with a Burris 4.5x14 scope and is very accurate. I have also had a muzzle break installed to tame the recoil. Works well.
