This is my first digital hunt photo so hoping it is easy to see.

I located this 5 X 5 with my binoculars. White River breaks of western South Dakota. This is rough country just east of Badlands National Park.

The buck was dozing on a south east facing hillside. After a long J-shaped stalk I managed to get within approx. 125 yards. I cranked up the scope to 6X and settled into a sitting position. One 150 gr core-lockt through the neck did the job. The bullet tore through neck vertebrae and exited ruining the cape for mounting.

Scope is a Simmons 2X to 7X Pro Hunter model from cheaper than dirt. I bought this Glenfield 30-30 carbine in 1978 and have had much good luck with it. Not for sale.

PS I took my orange cap off for the photo.

I am looking forward to seeing the picture Jack. That is some beautiful and rugged country. I used to work for Badlands NP in the '90s and really miss that country sometimes.

I am not sure what the problem is Elkhunter. I can't see it from the link Jack posted, but I can see the image under my post. Apparently no one else can.
