    It was cold! Below zero in Southwest Montana last week of season. I usually dress period, but chickened-out on this particular morning. Load: 90 grains 3f, .530 ball. pillow ticking patch. shot: 40-50 yards. A little too far back but the deer walked away about 10 yards and piled up.

    That's just grand. Did the carcass start to freeze?

    That gives you a feeling you can't get with anything modern. Congratulations.

    Shot looks pretty good to me! Congratulations...looks like an older buck. If you only showed the rack, I'd say it was a whitetail! The body and face are all muley, but definitely not a standard muley rack. Very nice! :thumb:
