I go through stages on what rifle & caliber to use for deer here in Middle Georgia.  The last two years I've been using my Mark V stainless steel 7mm Weatherby Mag with 139 grs, and it's bang flop on deer here.  Recoil is manageable, and mine is on the light side.  I'd say go for it.  The other best thing you can do, is get a 270 Weatherby. :)

BB, outstanding trophies, and I'm glad Jas was able to connect twice.  Congrats to both of ya! That Nyala is a stud, and will make a beautiful full mount.

BB, while we were there we went to a preserve, and rode on the back of Eles, and they are the most destructive animals on this earth.  They will break a tree in half, just to eat a few leaves from a particular branch.  I couldn't believe it.

Rob, Africa is not out reach as I used to think, and anyone can take that trip.  I was fortunate enough to shoot 7 animals, and those 7 were cheaper than the price of an elk hunt out West.  Were it gets expensive is on the taxidermy, and depending from where you are flying the air faire ($5000. round trip for my wife & me).  My wife wants to go back soon.  ;D

Here in GA, is open season on coyotes year round.  Not so much on bobcats, their season starts in Dec.  However, if we see a coyote, we shoot at them, regardless of what we are hunting.  I've killed  coyotes early in the day, and had deer show up to the feeder an hour or so later.  I've also killed deer early in the day, and moved it, and had more deer showed up later on.  So, if I score early I stayed in the stand.  ;D ;D 

That is a great looking stock!

All good here in Middle Georgia.  Michael came in as a strong Cat I, with winds 75+ MPH, and dumped a lot of water on us.  Our home didn't suffer any damage, and we never lost power.  Some counties around us are not so lucky, there were a lot tornado activity in the area, and that is what caused most of the damages. 

DW, that is some funny sh*t, and not far from the truth.  LMAO!!!!!

It seems like I'll be the WX man this week.  Michael has GA in his cross hair, and we are looking at rain 65+MPH winds  on Thu.  I thought I ran from all the hurricanes, but I guess I didn't go inland enough.  ;D ;D
