Thank you gents!  Let me try and answer everyone's questions.

- Used 7mm Weatherby 139 grs PT-EX ammo
- Camo is KUIU, Verde 2.0.  Great stuff by the way, a bit pricy, but great stuff overall
- I was using a home made box stand, about 8 ft above ground, overlooking a cotton field.  I was on the edge of the woods, with a oak tree behind me, and several oak trees to my right where we have the feeder 
- Shot deer behind the elbow, heart lung shot.  I think the deer was dead and didn't know it.  LOL!!!!
- I couldn't take a trophy foto in the field because I was alone, and no one to take the picture for me.  I actually got that deer on the back of my truck by myself.  LOL!!!!  Had to use a couple of rachet straps to get him off the ground.  it was a b*tch to pull him though.  My friend who lives about 8 miles away was on his way to help me when a deer hit him.  That's right, a deer ran into his truck and hit the truck by the driver's door, and then spun around and hit the rest of the truck creating a nice dent on the rear wheel fender.  I guess it could have been worst.  LOL!!!!

I upladed a picture of the buck when he was next to my stand.  Took it with my phone, so it's not the greatest quality.  I don't know why the picture is sideways.  Not like that in my file.

Thank you gents.  I like all the Weatherby calibers/rifles I own.  This 7mm Wby I own is a stainless model with the topper ware stock, and fluted stainless barrel.  A real pleasure to take to the field, and a great shooter.     I like to rotate what I hunt with, so I go through stages and try to kill something with every Weatherby rifle I own.  I need a trip out west so I can try out my 6.5-300  ;D ;D

Thank you gents!  I know it, my rifles likes those 139s, too bad they are no longer made. 

I hunt in GA, used to be station at Robins AFB, and work there as a civilian now. :)
