170" buck killed on the ground @ 25 yds

Definitely one of the best hunts of my life, including being very surprised how big this buck was. I knew he would be my personal best as I started the sneak, but I had no idea he was quite as big as he was. I was using a .22-250 that I had bought for the kids and my wife that year, with 60 grain Nosler Partitions. I didn't plan to get this close to this buck, nor did I know how truly big he was, but it was one of those rare times when it all works out in the hunters favor.

Getting this hunt edited and put up has been a looong time in the making, and a lot of work...

Hope you enjoy!
