Ruger #1 45-70 NY Buck

Hornady 325 gr FTX behind 51gr of IMR4198. Not a monster, but big enough for me.

Nice buck.I would save that rack and put it on one of those antler mounting kits.I would put it in my living room to be able to think back to that hunt.I always do that now but there was a time when I didn't.I was young and felt it was not important.Boy was I wrong the memories of the hunts are the real trophies and any rack saved or picture is worth it for the memories down the line.I save pictures of the does I shoot now.

Thanks everyone. I am now looking for a No 1 in 7x57. My other favorite caliber.
