On her third journey on the open hill for our chital/axis deer the Alexander Henry 500BPE express rifle finally takes a large axis stag. On her first journey way back in April last year she took an axis doe at 180 or so yards, and now on her third trip to the beautiful island of Lanai I managed to take an old fat stag at about the same distance. Spooked a small herd of 10-12 deer on a ridge. I didn't have a great deal of time so I had to make a quick shot off my monopod/shooting stick. I waited and one of the larger males in the group stopped for a moment too take a look back at us and I was able to make the shot.



He was a good old stag with one malformed antler. Fun to stalk deer with a 140 year old open sighted double smile

Congratulations on a great hunt. What a majestic animal taken with a lovely old rifle made by one of the truly great Scottish makers. That is my kind of hunt!

A bit off subject but what brand is the leather slip on recoil pad? How much LOP does it add?

Its from Cabelas and you can get them in different sizes: http://www.cabelas.com/product/Kick-Killer-Slip-On-Butt-Pad-with-VELCRO-brand-fastener/734596.uts

It gives just a little under 1" of length.

I just saw an almost exact copy of this gun sold in Canada. It was a conversion done by Henry in the same caliber. At auction it went for CAND2400. I would have purchased it except I had my eye on other items coming up later in the auction.

WOW! That's an extremely low price for a comparable gun. I mean, AN EXTREMELY LOW PRICE!!

If it truly was comparable to this DR, the buyer got a fantastic deal.

What do you mean by a conversion? From what to what?

Never mind I see that was from last Nov.

And I just saw that it was a CONVERSION done by Alex Henry....I thought the rifle WAS an Alexander Henry.

Maybe it wasn't such a fantastic deal after all...........
