Re: 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner

It took us a while to find him. I was getting really concerned, until Scotty found him. When I walked up to the elk, I think I squealed like a little girl! I'm sure, I hugged the fellas enough times to get out of the happy hunter zone, and into the starting to get creepy zone!
Even though I was up at about 4:45am that morning, I couldn't get to sleep about midnight!

I shot a doe tonight at 100-120 yards with 160 accubonds, I thought I missed but I found patches of hair where I shot her. I called my buddy and we started to track it. We immediately found pink chunks of blood I knew it was a good hit in the lungs. She ran and ran leaving very little blood and we finally found her. Perfect shot and I flipped her over and there was a baseball size exit wound and a chunk of her lung was clogging up the hole and hindered a major blood trail. Deer has a major will to live. I found it unbelievable that a massive hole like that and how far she ran (atleast 75yds) it felt like longer because of the thick cover. Thank the good lord I found her. Have y'all had a perfect shot on an animal before and very little blood before?

Heck, I've had that happen on a deer hit with a 300 win through the lungs at 50 yards with clockwork hanging out the side after the hit(300 win with 165's at 3300 fps). Dang white tail doe went 150 yards with no lungs at all a few years back. She wasn't even moving 'till I shot either.

Wow, that's crazy. They definitely have the will to live.

I shot this buck about 3 weeks ago. 185 yds, Nosler partition. Buck dropped on the spot to a high shoulder shot. Complete penetration of course. 1" entrance, massive internal damage (shoulder & spine shattered) and a small exit. The other 2 bucks were taken by my buddies the same weekend. It has taken me a while to figure out how to post pics. 7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner-a10-2012-deer.jpg7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner-a9-2012-deer.jpg7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner-a11-2012-deer.jpg7mm STW Brotherhood - For those who shoot the 7mm Shooting Times Westerner-a12-2012-deer.jpg

Are you doing a shoulder mount?

No, I have been fortunate to have a few better ones already mounted.
