Well Done, DUH.

That is one big "deer"... So sambar are almost elk sized huh?

Here in Colorado we hunt elk most every year and I am always amazed
at the size of a downed elk.

4x,

They certainly have some size about them, but not as big as elk. They have alot shorter legs but are built like a fat 44 galon drum ! They certainly know how to take the lead in well placed spots.

Glad you liked the pics.

You bet! If I'm hearing you right, sambar are a lot like elk... that they are very hard to knock down. From 270 win through 300 mag, the ones I have killed didn't even flinch. All with heart lung shots. Even though none of them went 40 yards after the shot, I would have to say that at the point of the shot they were pretty unimpressed with my best efforts.

Interesting find last night whilst the butchering session took place.

We found an old projectile in the knee joint of his rear rhs leg. His knee was a mass of swollen bone. The deer was not walking with a limp at all so I'd same the injury was some time ago.

The projo is about 7mm wide across the base. It has completely shed its lead core and is just copper base plus a little bent over jacket.

What cal is this pill likely to be .. ? 7MM ?? Ideas.

Now I can see why he was malformed on his left antler.

Cheers

DUH
