Idaho deer success photo.

Not the biggest buck but public land do it yourself hunt in Idaho.
Rained all day, spotted this deer up in a canyon. Got as close as I could. Hit him with the lazer 387 yards. Wind and rain were straight in my face. Set the 350 crosshairs in my Leupold Boone and Crocket Reticle right on top of his back.
At the shot he did a forward flip and rolled about 40 yards down the hill. Shot was dead center right through the back of the shoulder.
I was surprised to see no exit from the 168 Barnes Triple shock in my 300 win mag.
It sure was instant death to that deer though.

Congrats on a nice buck and a good hunt! Thats probably the first deer on the planet to stop 168 TSX fired from the 300mag.

Re: Idaho deer success photo.

Could you post a picture of the recovered bullet? Also could you weigh it and tell me the retained weight?

I did not dig out the bullet. I think it held together well though because of the lack of blood shot meat.
Very small entrance wound and still can't believe the bullet did not exit but that is the case.

Re: Idaho deer success photo.

Yes I really love the B&C. Very nice scope.
Forgot to mention that patch of green trees just above the deers head in the background is where I took the shot from.
