Congrats on a great deer. And way to put the sneak on him.
Thanks Jeff, looks like my turn to keep the taxidermist in business this year. Bullet did a great job of breaking the shoulder blade, destroying the internals and coming to rest on the outside of the far shoulder(no bone on off side) the real nice thing was there was almost zero blood shot! All the meat was edible. Penetration was probably about 16 inches, he was a very fat buck with 1/2 inch of fat over his frontal area and over an inch on the hind quarters. Now if I can just do this well with my late season limited quota elk tag. I have to wait until Nov 1st though.
