My longest Coues buck!

Arizona Coues deer. 571 yards. .257 Wby "El Chupacabra". 115 Berger on top of H1000 ran to 3230 FPS. Berger worked AWESOME! No exit, but inside was jello.
Got this buck on the first shot. He ran a total of 13 yards and stood hunched up by a tree. I shot two more times trying to plant him. He ended up laying down and dying in his bed!
Here is the shot:


Here is the buck!

Congrats! Nicely done. Surprised the berger didn't exit. Any thoughts on why it didn't?

Stu.

Re: My longest Coues buck!

Well, from my understanding, the Bergers are designed to not exit. Basically, this one did like it is "supposed to". It went in, right between two ribs and turned the insides, out! There was shrapnel everywhere, and the buck only went 13 yards and laid down and died. He didn't drip a drop of blood from where I shot him to where he died, it was all on the insides.

Re: My longest Coues buck!

Very nice! Nice buck and shooting that is. I am also a big coues fan. I bowhunt them anually. I also have 8 bonus points for deer so I should be rifle hunting soon. Holding out for a late hunt.

Congrats!

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: My longest Coues buck!

What unit do you usually hunt for coues? This buck came from 36b.
