Strange things happen!!

My first long range kill at 600 yards with my 7mm RUM was a huge surprise! And of course the berger 180 vld dropped it in its tracks. When I went to recover my deer, to my surprise, there was 2 deer laying on the ground. After skinning deer out I found a huge wound channel in first deer and just a small tiny fragment of the expanded bullet had struck second deer right in top of heart. Thanks berger for filling my freezer!! And for all that might ask yes I had 2 tags.

That takes doubling-down to a new level! Congrats on the kills.

Now that is "whacking and stacking" for sure. The 7mm Berger 180's are having a great season for several members here. We took a nice bull with one at 600 yards a while back as well.

Congrats! and thanks for the report!

Question for you hunters. If the OP did not have 2 tags, could he have gotten in trouble from the Fish and Game dep.?

Yes - the nut behind the bolt is responsible for all results.

Yes. It depends on the jurisdiction though but in some cases an animal accidentally killed immediately reported to the Rangers/Warden you can actually legally take it by them issuing you a special tag or receipt for a small fee.

"Know your state's game laws", is more than just a PSA.
