That looks familiar.. The last WT I shot with my Lapua and a 300smk did the same thing. Actually sucked the intestines right out the other side plugging the hole. I was confused at the fact there was no blood trail in the snow till I seen the exit was plugged. But then she only took a few stepps.

Thanks for posting the pics.

Jeff

Congratulations to Sgt May and I am glad when the vets get back to normal, everyday type activities.

Are those Coues deer?

They are not all furred up and gray like the wintertime deer here, so I was not sure they were whitetails.
