Nice buck. Shoot them in the shoulder with that 257 they will DRIT. I shoot a 25-06 myself for deer. Shoulder shots DRIT 99.9% of the time. There is just something about any 25 cal from 250 Savage up and DRIT shots on deer.

My fam owns a high game deer ranch and I have seen hundreds of deer killed out there. All the deer I cull off of it are either shot in the head (doe) or shot in the C3-C5 vertibrae. This obviously is a DRT shot. Of all the hunters that pay, the high shoulder shot is what I like them to make because it flat puts them down(if they are not comfortable with a neck shot). I have seen anywhere from 223 up to 300 Weatherby's on a high shoulder shot and have NEVER seen a deer take a step after being hit there. I know people will argue that it ruins meat. Lets talk about that for a second. If someone is paying 10,000 plus for a hunt, its not the meat they are after. Its the rack. If they get pissy about loosing 4 ounces of meat then I will give them a doe for free! Now if its a deer they are not getting mounted, then I will encourage a neck shot and no meat is lost at all.

Now this is all my opinion and by no means am I saying
that it is the way it has to be done. This is just what I have seen and believe it to be true.
