Re: Deer are tough creatures..

It seems to me that the smaller super fast rounds put the deer down quicker. I have used or witnessed the use of alot of different carteriges used from 22 r/f to 416 rem on white tails in Texas. just my 2cents

longbow, crossbow, shotgun,. muzzeloader or 30-06........plan on tracking the deer for a few yards after a perfect shot. 338 win mag, 50 BMG, 340 Weatherby, then it may drop him more times than he runs, but then again maybe not. Agreed, they are tough animals.

Re: Deer are tough creatures..

Shot a 175 lb 6 Point Buck with 300 Winchester Magnum at 120 yds, with 165 Gr Nosler Ballistic Tip. He was quartering toward me and the bullet went through right shoulder and exited out of the rib cage, just behind the left shoulder. Knew I had a dead deer shot at sound of rifle, but he ran about 20 yds. I say he just took a deep breath and it took that long to exhale.
