    Nice deer. Good to know I'm not the only one that believes a dead animal won't run far from where it fell during the night.

    Very very nice whitetail Mike!!

    Looks to be way bigger than the ones I see over here in my area.
    Glad to hear another great tail of the 25-06! Love mine, I've had two over the years, eventually shot out the first one using it on prarie dogs on windy days.

    Yeah the 25-06 doesn't seem to get the credit that it should. I love this thing. I think I'm gonna shoot a cow elk with it this year I have always wanted to see how it would do on one..

    I wouldn't hesitate to shoot an elk w/ mine. I buy a liscence every year, but never seem to see any in the area I hunt. I'd like to shoot one at 300 yds or so with mine (and the 100 gr Barnes TSX) to see how it'd do though. I know lots of elk have been taken over the years with 25-06 and even 243's, but the one's I'v heard of have all been inside 200 yds.??

    Up until a few years ago all my sister used for elk was her 243 with 100 grain partitions. Have seen her put them down out to 350 yards with it. I would like to try about a 500 yard shot on one with my 25-06 with 100 ttsx. It has blown through the shoulders of big deer and antelope with no problem at that range so I think it'll kill no problem. Probably not exit on the shoulders though.
