    Plenty of gun. Damage to animal is based on where you hit him. Shoulder shot will mess up a lot where heart lung shot will work fine.

    Which bullet is he shooting? Any 150 will work well on the Mule Deer out of the 7 but Antelope aren't very big or heavy boned at all so I'd stick to a non-bonded type bullet such as the Hornady SST or others unless he's going to shoot it through the shoulders. Just my 2 cents.
