    I took my daughter deer hunting to our favorite spot in southern utah looking to win the rifle in the big buck contest. This buck came out at 400 yds and at first took our breath away. After a closer look we decided it was too small to win the rifle and let it go. It gave her four more chances and on the last she shot it at 104 yds. The 375 Tejas 260 gn accubond entered thru the guts passing thru the liver and lungs exiting just behind the shoulder leaving the hole shown and covering the ground with blood and guts. The deers legs went stiff, took two steps backwards and fell over. The antlers are 5 X 5 with a 27" outside spread.

    I'd say she carries a big rifle and knows how to use it!:D
    Congrats on a very nice buck.

    Tell your daughter congrats from all of us. Anytime you have a "small" buck that size I'll be more than happy to come out and shoot him for you :D

    Nice buck! I was afraid you were a bit undergunned but looks like the 375 did the trick!:D
