Hello!

I try to say something about Roe deer (Roe Deer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) hunting in Bosnia. My english is not realy good, but pictures=1000 words!:)






Last picture is shot on 450 meters (490 yards), .300 wm, Prvi partizan ammunition, bullet 11,7 g (180 gr) soft point.

Cheers!

you've got some nice roe there, 450 metres is a long way to shoot a roe they are not a very big target ! my best shot on roe is 404m . well done and good shooting !

That is my longest shot. Heart is complete destroyed, but roe is run after shot 30 meters. I find roe with flashlight 3 hours later. Where you hunt a roe?

Beautiful pictures. Landscape looks like where I live, the mountains of Tennessee in the USA. I remember a story an old WWII vet told me about what he said were roe deer. He was in Germany and had been eating K rations for weeks. One evening just before dark he saw movement a few hundred yards away across a field near a tree line. He thought it was German solders. After looking through his binoculars he discovered it as a herd of roe deer. He jumped up into his half track truck that had twin 50 cal Browning's mounted on it and cut loose on the deer herd. He said that he and his friends got sick they ate so much meat.
