Sat. morning. on stand at 0600.
Between 0700 and 0945 saw 6 does. Do not have a doe tag, so they all went on their merry way.
1015: Saw 6 point buck approaching my stand from about 175 yard. Watched him till he closed to about 85 yards, when he stopped to munch a bit. Turned sideways, and that's all she wrote.
Gun: Stevens 200
Scope: Weaver K4
Ammo: Hornady 95 gr. Superformance.
Buck took exactly 2 steps, and fell over.
I guess, after my experience, that the .243 is actually enough gun for deer.
Thanks to all
Nice shot, congratulations!
(It would have been more dead with a magnum....
Just remember, when you pull the trigger, the bullets come out going very, very fast. So make sure to keep the weapon pointing away from you.
