First CB Deer!
Harvested my first cast [bullet] game on a S TX management hunt Friday! Was watching a lone doe and a nice young 8-point most of the evening while waiting for a hog to show up. Darkness fell, hogs didn't show up so I decided the doe would be good for the management effort. She never would give me a full broadside shot so I put a heat-treated RD 460-350 GC [bullet] into her chest and it exited about the middle of the ribcage on the far side. She went about 50 yds into heavy brush so it was a tough track. Blood trail went arrow-straight north for 25 yds and stopped. For some reason she abruptly turned west and piled up after another 25 yards. Used lots of candlepower and two hours of drinking time but we found the old girl.
[Bullet] may have broken up-more testing will be required.
