I assume the 17 hornet would be legal too. I have killed central mississippi deer weighing 224 but it was a monster. does 120 bucks 160 is common.
the 224 buck was killed with buckshot. The area of the lungs is not that much thicker on the largest deer than the smaller deer. The heavy deer will have swollen necks a hanging fat in the belly, not massive muscle or huge rib bones.
