Two deer downed in one morning

I joined my family "up north" for a deer hunt in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania. The young buck walked by spot where I was sitting on the ground partially hidden by laurels. Shot distance was about 30 yards. Later on, we organized a couple deer drives and I shot this doe as it bounded past my post. Distance was about 45 yards. One shot through the chest organs did the job in each case. I really like the penetration and performance of 170 grain Power Point ammo.

30-30 is a keeper!


Fire up the grill! Deer hunting IS NOT catch and release.

30-30 is a classic "it ain't broke, stop trying to fix it" situation. Very nice.
In God we trust.
