i killed this doe with my 54cal. TVM southern rifle. i was sitting on the ground against a tree. she stepped out 93 paces. 75gr. of 2f old eynsford goex. the PRB entered the shoulder as she was quartering towards me and it exited the last rib on the off side. she ran like she wasn't hit with tail held high. no blood, no hair, nothing. i walked in the woods where she ran. i found her  about 75yds, stone dead,,,,,,,,,,,,

Deer can be amazingly tough!  I won't share the stories but even with modern guns I've had them run more then 100 yards with their heart totally severed from the rest of their plumbing!

Follow up and tracking is something of a lost art anymore... I think people expect them to drop dead Right there and they don't always...

Good example or woodsmenship to follow up like that.. :thumbs:
