    I got this 8 pt last night at 5:20. Ive been sitting under a big cedar tree
    for the last 3 days. Where Im sitting overlooks a small growed up pond.
    It still has plenty of clean water in it and the deer and wildlife were using it
    all day long.Along the dam of the pond were numerous rubs and they were
    being rubbed at night.I could see the changes in the bark every morning.
    I knew if I sat there long enough a buck would show up.
    This buck came up the wooded draw just behind the pond dam.I watched him go
    around and start to walk onto the dam at about 100 yds from where I was sitting.
    He gave me a good broardside shot and the 243 barked.He dropped where he stood
    as the Hornady 95gr SST double lunged him. Im really proud of him because
    I got him where no one has ever thought about deer hunting on the farm at. Everyone would always head
    on deep into the farm,saying all the deer are in the back.....
    Im posting a entry and exit pics of his inner rib cage to show what a 243 can do.

    I've dropped more deer in their tracks with my .243 than my 30-06, 30-30, or any other rifle I've used. It's a great deer hunting caliber.

    Oh yea, nice buck!

    Nice Buck congrats. Love my 243 85 grain bolt tail bullet. They are deadly. My buddy hunts with a 22 250 and kills big Bucks every year with it. Don't need big gun to kill Deer.
