Took a doe tonight. It was about 80 yards all alone and I thought it was much bigger than it was. Just a yearling. The meat will be tasty, just not much of it. Kinda reminded me of gutting a squirrel. crazy

Donít beat yourself up over it. Itís the best eating even if itís a small amount. Boone and Crockett can wait until another day.

More meat on that than you would get off the tag you put on it.Deer tags makes thin soup.

I'll tell you one thing, that Winchester 150gr silver tip is a nice bullet. Made a hole the size of an orange on the other side of her. I've been using it for years on deer and it always preforms well. It will punch mickey mouse ears at 100 yards out of my model 70.

Well at least it was a doe and not a button buck. I would have really been bummed. By far this is the smallest deer I've ever shot. frown

I'm in concurrence with the rest. Real good eating there. It will be doe killing time here soon. The yearlings will be the target. Big momma does are for breeding. Sarge

You just didn't factor in the 'ground shrink'. They usually lose 25% when they hit the ground. crazy

A yearling is a 1.5 year old deer that should be close to full size for a doe. I assume you are trying euphemize "fawn."

Fin I love them silver tips. I use them in 300 wsm, 7mm, 243, 280, 270, and 3006.
All the 30 Cal use 150gr. And 140 great. In the 7 and 280. Very nasty bullet

I am not too proud to admit that when I am meat hunting, and I run into a family group, I start with the smallest one first just in case that is the only one I have a chance at before the rest run off.
Not because of the tender, succulent, delicious, easy to drag aspects, but because it breaks my heart to think about the little ones having to suffer out in the cruel world without their mother...
Yah, that's the ticket. You bet...

What I always forget is if you are using a scoped rifle they are whatever magnification you are set at times smaller . A small deer at 50 yards times 6 x looks OK until it is now actual size
