Default My Daughter's Buck from Wis Youth Hunt

My 11 year old daughter connected with a nice buck on Saturday! This is her second buck in two years of hunting and she is showing to be a very good shot. Both bucks one shot one kill. She was very excited, but not as much as I was!

On a side note, bullets do weird things... She hit it right about where I told her to, but it entered, hit a rib and skid between skin and body, entering cavity about 4 inches further back and exiting diagonally through belly (you can see exit hole in picture with us). The deer was perfectly broadside when she shot. Hit low lung, hard liver and unfortunately nicked gut as well. 6.5 Creedmoor for what it's worth.

Sounds like a bullet "performance issue" and perhaps one less "frangible" with greater penetration is in order. Your daughter (and you) should be pleased with the participation of the wildlife, her level headed performance, and a swift completion of the "ritual", which makes us both human and meat eaters. Congratulations to you both...

Thanks!

I guess it's possible, but I doubt it was a bullet issue, it was a 130 grain Accubond, a bullet that we've shot many deer with. From what I have seen they do not fragment and would think certainly not on a rib. My son shot a buck at about 70 yards hit it low neck in the spine recovered the bullet and it was surprisingly almost all intact. I have recovered several others and none have been what I would consider fragmented.

This kind of stuff makes this old guy grin from ear to ear! I have made all of my plans, scouting trips and placed treestands in preparation for Iowa's youth season the last two years. it's all about the kids. My two grandsons ages 8 and 10 have accounted for three does and one buck the last two years. Next in line is a granddaughter who is a little unsure of herself. I will use your daughters success and say, "Looky here Mae Mae this little gal is two for two and both were bucks!"

Give your daughter a high five for me and thank her for the girl power vibes for my granddaughter to use in the deer woods!

Couple of things, if not the bullet, then the driving force is low. To turn a bullet aside on bone it already has to be practically unstable prior to its entry into the deer - imho. Collecting the nearly intact bullet from a spine shot is an indication of insufficient 1.) bullet weight-ballistic coefficient-shape-construction or 2.) velocity.

AND I do not mean to turn this into ANY criticism in your choice(s). A dead deer from a GOOD SHOT is just as dead regardless of whether the bullet passes through, tumbles on impact, is recovered, or (not this case) explodes. It is intended as Food For Thought on why bullets tumble.
