Bobby's deer.

That there looks like a good eatin' deer! Markc and I went on our little south Texas excursion and had a great time. Finally got that NEF .280 Remington up and running and tooka fat doe and sow hog. Used the old Remington 150gr. Core-lokts SP's. The doe ran about 100 yds through some of the most horrible brush and thorns I've ever seen. Mark and I got scratched up pretty bad. But, ironically, the hog kill went totally opposite. The fat sow went right down with one shot behind the shoulder. Now, before everyone runs out the buy a .280 as a one shot hog gun, please note that the 150gr Core-lokt clipped the spine as it passed through the heart/lung area. The bullet still passed through and leaving a perfect "golf ball" size exit hole. Oh, and I almost forgot the two rabbits I harvested with my .357 M19 using standard .38 Special 158gr. SWC's. Meanwhile, while I was getting some good rabbit meat, Markc drilled a hog at exactly the same time as I shot at my first rabbit. We were about 1/2 mile apart at this time. Funny how those things happen, huh? Anyway, thats a wrap-up of my season so far.
