I was hunting my favorite ambush spot where two deer trails cross. Just before dusk, four deer ambled along one of the trails about 75 yards from my post. I was sitting on a cushion with my back to a tall oak tree. I got a good angle on one of the deer and aligned my cross hairs upon the chest. At the shot, the rifle bucked against my shoulder as the blast echoed through the forest. The deer bounded away but toppled in mid stride after a run about same distance as two school buses. My bullet had torn through the heart and smashed a leg bone. I thought it was a doe but turned out to be a young antler-less buck; a dinner plate trophy, indeed!

My carbine is a Glenfield model 30GT and ammo used was 150 grain Power Point.

30-30 is a keeper!
