Martina got one.

After work and school we went up behind the house and sat in the hayfield. Saw 2 doe come out behind the house. They were probably only 75 yards from the house but about 200 yards from us. The fed up towards the top of hill. I was hoping that they would close the distance, but daylight was fading and the one doe was presenting a broadside shot at 170 yards, so I told her to squeeze it off. First kill for the 450 Bushmaster. Pretty impressive as the deer just crumbled at the shot. She didn't even realize that it fell as she saw the other deer running off. Turns out it was a button buck.

Yes it is a nasty round. First one I have witnessed being shot with it. I bought it since it is a legal round in Ohio. Granted this was a small deer, but I was impressed. It must have been angled towards us a little. Shot was back a little more than it should but the entry was in the rib cage so it caught one lung and the exit was in the guts. It literally didn't even flop. I saw it's one leg move a couple of times and that was it.

170 is a fairly good poke with the Bushmaster. Great shot and congrats on the deer.

Good for her and congrats on her success.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
