Drew blood today: Deer report

Discussion in 'The 10 Ring' started by glock20hunter, Nov 18, 2012.

  1. So last night I had a decent 8 point at 15yds but decided to pass. About 20 minutes later a monster 12 point ran through my thicket at about 60yds. I just couldn't get him to stop for a shot.

    Anyway, I really wanted some meat so I decided to take a doe if I saw a mature one. I had a few young does come by really close but I couldn't be for sure they weren't button bucks mixed in. Then this big girl strolled through. I shot her at 40yds and she fell dead within 25yds. As part of our management program we have to weigh them. She was 152lbs which is big for Arkansas

    I was using my stock Glock 20 with Truglo TFO sights. The bullet was Underwood 200gr XTP and it did a great job. The bullet entered mid cavity and broke through her ribs and exited by her neck.There was no recovery of the bullet but the exit was a sizeable hole. I will definitely be using these bullets from here on out. And for what its worth these were more accurate at 60-80yds than the Buffalo Bore.

  2. Well done!

  3. Nice shot. Way more impressive than taking one with a scoped rifle like everyone I know does. And a 152 doe is decent size even up here in MN.
  4. Grats!!

    I've hunted with my 20 this weekend as well. Yesterday, I had a cow horn spike at 5 yards and let him walk .... figured I'd let him grow up!! Also, I know there's a nice 8-10 point in that area. Hopefully, I'll have a pic and a story soon.

  5. Very nice shot and hunt bud. Being able to hunt and process ones game is probably the best feelings in the world.
  6. And my favorite part!

  7. I am jealous. Wish there's available real estate around here for that.

    Btw, you should repost this in the 10mm Hunting stickie top of the page so we'd always have access with only a few clicks.
  8. Very nice :thumbsup:
  9. Very nice, thanks for sharing.

    I hunt with a .45-70 instead of a Glock 20, so when the big one comes through, I don't have to wait for him to stop. I can just fire a shot in his general direction and he'll die.

    At least if you miss with the G-20, the hurricane that comes after will solve the problem.

    But what about the damage to the environment?

    Looks like a guy was hunting with a 10mm a couple of miles from me, last week:

    Nice work!
  15. Congrats glock20hunter. Back straps wrapped in bacon are my favorite.

    I made that last week and you are right. I cut backstrap into slices across, about an inch thick. Marinated them in a mesquite BBQ marinade in a ziplock bag for a couple of days, then wrapped them in bacon and grilled them - my wife says it's the best she's ever had.

    Congratulations, that's a monster of a doe! They average around 90 pounds in my neck of the woods. In my opinion, any game taken with a pistol is something to be proud of! I'll have to try that Underwood load.
