    I must also Amen the statement... Nice Buck.... looks like it's time to prepare to start hunting deer again after a 6 year sebatical. I am also interested on your setup on your 10 mm .....can't wait to hear your specs. (I have a GSSF certificate coming and am thinking about a 10 mm).

    I was going to get a 10mm just for the same purpose.
    Nice job!!
    As soon as I saw the buck I knew you were from the Great White North. The deer folks shoot down south (NO disrespect intended, please) as so small. They look like german shepherds with a big rack.
    I registered my deer in Vining, Mn where the big buck contest was happening. The monster that won was a 14 pt buck with a dressed weight of 310 lbs!!
    Did you get a weight on yours?

    Great shot and a very nice buck. The 10mm is a very impressive round.

    Deer hunting in Iowa (I'm moving there next month) is restricted to pistols, shotguns, and muzzleloaders.
    I was thinking about getting a handgun for hunting deer, and was considering a single-action or revolver.
    The idea of hunting with a G20 or G29 seems quite appealing...
     
  11. Hey, do they allow a 14" or 16" Thompson Contender/Encore in .30-30, .35rem, .308, etc? Scope one of those babies and you'll have a mini-rifle.

    I remember from the regs that they listed the specific "pistol" calibers that were allowed for deer, and I know for sure that .45-70 was one of them. I'll have to check the regs and see what else is allowed.

    So, you folks got 275# german shepherds up there in the white, barren, Gawd-forsaken Nawth?

    Excellent story.

    Look, you bagged your deer and did it as efficiently as possible.

    BTW - missing the mark happens a lot.

    The key is put the animal down fast and harvest it!

    Looks like a very healthy, well proportioned deer with a good rack. You obviously have a 6" or longer barrel, how does it chronograph with the DT loads? Don
     
  17. I don't want to make the shooter feel bad, but perhaps we can discuss the shots taken and how it could be better in the future:

    1. You shot with loads you didn't sight in ahead of time? Always sight in your hunting load so you know exactly where it hits, and the distance you can shoot.
    2. You shot at 65 yards? That is a long ways for a handgun. Especially if you haven't sighted in with that specific load. It can be done, but as the distance increases then so does the risk. How good is the shooter? We all have to establish our limits. Here I just want to point out that most shooters reading this should not assume 65 yards is close enough for handgun hunting.
    3. You worked well to get the deer you had initially shot. Waiting is good if the deer takes off out of your sight. But you have shown that if the deer is still there, then follow-up shots are a must to make sure you put down a wounded deer.
    4. The non-fatal neck shot doesn't speak too well for the 10mm. Don't know if the .44 hollow points I use would have done better with that shot. What would a .30-06 soft point have done with that neck shot?
