    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.

    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.

    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.

    Very nice shot and hunt bud. Being able to hunt and process ones game is probably the best feelings in the world.

    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.

    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:

    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.
