Wouldn't do you any good 75 yards is stretching it. That is what tickles me about the Houston crowd. They will bypass all the good spots to get on a pipeline with a long range rifle when all you need is a good Winchester Model 97,12 or 25. A 100 yards is a long shot when the leaves fall 30-30,32-40 or 44 mag is all you need and the 30-30 is overkill.

Back in the mid 70's I was on a deer lease down close to the Davey Crockett Forest and we had a new member get on the lease. He lived in Temple, Tx.....he showed up with a 300 Winchester and had it sighted in at 300 yards. The place was a jungle. Most of us used shotguns or 30.06 sighted in at 25 yards which normally would be good to 100. Everybody about laughed him out of the camp. Seldom ever saw a deer til it was right on top of you.

I shot this buck almost two weeks ago. He is a 9 point, but is really big bodied. He was about 160 lbs field dressed. When I shot him, I clipped one of his lungs. He ran about 100 yards and then crashed into the creek. I waited half an hour before I started looking for him. As I walked to the creek, I heard him get up and then he ran into the woodlot. It took us over 9 hours to find him in the dense brush. We ended up finding him in a really small, old, shallow pond that had gone dry. The pond was surrounded by a few hundred yards of dense woods on all directions; I had no idea it was back there. He was laying in a hog wallow in the middle of the dried up pond. We ended up dragging him a few hundred yards and through a gully with really steep, 20 ft tall banks. When we finally got him back to the creek, we ended up just winching him up the bank because there was no way that we were getting him up the muddy side of the creek. It has been a really exciting deer season! About a week after I shot this one, I saw a buck that had taller antlers than this one with a drop tine on one side and a bunch of stickers.

Thank you, and after getting his skull cleaned found it was a puss pocket that was eating away at his skull, doubt he would of made it through the winter. His lower eye socket was about gone.

Will try and post a picture of the eye socket later.

Yep many a deer lost its life in front of a pair of bird dogs and a Model 97 with #1 buckshot.
In about an hour a 16 gauge loaded with double aught are going to take a long walk in the creek bottom.
Great day for it foggy drizzling rain be able to slip through like a ghost.
