First deer

Took this 160 lbs doe on the 24th with a Browning 270 a-bolt. My 7mm's scope was off by a foot at least, causing me to miss an even bigger doe.

Most deer down here are small, but that makes it even more challenging to kill a nice sized deer.

Awesome deer! I didn't know you could use a center-fire rifle in FL. Years ago when I was using a rifle in Upper Michigan I used a Remington Model 4 semi-auto in a 270. Great caliber and great deer!! :wink:

Nice deer Seth. I know there are some bigger deer around your part of the state. You'll have to come over one weekend and go hunting with me in the piney woods of NE Fla some time!!

Rick anything other than a center fire cartridge would be illegal down here in Florida!!

Is that true??? Are you prohibited from using shotgun or muzzle loader?

There is a separate muzzleloader season, two days in late November and two more in mid February. Shotgun falls into genaral gun season (Nov. 26-29, 2009 and Dec. 12, 2009 - Feb. 17, 2010)
But don't let this mislead you, this is for Northwest Fla.

Excellent job, Seth. I know you're happy. It's very satisfying to sit at a meal and know that what you're eating is the fruit of your labor - especially when you clean and process the deer yourself. I shot a doe and button buck last night, and we just got finished this evening processing all the burger and prepping the cube steaks to be cubed. That was in addition to the 30+ lbs of liver pudding we fixed and put away over the last two days !!!! :shock:

No need to ! Dropped them both where they stood :-:-): And yes, the fat little does are THE best for eating ! Much easier to clean than a tough old buck, too.....
