125 yards laser ranged. CVA Mountain Stalker, 362gr Custom Tipped Powerbelt with 100gr Pyrodex RS.

I had been walking through a small field with a mix of pine trees and kicked up 3 doe. I tracked them for a while and thought i lost them and was taking a short cut back to the trail i had been walking. I saw one doe flash through some pines and i stopped and whistled and this one stopped in an area where i only had roughly a 2 foot x 2 foot shooting hole.

Blood was everywhere, a 2' wide blood trail and i can put my hand on a bible and say that's the truth and not get zapped! After roughly 30 yards i came on to the kill. She had gone down in the thick timber crud but it wasn't bad to drag her through. It wasn't a big doe, maybe 90lbs at the most but that's pretty common size of doe that we take.

Internal damage was just insane! I lost no meat on this deer.

Those inserts really make a difference. Good pass through. A 245 isn't too light with the insert now is it?

Good idea,,,tarps are also good for dragging the game out of the woods.

You know what is wierd..people hang them in different ways to skin and quarter the deer..I was taught to hang them by the neck or antlers..

that has always worked well for me..had my little doe skinned and quartered and iced down in the ice chest,,and back in my vehicle to hunt some more in less than 30 minutes....with a little 3 blade old timer....

But for you to get zero dirt,,,I would have to see that... lol!
