    so this weekend, i had the oppurtunity to go with one of my good friends to Mount Pleasant Plantation in andrews,sc. First off, this place is absolutely amazing. His family i guess owns it with 2 other families, they have 3 guys that live their full time and maintain the 7600 acres land. All different kinds of hunting, all we did was deer and dove. But anyways, i got my first deer on saturday morning around 7 a.m. 8 point about 140 ibs. I always hear people say when you see a deer thats all you think about but never really understood what that felt like until I saw my first deer. What an adrenaline rush. i would definately recommend hunting to anyone that hasnt ever been it was an awsome experience

    ruger .308
    worked perfect

    another thing i was thinking about, you dont really realize how powerful firearms are until you see what a bullet does to flesh and bones

    Thats small.:mamoru: When I shot mine with .270 Weatherby Mag, the exit wound was so big that the stomach was falling out.:eek3:

    Also, I went hunting this weekend, its bow season only now. We didn't really get anything to brag about but a fucking big ass black boar with a single arrow! Looked like it weighed about 180 lbs and was about 4 ft long, man were we scared to go up to it because we weren't sure if it was dead. Everyone had pistols drawn.:mamoru:

    my brother also shoots a 270, and he shot a deer once that blew a huge chunk of its heart right out the other side onto the ground :eek3:

    only a nickel, eh?

    what kind of bullets were you using? soft points should make a larger exit wound..

    Florida requires a course also, unless you were born prior to 1975.

    gutting a deer isn't near as hard as it looks, it can easily be done in 5 minutes. I'm talking a class called Traditions of Hunting just to do it, theres a deer gutting/butchering lab some times and I want to see what I'm doing wrong when it comes to the butchering part. :cool:

    Congrats man.

    I can't wait to get out there and try it for myself. Too bad I haven't bought a nice bolt action yet. :sad2:

    Maybe I should just scope my Mosin for the time being. :hsugh:

    You could end up just like Want2race and spend more on the hospital bill than the gun :mamoru:

    The bullet was caught between the shoulder and hide where there should have been an exit would on the buck I shot last year...Didn't run a foot though.

    Who cares how big the exit wound was or what kind of ammo he was using? Obviously it was enough.

    Well done!
