      After two years,,,,,I did it!

      Yep,,,,I shot a buck with my Taurus Raging Bull .454 handgun yesterday afternoon. As you can see its not much,,,,but its my first. (Ya gotta start some where right)
      It was about a 75 yard shot. He hit the ground where he stood. Bullet was a Hornady XTP MAG 240Gr Hollow Point @1900fps.

      Congratulations!

      Small young deer taste better than big old deer.
      It's just that you can't make decent knife handles from spikes.

      I've killed a few deer but never with a handgun. I always thought it would be a thrill to do so. Congratulations.

      CONGRATS Capt.!!
      What happened, did ya' shoot all the pigs in your area? I haven't seen many "pork reports" in awhile!
      I took my .454 Bull out deer hunting last year, unfortunately it was a thin year at our camp (which is not the norm) so I didn't get a chance for a shot. Maybe this year!!

      Very nice shot,
      what was your position? Were you posted? Was it an open field shot?

      Ha-Ha-Ha,,,,MoMan,Im up to 11 hogs this year and most of the time I just forget to take a pic. Plus its late when we get finished with the hunt. But we still have plenty of hogs.

      Pic, yes It was in a field that was about 165 yards deep and about 30yards wide. The blind is about 4' off the ground at the short end of it. The deer (A doe, yearling, and this buck) came in to the far side of the field. We have a feeder just about in the middle of the field so I waited for them to get a little bit closer.
      The rest for the gun I had to deal with was a 4'section of 1" PVC that was held in place by a wire that was ran through it. Not to steady to say the least......

      Nice shot, Rick.

      I like to practice hunting with each of my hunting weapons from time to time as well.

      My recurve bow is effect to 50 yards.

      My S&W Model 29 to about 50 as well, so you made a quite good shot with your scoped 454.

      My compound bow is effect to 70 yards.

      My slug shotgun is good to about 100 yards.

      For everything else there is the Remington 700 which is effective to at least 500 yards.

      But it is great to get out there occasionally with something else besides the Remington.

      Looking forward to your hog hunting report.
