Story: I was walking around the corner of an old cow feild, keeping in the woods. I got to where I wanted to sit down, took my back pack off and cleared out a spot to sit. As soon as I touched the dirt I heard something coming through the thicket to my right. I kept looking, then all I could see was horns throwing leaves every where, I waited for him to walk in front of me in my shooting lane, and that was all she wrote. One shot and he dropped like a sack of taters. It was a lung/heart shot it went in behind the left shoulder and straight out the right. I was using my .243 that my papaw gave me for my first deer rifle. The .243 really does a number on the vitals.
