South Texas Deer vs. 30-06

I had the unfortunate experience, lately, of seeing what a friends 30-06 did to the small South Texas Whitetail. It’s not a pretty picture. In fact I’m choosing not to post pictures because of the mess it made. If we were talking about a horror movie…sure. But not hunting. I’m just going to put this out there and leave it alone. The 30-06 is over powered for Texas deer unless we’re talking about a long distance shot…not that such a shot is readily available in South Texas.

    1. It’s a good round for the western mule deer I grew up around. The deer here in Texas have twigs for ribs though. It doesn’t take much to smash through them.
