Thread starter #1
Killed a doe this evening with the TC Encore 7/08 pistol. 100-110 yard shot, DRT. 140 grain Nosler ballistic tip over a healthy dose of reloader 17. Any body else having any success with the pistols this year?

I've been carrying mine when I gun hunt but can't seem to put the bow down.

Congrats on the doe

Figured I would start a new one this year. I am going to have to live vicariously through you all this year as I just moved to TX and I have nowhere to hunt and have to wait another 30 days before I am legally eligible to buy a resident permit, so that pretty much kills the season for me.

I will move the posts in the old thread to this one.

Sorry to hear about your season handgunHTR, I bet it will pay dividends though in the future.

Got a doe Friday with the 414 supermag contender. Waiting on a good buck now. I love to pistol hunt with them contenders.

Big doe came in feeding on acorns this afternoon on the edge of the clearcutt. I watched for about 10 minutes as she got closer and closer. At 15 yards broadside, I laid her to rest. RIP nanny. I will always remember you. (especially that drag across the side of Mt Everest to get you out!)

Nice! I had some mild success with my Glock 20 but nothing like this.

I killed a big doe last night just before dark with my Contender. Did not get a good picture.
I was in a ladder stand between a firebreak and a foodplot. She came walking from my right hugging my edge of the field. She must have seen me reach up to pull down my ear muffs as she stopped and stared for a minute and took a few more steps.
When she reached a little break in the brush she turned slightly to me and I shot her.

She turned and ran, cut up past my stand in the brush, crossed the firebreak and fell dead. It was a Stevie Wonder blood trail if I had needed it.

I killed a doe this evening with my super red hawk 44 magnum. 15 yard shot, double lung and ran maybe 30 yards. The 240 grain XTP did a number on her!
