On a recent adventure to Texas USA daughter Mary took a stud east Texas Whitetail with a 25-06 just on dusk, around 180 yards. We got meat Mary said! We had a 30 minutes search for her buck in the dark as the buck turned back on its self and didn't really leave much of a trail to follow. The blood trail improved with in 30 yards as we followed it down through a dry creek bed where it double back and with 20 yards we found it!
Outfitter Bruce Hunnnicutt from www.texasboarsnbucks.com hosted our adventure in East Texas and we can recommend his great service and its extremely affordable!
