You know, if you didn't mention your daughter, people would be ALL OVER YOU saying the .223 is too small and an unethical caliber to use on deer.

Have anything to say to them? LOL!

Great going halfbaked! That sounds like a priceless memory to me! Got yah beat on that 5 minutes though...

Started up a tree on my climber, had a rope attached to the rifle, I get going up and look over to my right and big doe was working her way into a small clearing in the woods. Key word "was". DRT about 3 minutes. LOL!

Good luck man on your future episodes out there. Keep us informed!

Congrat's too. Nice!

exactly.... then again i have seen on an other forum where they said a 270 is too small for a deer,and they advised the guy to get either a 308 or a 7mm..

i always thought it was shot placement first.....

halfbaked...congrats and nice to see some young boys and girls taking a good interest in hunting.

I don't listen to half these guys on here. They say that .223 don't work on deer. Thats a bunch of bull. IT'S ALL ABOUT SHOT PLACEMENT!!!! IF YOU SHOOT A DEER WITH A .223 AND IT DOESN'T DIE IT MEANS YOU SUCK AT SHOOTING A RIFLE!!!
IF THIS LITTLE GIRL CAN DO IT THAN I'D BE PRETTY EMBARRASSED TO SAY THAT I CAN'T.

P.s. Rock on, Girl. Congrats on the two deer and keep slaying 'em with that .223!

Nuff said...

Shot placement is everything. I'm 5'9" and 215 lbs. I'm very recoil sensitive do to two neck surgeries. 5-6-7-fuses, with a titanium Plate and 6 screws. I'm still hunting but use a 25-06, and .45 BP instead of the 30-06. I've seen a lot of deer taken with .223 and usually only one shot. Most that criticise have a big eagle, and use big guns to make themselves fell good. barmy:
