Default Peruvian whitetail

I am planning a trip to the mountains of Peru next year to go in search of a Peruvian whitetail. This is a medium sized deer, 48 to 55 inches from head to rump and 27 to 31 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs approximately 140 pounds.
Considering a shot between 100 and 200 yards, I plan to use a CZ 527 .223 or a CZ 550 LUX .308
Any advice to improve this challenge?

Yes, unless you are planning to hunt Guinea pigs, leave the 223 at home and take the .308. Why go all that way and take a less than good deer caliber? Yeah I know, a .22 rimfire will kill a deer, I wouldn't hunt deer with that either.

^^^ What he said. You may also want to check into Peru's game laws to see what they require for hunting deer as well as laws for bringing firearms and ammo into their country.
