I'm with Zrex -- I've shot a ton of deer over the years with everything from a .243 to a .300 Mag and I've never seen a bullet of any flavor or caliber cause a wound like that. And to make matters worse, I'm an ER guy and I know what bullet wounds look like. Nice try bud, but that ain't no bullet wound.[8D]

Thats NOT a bullet wound.
I would have agreed with you until this last season. Our .270 shots have always left a clean 1 to 2 inch diameter exit hole through ribs. But my son shot a doe with his .270 at a similar angle and we had an exit that was about 2/3 the size of the one in this photo. It must have hit a freak combination of shoulder, rib, and fluid, and pushed it all through. I'm telling you we could not believe the hole.

This does not look like a bullet hole to me, but neither did the one I saw with my own eyes.

I saw a guy bring a doe into the processors that he had shot with a 30-06 and a I believe it was a 125 or 110 gr bullet. The bullet hit the shoulder blade and blew up. Left a hole bigger than the hole in that deer's neck. Killed her on the spot, but the guy was kind of lucky. The damage was mostly surface damage.

If that deer in the above photo really was killed by a bullet, then I'd recommend a heavier bullet next time.
