I was lucky enough to be invited again to hunt on a tree farm in PA where you can hunt early due to crop damage. The owner got four tags from the state. A hunter is allowed to shoot two antlerless deer per property that has the "red tags" All rules of regular hunting season apply. I got a doe Wednesday night with my 20 gauge Ultra Slug Hunter, and another last night with my Triumph. I have been there about six times this prior to this and either saw bucks or could't shoot safely. Most of the deer come in from adjoining properties the are off limits. This is in serious tree hugger territory in Bucks County.
It was a good opportunity to test out some new ammo in my 20 gauge and a new bullet in the Triumph. I used Winchester Platinum Tips in the slug gun. I tried a 300 grain XTP with a Harvester Crush Rib sabot in the inline pushed with 100 grains of Blackhorn 209. I was really impressed with the expansion on the 300 grain XTP, and am sold on the Blackhorn.

My slug gun loves the platinums..
They do group really well, and the bullet itself seems to expand nicely.

what, no pics?
I was by myself and by the time I packed the climber and got the deer out to the field where I could drive in it was too late.

That's where they come from, and where they head to when you hit one. Haven't had a problem yet except for a stolen stand.
