Well my kids and I just got back from Texas again. Did pretty good with 3 decent bucks taken. 2 8's and broken 9 for my son. Didn't see any hogs this year but that's alright as we had a great time.
First buck with my 35 Whelen and it worked perfectly. Barnes 180TTSX hit him facing me at 90 yards in the throat just off from center and was recovered a few inches behind the shoulder on the same side. Surprised it didn't exit though.
This is my daughters first whitetail. Won't be going back for deer in Texas next year I don't think but hopefully sometime again in the future.
