I don't agree with PETA on much, but this is just gross.

Nope, not going vegetarian, but I will go out of my way to avoid that unhealthy crap. As an example, here's yours truely eating healthy

.300 Win Mag to the neck at 30 yards. Seems humane to me.

Bon appetit.

Update: What I meant to say was "Diagnosis: Delicious! Heh heh heh" (ala Dr. Hibbert).

Looks like hunting is a far more humane way to obtain your meat. Also good is meat from hand-raised, free-range animals. It costs more, but I think it's worth it.

Not a large deer, but has a fair amount of meat on him. Some good eating there...

I dunno, he seemed to weigh in the 180-200 pound range. Was a heavy buck. Pretty good for my first deer ever, I'll take him :)

First one I ever got was about that size, was a large 2 point (I don't know how it is where you are, but where I live we only count one side of the rack). The fact that you made a clean kill, and didn't ruin meat is what is important. You'll be eating it for a while; the only thing I got to hunt in the past few days was pheasant, though I did get lucky and brought home 4 birds.
What gun are you using? I used to use a 1903A3 when I'd rifle hunt, and a 7.5" Super Blackhawk for pistol hunting.

Mine was a 4x4, we mostly use the same convention you do, but I know of a guy who didn't and took a 2x2 in a 3pt min GMU, that's no good.

I used a Savage 110 in .300 win mag with a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40. Shot was a whopping 30 yards to the neck :)

The deer around where I was at are good sized, but for some reason don't have very impressive racks.

If I remember correctly, the antler size is a combination of genetics and nutrition.
Years ago, my dad got a mulie that was a two point, but was 31" across, and each point was about 18" from where it forked off from the antler. It took three good-sized men to drag it out.
