Nice buck 280.  Good choice on shooting that buck.  It is definetaly bigger than what you probably would have taken in the Palouse.  Definately a buck to be proud of.  Two deer in one day that's awsome.  Not too many people on here can say they've done that.  Good job.

Good looking buck Lady!

She shoots 140 grain Core Lokts.   Have never seen anything like it.  The bullet went in fine right through the bisep region and looks as if the bullet deflected down.  Thats all I can guess.   I found flakes the side of my finger nail around and quite a bit of blood shot. The deer would not have died right there if it wasnt for the follow up shot.   I guess its just one of those things.   All worked out in the end! 

That's exactly why I've posted on here many times that I would NOT use core-lokt bullets, especially for elk. My experience with them has been the same. It was my brother's deer actually- I personally have never used core-lokts. But in this incident the bullet disintegrated after hitting nothing more than a rib on a small mule deer. This was out of a 30-06 so it's not like it was the result of ultra high velocity.

I had the exact same thing happen to me in 08 after shooting my trike.  Went in fine and then disintegrated.  165gr Core Locks.  Part of it exited, pieces stopped by the skin, and one section went south through the stomach.
