we call them hinds  :hugegrin:  dropped her with my single shot Bergara 7mm-08, the patchy coloured ones are Fallow deer, amazing eating but I dont shoot them in this paticular area, I like to have them handy for photography and just watching them.  Have shot a few more yearling red deer lately for the freezer.

just checked them out, cool looking lighter breed.

 

7mm-08, damn, i guess its rather hilly there, and long shots might be needed!

its probably the most common calibre here, very little difference between the 7mm-08 and a 308 which is also very popular, many people like using .223 ( 5.56 ) for deer hunting in the bush, a well placed neck or head shot works well. Yes its very hilly country here, most hunting is either in tight bush or long shots up to 500m on the open tops country or river flats.
