    @John thank you!

  • Nice Buck! Congratulations! I love my 450 Bushmaster!

    @Stephen thank you! I love mine to I just bought another one. A bolt action this time.

  • @Lucas Cool, mine is the AR Platform 450, I love the AR’s, I’ve got a 5.56, a .223, and the 450 all AR’s lol.

    @Stephen awesome ya my 450 is at platform and I got the 5.56/223, and a ar 10 308.

  • @Lucas Cool, yeah I want a AR-10 308, and a 350 Legend, I’m thinking about just building a 350 upper and then just switch out one if I need to.

  • @Lucas Did you have to track your Buck or did he drop in his tracks?

  • Lucas's avatar

    @Stephen he ran like ten yards into the field and flipped around. I shot a doe and he before I shot him and she ran 80 yds and dropped

  • Lucas's avatar

    @Stephen ya I think that would work but I don’t know much about building them 😂

  • @Lucas Me either but I have a friend that does 😁

  • @Lucas Gotcha, I’ve heard that if they don’t drop in their tracks they don’t go far lol.

  • Lucas's avatar

    @Stephen that would be true furthest I’ve had to track one was 80 yds. Most drop or flop around

  • @Lucas I bought mine from my cousin because he got a new 450 but he said that he only had to track one and it was only 50 or 60 yards and all the other ones dropped in their tracks. He said that the knockdown power is unreal lol.

  • Lucas's avatar

    @Stephen it definitely is. Just depends where you hit them. Through the heart drops every time just lungs they’ll run a little ways

  • @Lucas My cousin said he always shoots them in the front shoulder, he said they usually drop in their tracks when you hit them in the front shoulder?

  • John's avatar

    @Stephen depends how high. High shoulder also holds nerve endings from the spine. When you take that nerve hub out the deer is finished.

  • @John Exactly! I’ve always shot behind the front shoulder but I’m going to start going for the front shoulder shot instead of behind the shoulder.

  • John's avatar

    I still go behind the shoulder. As Steve Rinella says you’re wasting meat when you go through the shoulder.
