    At 7:41 a.m. Tuesday, just after the down pour of rain started, this doe walked by at 15 yards. By the time I had my Henry shouldered, I had to wait for her to clear some trees and that made the shot about 40 yards. I placed the front bead sight, behind the left shoulder and at the sound of the shot, she double "mule kicked", ran about 50 yards and fell over.

    The 240gr. Hornady XTP took her heart out. I was impressed with how cleanly this rifle killed the deer.
