    For deer I like a light rifle, so lately its been my custom, Rem, 700, 7mm SAUM with 140 or 160 grain Nos. Accubonds. My backup is a Browning A-bolt II, 270 WSM, with 140 grain Nos Accubonds as well. If I hunt the copper only areas, I like to shoot the 140 grain Barnes TTSX.
    This California forkie was taken with my 7mm SAUM in Zone D-14 and was a true unicorn. When I caped the head the skull looked like a doe on the left side, no evidence of an antler ever growing there. This buck weighed approximately 200 lbs on the hoof, which is big for southern Cali standards.
