I had some good luck with a huge doe just this weekend... Busted her good right behind the shoulder blades, and she still ran 80 yards... and in so doing jumped two horse pasture fences... I am always amazed at how far an adult can run after a kill shot. It's muzzleloader season here for another week....
For backstraps I like to do a kabob. I cube them to about 1x1in then swipe a thin layer of cream cheese across, add a pepper slice
(I like banana peppers), wrap in bacon and add to the kabob. then just place whatever else on the kabob. Mushrooms, onions or whatever you like.
Here's my buck i got yesterday morning... Proud of the shot as well as the animal. He was 260 yards away... used my Remington model 700VDS in .243. He's a 9 point, and weighed 220 lb.s biggest animal I have ever taken. That's really big for here in NC.
