    Look on a box of Bisquick or go to the online sight and look for a recipe for quick chicken pie. Substitute the venison for the chicken and it will be the best "chicken pie" you ever had.

    I've been looking at threads on one but can't find anything recent. Is the Lee 175gr mold working out for members or does someone have something better? I'm leaning that way

    Disagree. We used a Bolt 410 on a number of deer. Just remember to keep the shots within a reasonable distance. I'm not a fan of 243 for deer but with the proper bullet it will work fine. Start your daughter on a 22lr and work up to prevent...
