    Sambar Deer in Texas - good to eat?

    Crs I second Poton's view . Sambhar Deer makes for excellent eating ! You can actually cure the loins like bacon . I baked this pizza a month back and decided that it could benefit from a little bit of venison " bacon " on top . If you would like the recipe , please do not hesitate to ask...

    My First Proper Rifle

    Mark Hunter Sambhar deer are extremely large . They are similar in size to an American elk. That is where l wonder if the Norma Orynx 156 grain bullets will be adequate. I have zero doubt that it will prove adequate for a Chital deer.
