Nice one, beautiful little whitetail. Love the colours of the background. Can't beat that lens for overall versatility out in the natural world.
I'm not sure truly what is going on with your pics. I'd certainly try some controlled testing to see what the problem is though - that lens should do noticeably better than what you're getting.
I haven't had my 70-300 VR out for a few months but played with it a little today. Hard not to like this lens
