    Congratulations.

    It is amazing how far a deer can get with a lethal hit.

    But then, they go zero to 25 mph in two leaps and it only takes them a few seconds to get 100 yards or more before they black out.

    I shot from behind the ribs, through the heart, and out the neck in Utah. That sucker ran about 250 yards before dropping. Fortunately it left a very followable blood trail. Sometimes animals don't know they're dead.

    Made an awful shot Saturday morning. Hit him high and forward. Took out both his shoulders so he wasnít going anywhere and then had to dispatch him by hand. A damn sad sight. Those are the times where you re-think everything youíve done and practiced and you just feel plain awful for the animal. Shooting an animal and having it die in the woods is one thing but to be right next to it and experience the struggle is surreal. Sorry for the downer guys but I had to share that and get it off my chest. My wife asked why I didnít send her a picture, itís because I was ashamed of myself. Meh.

    ^^^I agree That ^^^^^^^

    is what this doe did. Every 1-1.5 foot was a swath of blood everywhere.

    It happens, and it's not like you intentionally made a less than optimal shot. I spined one once, and had to use the knife through the carotid method to finish it. Yeah, it's up close and personal, not easily forgotten. But it also means you're a normal and compassionate hunter, which is a good thing.

    It definitely changes you as a hunter to have to do that. The experience is so much more intimate

    Well I've been out since saturday and just got back to the burbs. It was tough hunting this year but my step son, dad and myself were able to take some meat home. First pic is my stepson's first deer. It's a button buck he took at 160 yards with the same .30-30 I took my first deer with. I'm proud he stuck with it, stayed in the woods and made a good shot. The second pick is a buck my dad took from the same tent blind my stepson used. And last 3 is my doe I shot yesterday late. Everyone else had left already, fortunately I had some hardware available to make the job easier. All and all a good few days.

    Took this nice eight point at around 4:15PM today. First deer I've ever taken with a scoped firearm . . . from 15 paces! Of course he came up from where I wasn't looking (over my right shoulder).

    Hornady SST sabot bullet (.50 cal 300 gr) in a 12 gauge Rem. 11-87 with Hastings rifled barrel and Weaver K-4 scope. Bad medicine!

    Wife and I took down a pig that had been raiding the feeders. I told her to shoot and I would fire as soon as she did. We were shooting at 75 yards offhand and I was afraid if she didn't get a good hit with her 25-06 he would take off. We both hit him and he went down where he stood. Pretty good size pig, he will feed the coyotes and buzzards for a few couple of days. Can't seem to get my pictures to upload off my computer.
