400yd Muntjac.

I finished work early and got down the farm to do a bit of shooting. I didn't expect to come across deer, I was looking for rabbits hares and foxes but when 2 x deer turned up it seemed rude not to oblige.

The first was only about 75yds away so I dispatched the small one with a head shot, the larger male was over 400yds away so I went for heart and lungs and he dropped like a sack of spuds.



Fantastic afternoon.

My smile says it all.

Nice shooting!

Muntjacs aren't real common here outside the zoo and I'm pretty sure suppressors are illegal for hunting.

Where are you?

Re: 400yd Muntjac.

I wouldn't know a Muntjac from a Jackalope but in my book that was a very nice afternoon stroll.

Re: legal/illegal suppressor

There are many states in the US that allow ownership of suppressors and suppressed firearms. While they are uniformly verboten as hunting tools; they may be used on private property to kill nongame species. In Texas that turns out to be an awful lot of animals on the "okay to kill with a suppressed firearm" list... i.e. hogs and all exotics.

Great shooting and great-looking Muntjacs

robbobsam,

I wasn't criticizing the suppressor ...just making an observation.

Nice hunting/shooting.

My bad, I could've passed that information along in a better way.

Hiya Guys,

In the UK sound mods are perfectly legal and in most cases preferred over non moderated rifles for the obvious reasons of noise reduction.
