I can't believe you would take a shot at a running deer that was more than 5 yards away! This is really bad for our sport. And...you used a target bullet. What were you thinking...anyway?
I was thinking I wanted to kill that particular deer and if I didn't shoot soon it'd be further away still!! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I was going to ask the deer if it could tell the difference between a hunting or target bullet but it died before I got there.
Had a good hunt up in Wisconsin... got two (2) of the six (6) deer I saw... a little slow but it was a fun time. Randy, my hunting buddy, got two (2) also, he missed one that was bedder at about 200 yards. He's a conventional hunter... no bipod or custom rifle
... but he did have a complete box of the same lot and weight factory hunting bullets... probably different than he sighted in with but that's his way, always has been and probably always will.
He get's a little amused by my hunting equip and style... but likes the results as he keeps the deer.
