Re: 3 Bucks with one shot??

It all depends on how well you shoot and the deer population that you have to hunt, which means how many opportunites you have to pull the trigger in a season. A friend of mine shot 3 does with one shot last season during the depredation season. When you have 40 to 60 deer in a field at one time, sooner or later they will align themselves for the multiple shot on a regular bases. Doubles are a common thing. He shoots a 7mag using 150gr winchester silver tips. Last season he killed 143 and his 12 year old son killed 34 of the 35 he shot at using a 223 short mag. He's not a long range shooter, but anything under 400yds is dead. I'm 55 years old and I had killed 200 by the age of 20 and quit counting. My longest shot is only 526yds and I went for 27 years without missing a shot. I'm not trying to bragg, but stating that when you're shooting volume, you become pretty good as long as you know your limitations. A good friend of my fathers managed a large plantation and he stopped counting at 1000 and his number one rifle was a 22 hornet. It's all about the number of opportunities to shoot live targets versus punching holes in paper.
