I absolutely can tell you we were aimng for the head. Both were does and our rule is nothing but head shots on does. We don't want to ruin any meat. I have my friend Johns doe kill at 600 on video. The day before he took 4 shots at one at 625 and the wake looked perfect on everyone but there was some fine brush in front that we thought we could get through. That deer never moved after every shot and John just held on the same spot and squeezed another one off. He hit the same piece of brush on every shot. I told him afterwards it looked like a nice group
. Whenever I get time and figure out this editing stuff I'll post it.
I watched mine at 750 and my camera man (I won't mention any names) had ahold of the tripod arm and just the vibrations from him makes the video so shaky it's hard to see anything. I have some pretty nice footage from this year, I'll share when time permits.
I believe Ernie means by "working on one" that they kept shooting and shooting and shooting and shooting. Sometimes there are slight pauses between shots and sometimes there can be a 1/2 hour lull or more while waiting for a good shot. Some guys would rather just put lead in the air and fire 20 rounds than wait for a good opportunity and fire one well placed shot. I still have a few guys I hunt with who claim "if the lead ain't flying, your deer ain't dying". I have a hard time hunting with them and I have caught grief because I let good bucks go over the years just because I didn't want to take a half ass shot just to say I shot. When I pull the trigger I expect to hit what I'm shooting at and if I miss I get frustrated until I can figure out why. Usually it's operator error, like not correcting enough for wind. But misses do happen, and we try to make a correction and take a clean shot on the next one.
