Tonight i decided i would shoot a doe if the shot presented itself. Long story short, I had a nice doe come out, ranged her @ 494yds. Dialed in the range/wind and squeezed. She gave a big mule kick and ran up to the top of the hill where 2 more deer joined her. They all just stood there for a moment then trotted off. I watched them go over 1/2 mile all still seeming to be fine. (she was the last one in line as they ran though) Looked for roughly 1hr till dark for blood to no avail. Anyone ever had a deer mule kick like this and equal a miss? If it hadnt been for the mule kick i would have certainly thought a miss by the way she trotted off. My experiences have been that a kick like this equals the boiler room. Thanks for the input! FYI: 500yds has been my self imposed live target limit but am fairly confident at that range. Took 2 Doe one right after the other with this rifle a week ago @ 420yd and both shots were right on the money.
