    Here's an interesting observation from a good hunting experience. I can tell that the individual is a good hunter and shooter from the entire article. It was revealing that the shooter is good enough to notice the affect of the shooting angle even at such "short" range. Kudos to da shooter!

    "The deer was quartering towards us on a 25° downhill angle 374 yards away. I aimed just behind the deer’s shoulder. When I fired, the deer went down immediately."

    "The bullet had hit a bit higher behind the shoulder than I had planned, but it was definitely a killing shot." (Italics added)

    PS: Hope I haven't broken any Circle-c rules
