This is a question about h&l shots only. I'm not interested in head and neck.
so I have managed to shoot a few deer now, mostly roe and muntjac and a couple of prickets.
Excluding the Munties which drop on the spot all the roe and fallow have run.
shots were good and they basically would fall between 40 and 100 yards. The fallow ran furthest.
i shoot 1/3 of the way up just behind the back of the leg so it is more heart shot than anything. Now having done some reading I see the BDS recommend 1/2 way up as it gives more margin for error. What I want to know is will it increase the potential of dropping them on the spot? My heart always goes in my mouth when they run but so far never been a bad shot. (Touch wood)
roe are shot with 243 and between 85 and 100 grain.
both prickets were shot with 150 grain 30.06
comments and discussion open. Go for it.....
