Well done, Hardy little B##ds. A little easier to fit in Pug though
surely at 60yds the shot of choice would have been an upper neck shot as he turned and held his head eyeballing the shooter?
you cant tell where the shot comes from but I am not sure how he can see "behind the shoulder" as the animal has it's arse pointing directly at him rather than quartering to allow a shoulder entry and brisket exit

no way chancing a neck shot off sticks at 60, going behind the shoulder at that angle was the best (and most ethically sound) shot to smash into the cavity taking out at least one front leg. I was amazed the beast got up because the deer was hit well through the cavity from the first shot but the second sorted it out anyway. Both bullets were recovered just under the skin on the exit paths. Camera was to the right so the rifle's line of sight was better.
It's always better to bury a bullet safe than try trick shots.

I am glad you were quick Paul as it looked like it might get going a bit that would have been a difficult find in the sitka
Good shooting bud, with a good follow up shot.
Speaking purely personally I think I would have waited to see if he'd turn a bit more (and taken it on the chin if he ran off instead), but an impressive follow up shot for sure!
deer went in the puggy fine but the back box got ripped off on the way down the track after I smacked it of a rock
Quality shooting and a great follow up. narrow window of oportunity Job done cheers Hootsman
