I just wondered if anyone else has had the same experience as this one.
Last year I took a bead on a female roe kid from a high seat at a range of 115 yards, the mother had wandered away and located behind the kid about 15 yards and also sideways about 8-10 yards away was the mothers other sibling munching away.
At the shot, (it was 6am with relatively low light levels) the flash blinded me for a few seconds but I thought the kid had spun through 180 degrees. But there was only one kid now standing there and normally the others run off at the shot, but it was swaying in a wobbly manner, so I shot it again thinking I had wounded it with the first shot.
Turns out the first kid had done what I thought and it had gone 10 yards through a bush and dropped stone dead. The second shot then put down the second kid who had been only been stunned by bone shrapnel from its sister.
The lesson I learnt was, never shoot if you have a second animal nearby if its behind the target animal.
