Some idle wondering while I wait for the next meeting to start...
... I shot quite small roe buck this weekend. 200 yards, .308 with 150gr ballistic tip.
Went through the nearside shoulder; through the heart, leaving not much more than mince; and smashed the offside femur (it was deliberately aimed through the shoulders to stop it bolting into thick foresty).
It still ran 40 yards. Blood trail like a someone had been pouring it out of a bucket the whole way.
I was astonished it made it that far, with both legs supposedly out of action and blood gushing out.
So - a question: what's the furthest you've had a 'dead but doesn't yet know it' deer actually get?
