    Average running Speed of Deer and Boar. (working out holds, millrads)

    Hi All,

    Trying to put together shooting card that will have the average speed of these beasts, so that I can work out the holds.

    I treid google some how a 40-60 miles per hour aint cutting it. Iknow a average speed of a man is walking is roughly 4kph.

    Not planning to take pott shots at running beasts, and possibly injuring.

    Trying to estabish the theory.

    Info on speeds of the running targets shoots will be great.

    any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    30 mph for Roe, if pushed they can get above that

    easier to learn to stalk quietly!

    100m running deer range regs taken from the BSRC website.

    e) Target run as seen by the shooter: 23.28 metres (23.0 ± 0.25)
    f) Target crossing time: 4.4 seconds (4.3 ± 0.2)
    therefore average speed is equal to
    11.7947 mph
    18.9818 kmh
    5.2727 meters/sec
    1037.9384 feet/minute
