    you have to be so careful when out with a novice and watch their every move, nerves get the better of some.
    well as you say lesson learned. could have been a lot worse as too could it have been better with a doe in the bag.

    you should have put it up as a poll of would you take the shot or not.
    i bet it would be a 50/50 with me personally airing on the side of caution.
    up hill from camera angle and no great back stop.. best left till next time.

    Sticks at 250m, That's shocking!!!!

    I'd take a bipod shot if I knew the hold over/bullet drop at 250m but off sticks!!!!!! I assume his ear is well and trully bent for taking the shot.

    Lesson learnt I suppose.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    When I look at the vid it appears your man clipped the front right leg?

    it looks like it might be a front leg, if you watch in full size it looks like the right leg flaps around but is hard to say

    Looks like shot goes over shoulder. Would not rule out it being clipped

    I didn't realise it was a video either, if you manage to pause it at 7 seconds, when it's in full flight and off the ground, it does look like the front leg has been hit. While it is running, it does appear to bend in an upward direction indicating it's been hit.......

    When are you back on the ground? You are very good with knowing where your deer are, hopefully you'll be able to locate and confirm and dispatch if neccessary.
