I shot a cow elk from 6 feet while standing on a high deadfall with a recurve bow. Almost straight down and into the top of the shoulder. Shot a 5 1/2 year old Shiras Moose with .54 cal. muzzleloader from 7 yards.

8ish feet away from a Sitka blacktail with a 25-06 and a 117 pro hunter. Hell of a bullet test.


Yup.

Almost the same as plumdog. Whitetail buck from a tree stand. Five feet below my feet and straight down with a recurve bow. Got another one at almost the same range with a .38 Special.

Hit a little fork buck with a 20 gauge shotgun slug out of a Mossberg 500 from about 10 yards.

I've drilled a couple or three whitetails at 15 feet from
a tree stand with bolt action lightening rods.

In fact, I've never missed at these ranges or lost a deer.

Six feet, twice. Two different deer. One I literally stepped on and the other was apparently running from another hunter. Came running past me in full panic mode.

Not big game but called in a coyote and killed him at eight feet and still coming.

Probably 8 yards in the timber on a mature buck. 168 TTSX. Walked right up on him in his bed. I think we both were equally surprised.

White tail does are generally too smart for me, but I have shot two of them:
a) 629 yards
b) 20 feet

Close enough that when the little 4x4 buck took two jumps, I had to turn a full 90 degrees to face him again.

I was riding a horse through an aspen grove when the buck stepped into the trail in front of me. As I pulled the Win 670 in 30-06 from the scabbard and slid from the saddle to the ground, the deer took those two jumps.

All I could see was hair in the scope at 12X. I lifted the rifle and found an antler tip, then followed the line down and shot him in C-2.

18 inches. Black bear, 30-06.

Tracking it in the Canadian bush as my uncle had shot it and "made a good hit" - I came across it in the dark/shadows of the lantern. I didn't see it till the last second when it moved towards me and I put one in his back/spine with the barrel between its ears. I don't think he charged me, prob didn't know I was there - just was moving away from my cousin and I happened to be on top of him.

10 yds on a 5x5 bull elk with an arrow from my recurve bow,

Another about 10 yard shot on a Chamois in New Zealand with a 12 ga load of 00 buck,

And a <10 foot shot with a 1 1/8 oz load of #7 1/2 on a 3x3 muley buck that someone had wounded and lost. I was pheasant hunting and jumped the buck, he tried to run but fell down and I could see a fresh wound and broken back leg.
