About 3 inches on an elk that ran over me in a thicket. I didn't quite get the rifle to shoulder and cheek. When I fired I was twisting away and jumping back to keep the bull from hitting the muzzle with his shoulder. Big powder burn on his shoulder.

Whitetail doe with a 4" Ruger .357 couple years ago. Had to wait for her to walk away from my stand so I didn't mess up and hit the stand. She walked between the tree and my ladder. Was more worried the muzzle blast would mess up my boots.

I'd chartered home from Naknek after a very busy fishing season bearing D&D pizza's and refreshments. We took the jetboat up the Copper to see the salmon (about 300,000) and bears. My wife said there was a bear that was coming around every evening but hasn't messed with anything yet, I really enjoy my toddies but I held it down in case of bear duties. After Jay Leno it appeared the bear wasn't gonna show so I made a serious highball or 2. Next thing was my wife shaking me in my chair and yelling can't you hear that,,,,,, I grabbed a rifle and headed to the ruckus,, we had a dozen meat chickens in our old rabbit hutch's about 50yds away. As I neared the noise stopped and being pretty close I shouldered my 425 Express and clicked my flashlight,,the bear was just rising up and had a white chicken in his mouth,,I shot and the fire from my muzzle reached his throat. I immediatley retreated to the house and regroup and turned the genset on to see he has died instantly! At that point I was free to freshen my drink.


I tend to use more than enough gun

I've shot three whitetails at less than three steps away, two with a muzzle loader and one with a scoped .308. All from the ground while moving about/still hunting. Two were running towards me, both shots were almost "self defence". One deer died at my feet, the other swerved and died a couple steps away. I also stalked up to one that was under the lip of a river bank, I pretty much poked the rifle barrel into its neck and pulled the trigger. Quite satisfying hunts in all three cases. Shot a bull elk at about 4 or 5 steps away, but that's a significantly longer distance than those deer.

I shot a running buck at about 12 or 13 yards with a 6" .357. I cut an aorta out of his heart with the bullet and he ran about 100 yards and dropped dead.

Whitetail doe with an old Bear Grizzly recurve at the length of my cedar arrow plus about 6 inches.

She was coming right at the white oak I was standing behind. I drew and side-stepped .........she threw on the brakes with an "OH, SCHIDT !!" look in her eyes.........

Maybe 25 yards. Muley stepped over the hill after I stepped out of the truck and was taking a wizz. One-handed shot with a 300 win mag across the back of the tailgate put him in the freezer.

Little buck last Saturday. He damn near bumped into the tree my stand was hanging from. Has to literally let him get far enough past the tree so I wasn’t shooting straight down. Some doe’s had passed through a little earlier and he was hot on the trail.

Bout 12 to 15 ft

Area 41.
11pt chasing a doe full blown retard.
Kinda a shoot or possibly get plowed over type of thing
With the old school TC Renegade 50 cal.
Head on shot just below the white spot on his neck.
Not fun dressing that one out.
Pretty much centerline shot thru the chest , abdominal cavity and lodged inside the hip.

Another was a 8 pt at around 20 ft late October
Fuuuking grunt call didn't stop him out around 30 yds for a shot.
He reacted and came in head down picking up speed.
That was another Renegade 50 cal kill.
Shoot him right above the divide in his shoulder blades about 4 inches down from the top of his length wise back line.
Clipped his spine and raked down the underside of it thru his upper chest cavity then into his stomach and intestines.

Not fun gutting that one out..

I shot a blacktail buck at about 18" from the barrel of my rifle as it ran past me. Didn't even have time to shoulder the rifle, hip shot it through the chest and sent it rolling. Dang near ran me over.

Had two does come running up and stop about 10ft in front of me. Had my Ruger 44 carbine. 3 shots in 2 seconds had them down (3rd shot was just to finish the one deer that was dead on its feet).

Point blank, as in barrel inches from his skull. Black bear that wanted either my seat in the tree or me. Either way, he lost.
