    That’s damn good shooting. I’ve shot them standing/walking and running. Two of the runners I flat out missed. Those two weren’t great shots, I probably shouldn’t have shot and I think I subconsciously pulled the shots. Two others were running and neither made it further than 20 or 30 yards after I fired. The rest were standing or walking.
    I don’t deer hunt any longer mostly due to back problems. I sure do miss the hunt and I miss the venison. Lotta good memories.

    I've never shot a deer standing still with a rifle, I know it's crazy but all 3 were moving.

    Tag#1 filled.

    Not a monster but nice sized body 3x2 and no meat damage. Used my late grandfather's Remington 700 in 7mm rem mag. Barnes Vor-TX copper 139g. Saw him at about 100 yards and he started to run, fired and he ran out of sight. Walking to where I shot him the bloodtrail let me know I had taken him. He went about 25 yards. The bullet destroyed his right lung and arteries leading into the heart and exited dead center chest. Backstrap for the family dinner tonight.
