I was doe hnting tonite and shot one. When I went to where she had been there was no blood, not blood spray behind where she had been standing. We have 2-4 inches of snow. So I decided to walk the direction that she had went, it was about 60 yards before I found any blood, it was a spot no bigger than a quarter, and she was laying about 2ft away. The shot was about as good as it gets as far as shot placement. Just wanted to share that with everybody.

I shot a nice sized doe last weekend with my 16ga using #1 buckshot. She moved as I pulled the trigger I hit her. When I got close I didn't see any blood at all so I flipped her over and found just a little on her head. When she moved she missed the cloud but took 3 pellets to the head and that was it. I guess a 30 caliber headshot is more then enough and non of the meat was damaged.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

wow seldom ever heard of this and i have seen hundreds of big game animals shot(i was a big game guide for 9 years). the only time was once with the new at that time barnes x bullets. no expansion on the x bullet. what brand of bullet did you use? what was the size of the exit wound?
