What is the biggest animal you've shot and killed with a 22 LR
 
Just thought this would be an interesting question to ask
And if it were legal what would be the biggest animal you would shoot it with a 22 LR

And as for what I've shot with a 22 LR .to date nothing

I hope people aren't shooting large animals with a .22. It's important to use the right caliber for the hunt.

A really big crow or a squirrel

No...I lied. Helped someone slaughter a cow one time. A 22 behind the ear and she fell drt.

Before the air hammer was common most large animals were put down with a 22 LR. It's not a hunting situation in a slaughter house. The person who puts the animals down would stand on top the chute to position himself for the shot. Most cattle were shot between the eyes at a distance of less than 10'.

Several hogs for butchering. 3 deer, a bunch of wild dogs, and a cow. Had to shoot a hog twice once as he turned his head just as I pulled the trigger.

A couple of small pigs with my BRNO .22 ................it was all I had in my hands at the time.

Mostly only shot Birds, Rats, Squirrels and Bunnies with my 22. The Pigeons hated to see me coming, (the roofer didnt)!

Groundhogs and racoons. Some of them get to be around 25 pounds or so.
