Hog's of many different weights, use to work in a slaughter house and when our rod gun (took a .25cal cap and shot/retracted a 6" rod into their scull) wouldn't put them down we kept an old single shot .22lr rifle and I would shoot them behind the ear. You would be surprise how big of a hole you can put in a hogs scull and they won't go down.

Years ago I was hunting the tree rats and on a few occasions during deer season a fat doe would come by. Good bye deer.

Long, long ago. My father often went fishing to God's Lake in Canada. The Indian guide told how they would wait by waters edge with a .22 rifle. They would shoot a moose thru the lung. It would drown in its own blood and fall in place, never knowing what had happened. The moose would be butchered at the shore and then packed away by canoe. That's the tale anyway.

Mostly just rabbits and squirrels. But I did help my great uncle put down a diseased buck one time.
