Now you have a horse with a broken leg and a gunshot wound?

No, the high velocity lead implant cured the broken leg!

Shot some groundhogs and filled holes to prevent a horse with a broken leg, that's about it, lol.

Here in Bama the armadillos are the problem. They dig big deep holes in the pasture. Add to that the 'green' stuff covers these holes making them much more of a hazard that the prairie rat holes in CO.

largest animal I have ever shot with a .22 LR: feral Hog at point blank range after a friend gut shot it with his bow. I just didn't quite have the b@lls to go in after it with a knofe, so I used the 10\22 to double tap it at the base of the skull.

largest taken on a regular basis with a .22: close range coyotes in my back yard in NY. Took one straight through the eye at 10 yards at the start of spring while it was stalking my grandfather's jack russel.
