How do you hit a running deer?

With a Running Deer bullet. If you don't have a Running Deer bullet then you wait till he stops.

How do you hit a running deer?

I use an open sighted 30-30 for when I am walking through the woods. I usually do not have a shot over 50 yards when walking. It is easier for me to find the deer with the open sight than with the scope. Also I can get a second shot off pretty quick if need be.

Bullelk, if you can hit a running animal at 200 yards, you're the kind of guy I want in my foxhole with me. Yes

I wouldn't even try that.

Illinois Dave-

That's pretty common out here, you just do what you have to do. Anybody who hunts the wide open country for awhile leaqrns how to hit running critters. But sitting in a foxhole, there's spiders in there isn't there? Spiders scare me lol
Just kidding!

Take care-

Carl

Bullelk,

One morning early in the season here, I had to knock a spider off my tree stand platform before I could climb in. I'm not saying it was big...but I heard a distinct thump when it hit the ground 20 feet below.

I was afraid I was going to have to shoot it if it started climbing back up...LOL. Oops!
