Nice young bloke.

Just came to tell me that he was going to shoot a deer that somebody had hit on the road. The deer had limped onto my property next to the road and was thrashing around in pain and needed to be dispatched.

Said that if I heard gunshots not to worry.

Boom

Three pistol shots. So much for a quick dispatch!

One round for the deer, the others are for the two dogs tied up in your yard


ETA, someone beat me to it.

Depends on the ammo being used. When we were issued subsonic ammo it always took multiple rounds to put a deer down.
Maybe the animal was thrashing around and he couldn't get a clear shot.
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:06:55 AM EDT
Maybe he gave it two to the chest and one to the head.
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:07:43 AM EDT
Probably just had 9mm, a .45 would have done it in one.........


Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:09:10 AM EDT
Save the ammo and use the cruiser?
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:09:10 AM EDT
When in doubt, shoot again. When I start shooting at an animal, I shoot till it falls.
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:12:36 AM EDT
yea. Better to dump two extra into him and stop the thrashing. you can kill a deer with one shot but not instantaneously after they have been hit and the adrenaline is up. not without a head shot and that is hard on a thrashing deer.
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:13:02 AM EDT
Yep, it must have been a 9mm

I have had to kill two deer that were hit and badly wounded on the side of the road. One with a 7.62x39mm, and the other with a .357mag.
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:27:56 AM EDT

It took him three try's to hit it!
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:30:31 AM EDT
I've finished off 2 does with a .40 Single headshots from 5 feet.

Last one I put down was with a .38 SW 642ti, loaded with +p Starfire JHP. One shot did it.

Tenderloin sounds great.

I had a rapid skunk in my yard a few summers ago. Called the PD and the animal control officer showed up along with a Patrolman and a rookie. They decide that the rookie will have to shoot the skunk. So here we are 4 grown men and 1 little skunk. I offered the use of my Colt MT but they declined. It took them 4 shots to kill the skunk. Anyway I got to bury it!
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 11:46:30 AM EDT
He actually used his gun! The good ol boys I hunt with in Missouri found a doe that had been impaled on a fence post. They did not want to shoot her, but the did have a 10lb sledge in the truck! One guy held the ears and the other guy WHACK! one blow to the head and it was all over.

Dang... please oh God don't ever let me meet up with a rapid skunk.

Do rapid skunks get more thrusts per squeeze?
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 12:20:16 PM EDT
Sounds like he was professional and above board. Nice of him to alert you.

Ban rapid skunks, for the children.

On skunks its best to kill them the first shot. If they get pissed off you do not want to be the one to bury it.

Should have offered him the use of a rifle or shotgun.
I wouldn't relish putting a large animal down with a pistol.

I use the shotty with birdshot for the skunks. Stand off distance with those is important unless they are so sick that you can just walk right up to them.

I wind up shooting a deer at least every other week. Its good for ammo rotation, if nothing else.

Finished off my buck this year with my Makarov. It took two shots with Barnhaul JHP to the head.
Link Posted: 3/28/2006 1:29:58 PM EDT
A .22 rimfire pistol is all you need to put a lot of animals down, its all about shot placement. I grew up on a farm and have butchered a variety of different animals. I have witnessed a large boar hog take a shot between the eyes with a .40 and all it did was knock the boar down DID NOT penetrate the skull one bit. Same hog was dispached with a single .22LR shot from directly behind the ear at a downward/inward angle to the center of the brain.


Admitedly it could be hard to get perfect shot placement on a wounded animal that is thrashing about on the ground.

2 of the best parts of the deer, esp the Backstrap......

Not all roadkill is mashed to the point of being un salvagable.

In this case since the deer was still alive, then shot, parts of it could have been stil good to go, so to speak.

No sense in wasting good deer.

That's cause when you hit them going fast enough they get all mashed together.

Here is your free medical advice for the day: NEVER touch a rabid animal. People have gotten rabies from handling the carcasses of rabid animals.

Carry on.

BACKSTRAP: The two loooong strips of meat that run dorsally along either side of the backbone, in beef it is analogous to the the meat from whence we get ribeyes and strip steaks.

TENDERLOIN: The much, much smaller two strips of meat that run along the ventral side of the spinal cord, farther back on the last 1/3 or the backbone. In beef it is analogous to the meat from whence we get filets.

Every deer I've had to dispatch on the road has been with a .22LR. A few went down with minor twitching, but some started crappie floppin' something fierce and I've had to shoot 'em a few more times to calm 'em down. Probably didn't have to, but I hate just standing around watching such a magnificent critter jumping around like a brain-shot cat.

Backstrap runs along the backbone or spine of the deer.

Tenderloins are on the belly side of the backbone or spine.
