I literally had this exact thing happen to me this fall. The only differences were, I was shooting a 454Casull, 240gr. XTP?s and it was raining hard. 5 minutes before end of legal shooting light, she came in. I hit her right on the shoulder, at 70yrds. I could see the entrance wound, as she ran past me, unable to use her right front leg. We spent 4hours in the dark looking for her. The rain changed to snow overnight, and any sign she had left from the night before, was covered by 3? of snow by morning. I found her about a week later, when the predators finally found her also. That still eats at me right now, that I couldn?t find her that night. Next year I?m over gunning!!! 475 Linebaugh, 425gr. Cast performance bullets!! I would prefer not to repeat this years folly.
