Randy this was at separate times. As you can tell by the well Oxygenated blood, this Ewe was hit in the lungs. I had switched ammo since I sort of had Hogs on my menu. The Barnes 250gr surely did not disappoint. I had tested these on some water jugs and got the usual Fan blade effect after it opened up. WHen I hit this Ewe she did not jump,, but barely moved. It was a 60yd shot with her turned a perfect broadside. I had waited till she had separated from the heard a little. She simply turned and walked away in the other direction she was facing. The herd was not disturbed which surprised me. But I knew I had hit her. My confirmation came rather shortly afterwards when four other Ewes started looking in the direction she had gone. The Rams busy filling their bellies with corn. The Ewes kept this staring going for a little bit and then suddenly took off. This got the Rams attention and a couple of the other Ewes. Poof,,, They were gone. I approached the feeder and looked in the direction of where she headed. I could not see her from the blind. But as I began to scan my eyes across the area it was easy. There she lay next to a tree. She had taken her last breath. The whole scenario as a whole, was one of the more calm hunts in awhile.

Nicely done, Charles! Great bullet choice. Those XPBs at .454 velocities are mean cat medicine.

That frothy pink blood is a sure sign that your bullet did the right work in the lungs.
