Thanks! I'll try to make a super long story as short as I can and include the major highlights. I spotted him come out of a creek bottom 425 yards from my position on an old pond dam. After maybe 15 minutes it appeared he clearly wasn't going to come in my direction, so I settled in as he was broadside, held the top of the bottom post of the duplex reticle right at high shoulder and let it rip. He went right down but regained his feet and slowly ran straight ahead 100 yards toward the wood line and nose dived near the fence. I gave him 45 minutes before going to check him out, but as I got to within 80 yards, he got up again and made his way into the brush about 30 yards. I was a bit surprised, though decided not to push him and go back the next morning. It was a long sleepless night. I found him within 5 minutes of my search the next morning. He didn't go much further from the last place I had eyes on him. My cousin came to assist in the recovery and we back tracked the scenario. With a photo I took of him before I shot, we were able to find where he had been standing, found blood at the impact location, then it was easy to follow the blood trail to the fence where he'd crashed. We had a couple inches of snow on the ground. I ranged it again from the shot location back to the pond dam and got a reading of 421 yards. The bullet struck low and shredded the heart, exiting the opposite shoulder just above his chest and pretty much made him immobile. Surprisingly he went as far as he did, around 180 yards total. Obviously I held lower than I should have and a hold on top of his back would have been better compensation.
