Where do you place a quartering away shot on a crock? Just curious. That looks like a big one, how long was it, any idea how much it weighed?

Nope, not your eyes, it was a bank shot, off the water.

You just need to imagine the golf ball sized brain and where it would be located at a different angle! Hard to explain in words but sometimes you don't always get the angle you want. We didn't get a weight on him but he was 13.5ft with a portion of his tail missing!!

Bearbait1, I agree with you. It looks like the bullet hit the water first. However, another possibility is that a "chunk" flew off the crock and hit the water. The reason I'm speculating this is the "splash" is too far forward of where I thought the crock's brain would be. But then I've never shot a crock, just looked at pictures.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
