Some people might remember that about a 8 months ago we all got into a fairly heated discussion about whether big bullets kill animals any better than small bullets do.
Well, I've decided to conduct a little study to see what we can learn about those elusive "bang-flop" kills.
I will post a list of questions, and it would be great if everyone could answer the questions as accurately as possible for all the whitetail deer you and your hunting party have taken this year.
The more data points we have, the better this data will be, so get the data from your friends'/ relatives' kills and post that too.
After we get a bunch of responses, (hopefully a few hundred) I will tally up the data, do some statistics, and share the results and pretty graphs with everyone.
we should be able to answer questions like:
-What % of .22-250 shots are bang-flop kills?
-What % of .45-70 shots are bang flop kills?
-How does range effect the distance ran after the shot?
-What major organs produce bang flop kills when hit?
Finally, since this is an unscientific survey, the respondents will be self-selected. That means that extraordinary kills will be more likely to be reported than normal ones. So to try to balance this out, please report all the kills you can, not just the exciting ones.
This should be pretty cool.
