I got invited to my friend's ranch for a doe hunt using my air rifle. I have video and will post it after I get back home.

I'm jealous! I've often planned that trip myself, but alas! My early season starts on the 9th, but I have to use a firearm, darn it.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Congrats!

Good shooting, and great image.

I too am jealous. I have three big bore air rifles that will easily take down a deer at a reasonable distance, and a couple others that with careful shot placement would also take down a deer. Alas, not in California unless I pay for a hunt on private land to hunt introduced deer, goats, sheep or piggies. Pshaw.

Thanks everyone.
150gr BBT @ 825fps
Shot was 80yds from a 16ft tower.
Deer was facing me with head down.
Shot entered the neck and went into the chest cavity. Going through one lung and the heart, exiting the lower chest.
Deer ran 40yds.

I normally don't do video's of me hunting but thought this was a special hunt for me.

Thank you for sharing! Great video and awesome shooting. Shooting from up high like you did must have its own set of challenges. I’m used to shooting up hill but my distances are short and fixed,  and I’m dialed in. But shooting down at a critter out to 80 yards has got to be tough.

I appreciate your respect for the deer and the fact you got a little emotional. That’s all good, and you have right to be proud to have made a kill with your very own homemade air rifle. I’d have gotten emotional too.

Good job!
