i have killed a few trees myself - but my favorite was a friend who swung on a grouse - fired and only to watch the unscathed grouse escape not knowing how he could have missed the easy shot - as he was looking after the grouse - the top of the tree that took the charge fell on him.


the woods need thinning away and at least you had a nice day to tour "God's Country" as those pottering folks like to say.

I've done a lot of "shotgun brush-hogging" myself but the most memorable was the 1" silver birch sapling that sacrificed itself by jumping between my speeding 150 grain .270 bullet and the 7 point buck's heart.

I even saved the 9" section of the sapling and plan to mount it on a nice walnut plaque up on the wall where my antlers are proudly displayed.

Dean,

This hangs in my gun room.

.....Jeff, my cousin Tim did that with his bow but on a smaller sapling. The arrow split the sapling and went almost all the way through but hung up on the fletching.

While hunting Eland in Africa I had a similar experience. I fired a shot with my 375 H&H at an Eland which should have fallen to the ground immediately. The PH, trackers and I looked for over an hour for blood and hair or any evidence of a hit with negative results. We walked back to where I was standing and tried to recreate the shot. It was then that one of the trackers discovered a 375 caliber hole through the only small tree that was standing between me and the Eland. A few days later I had another chance and killed one without help from intervening brush.
