WOW!! 200 yards with a .22 MAG. Impressive. I guess a 1000 yard shot on a deer with a 300 MAG is an ethical shot now.

I don't see any bullet damage on the carcass. Did you hit it in the head?!

If the truth must be known, at that range, the bullet simply stuck the beast and bounced off its skull, yet impacted with enough force to render the bird unconscious. When I arrived at the scene of the deed, the bird was just opening its eyes, just in time to see my boot land on it's neck and administer the coup-de-gras. Not visible in the picture is a rather large bruise, just above the birds eye, that stands as proof of the fine shot.
