Successful moose shooting with 22LR

I shot this moose 20 times with my Henry levergun at 50 yards. No tracking at all.

Magazine and calendar pictures are great fun for plinking!

Careful, they'll charge you if you wound them! Better put another one in him!

Har,
I do that, too, mostly for air rifles and archery.
There's lots of animal pictures on the web to download, too.
Check out google images and the archery 3d target manufacturers' web sites.
And if you use a poster making program, they can be made any size.
There's free poster software, too - just do a web search for them.

But thats some good shooting right there. I sometimes use old calendar pages as targets too.
