Took many good sized Kentucky bucks and does using an IAI Javalina longslide 10mm. All deer were taken from a tree stand in mixed cover woods and within 3yds to 25yds. Gun preferred Hornady's full power 185gr XTP, deer never went more than a few steps after being shot. Most were head/neck shots but a couple did go broadside thru both shoulders & heart/lungs.
Only 1 doe needed a second shot and that was because she was standing almost directly below my stand and I forgot that I needed to aim low because of the angle and my first shot went right thru her ear. Doe barely flinched, looked around for where the sound came from before I put the second shot in her neck.
Always looked at handgun hunting as the same yardage and shot restrictions as bow hunting.
