You shot a cow so soft points are proven effective, is that the point of the post?

I believe it was a crow, but a cow would have definitely added an interesting dynamic.

Yes, crow, sorry, typo.

I'm still a bit confused as to what is now proven and unquestionable.

It must take a lot of stopping power to drop an Irish crow.

After reading a few posts made by our Irish friend and taking his word choices into account, I have a sneaking suspicion he's being facetious. I can appreciate a little sarcastic humor.

I shot a cow once....well actually, a VERY pissed off Charolais bull "cow" that is. With a 30/30 right between the eyes at 20 yards with a soft point bullet.
Old tough old son of a pup went down, then got back up and shook his head.....and then just looked at me. 
Boom...boom.....he goes down for good.

I don't know of anyone else who has ever made such a shot on an owl crow.  Someone should call Guinness!

Where did the Owl crow come from? It was surely a Scotch Crow. For century's the Irish have had a feud with the Scotsmen.

Evidently, there was a little "nest swapping" going on here.

Damn r c, and I thought you were the ultimate guru around here!  Don't tell me you don't know that when shooting frogs on the road you're supposed to take your stainless rifle so it don't rust!
