A Missed Shot From a .50 BMG Still Kills a Deer

Is it possible to miss a deer and still kill it?

There's no shortage of us who've thought about it. What would it be like to shoot a deer with a large-caliber round?

We're not talking about your standard .30-06 here, or even a .338.  We're not talking about a .444 or a .45-70.

This guy went out to the deer blind with a 30-pound .50 BMG rifle. But even he couldn't have predicted how this hunt would go. Trust me. You will not see this coming.

If you watched to the end of the video, you were probably as shocked as we were. That's right. This guy missed a head shot, but in doing so, somehow managed to suck the eyeballs right out of the deer.

A closer view of the slow-motion replay reveals that you can actually see the eyeballs of the deer leaving its head and flying right to left. The doe promptly died as a result.
