I took my 2 boys out and setup at the edge of some timber overlooking a cow pasture. To make a long story short, the wind changed so I turned around to see if anything would come in behind us and it did. I saw some deer moving figured that they were being pushed. A pair came in behind us at about 30 ft. I couldn't quite dirty Harry it with my 44 mag quick enough. But I believe it is extremely possible.
