Do you just follow them around until the dart falls off/out so you can retrieve it?

10ml. LA is to thinck anyway.
10ml of drax cures it right up.

I darted a bred heifer with 10 ml of la 300. Now she has a huge lump on her neck. Bigger than a softball. Never had that bad of a reaction before.

No, usually I'll find them later. If not it's only a 1/2" needle and they are aluminum. B&G

We've got the pump up air rifle type, works good for it's intended purpose.

I've never used Draxxin, but have had good response using Mictil in ours for pinkeye treatment. Anyone compared both Micotil and Draxxin first-hand?

Also, I've yet to see any darts bigger than 10cc. Are there any bigger ones out there?

Never used LA in a dart gun because the dosage rates are so high, but we've had some pretty nice lumps from standard injections. They'll go away with time, and it bothers you a lot more than it does them.

I think we have fewer cases when using larger diameter needles (14/16 ga), I assume it causes less "turbulence" as the fluid exits the needle with less velocity. I've also noticed the same thing with Alpha 7.

I'll do all sorts of deadly sh! t but using Mictill won't be one of them.
I get to much on me and stuck to much.

Gotta die of something!

I'll admit it's a little unnerving loading the darts with it.

Talked to one of the local vets today, she's worried Draxxin is getting overused in dart guns and it's going to lose its' potency quickly.

If the animal is that large I won't use LA I usually use Draxxin. A Mature cow 10cc's of Draxxcin will normally fix what ales her.
