Yep GB, this is straight from the horses mouth, we call railway crossties "sleepers".

Neighbor of ours shot a bull twice with a 30-06 and that sumbuck ran through 3 pastures, jumped 3 fences before crossing the road & jumping the fence into our pasture. Lost him in the woods, another neighbor found him in his field a couple days later, still bleeding from the head & eventually ended it with an elephant gun (he's a big game hunter). First two shots must have hit the sinus cavity & did nothing but pizz off that bull.
That said, I've never put one down - I just can't & make my husband do it.

I do not believe in cheaping out - get the biggest calibre you can find - draw the x, put the muzzle about an inch off that spot and pull the trigger. I use a 375 H&H - face on - it cuts through the brain and spine and drops them right now.

Immediately bleed it out - so that knife better be sharp and substantial.

Saw one on dogs here - my 16 year old guard dog went this way............

I called the vet to the house - she laid down on the lawn because she could barely walk any more and I sat with her - the vet gave her a shot of valium and she relaxed and went to sleep. He set up the IV and I made him let me do it. I pushed the drugs in to her - I told him a real man does not let another man do his dirty work - and cried like a baby as I did it.

Yeah it cost me, but she saved my wife's butt one night when there was an attempted break-in while I was away. Cops are about an hour away - the neighbors were in the yard in about 5 minutes - 8 pickup trucks full of PO'd guys and one lady with a shotgun. The two bad boys did not like the treatment or the worrying the dogs gave them.

They were tied tight with binder twine as well.

Best to all.

I'm not saying it's the way to go, but if you're so inclined...

Behind the ear works pretty quick. I use a 40 caliber because it’s easiest to carry.
