I obviously have shot at this tree rat before, but thought I had missed. This time the pellet went in his left ear canal and came out about 1/8 inch below his right ear.



Note that his bushy tail ain't so bushy. It was shot off!

What were you aiming at, if you shot his tail off?

When I shot his tail off, he was facing me sitting on the ground eating a seed. I aimed between his eyes and overestimated the range so I shot a little high. The pellet went over his head and his tail was directly behind his head.

You must mean, you underestimated the range...nt

If he was at 40 yards, I needed to hold over 2 mildots. If I estimated 50 yards, I held over 4 mildots, so I shot 2 mildots too high, going over his head.
