Both rifles being now empty, the remaining big buck gets off scot-free, and vanishes with his smaller companions long ere I can reload. Numerous and loud are the expressions of delight indulged in by the shikarees at our good luck. But a shadow of doubt arises in their minds as to whether they will be able to reach the beasts in time to bleed them before life is extinct, as, being good Mohammedans, without this ceremony being duly performed the meat will be useless to them. Hatha and Sultana at... once start off down the gully to look after the second buck, whilst Gamoo and I with some difficulty A WASTED SHOT. 239 clamber after the first. We find him still alive, but he has fallen so far into the cleft that we have considerable trouble in getting at him to give him the coup de grdce. On examining the carcass, I found that my first shot must have inflicted a mortal wound. Had I known this I might in all probability have killed the third big fellow with the bullet I had wasted in firing a second shot at the first ; for unless some large bone is broken, inarkhor, like ibex, when shot at, and even if mortally wounded, very often move off without increasing their pace from a walk.
