Definitely a good humane shot. Now, can he do that at 390 head an hour? That's what is required at the large beef slaughter facilities here (using a captive bolt stunner, not a gun). Not sure of the slaughter rate in NZ or Aussie slaughter plants. Of course, I realize this is not at a large facility, just home slaughter.
It was his skill with the knife that impressed me, but also how he kept them razor sharp with a couple of strokes on the steel.
He would make short work of an Elk, and a better job than i did with mine!
BTW, i own a suppressor, does that make me a poacher as well?
This reminds me of the late cow elk I got in the damage hunt. The land owner was watching us. I shot the cow and by the time he road his quad up to the elk, about two minutes it was gutted. Notice he only takes a straight on shot. It's easy to keep a knife sharp if it's sharp to start with.
