    The link is https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dist...re/id430378257

    There is also a PRO version ($1.99 - one dollar and 99 cents) that does not have ads. [https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dist...94886286?mt=8]

    Of particular note, as is probably obvious, you need the satelite map, Internet access, and signal. Frankly, if you could actually identify the target location from "sky view" this would be far and away the least expensive way to measure ELR line-of-sight distances. I have no idea how often remote area "maps" are updated but seems they must be quite often as the poster appears to have been able to "see" his just-placed target after just the short time it took to get back to his shooting point. This alone is well worth a complete, very detailed thread. Please provide same - separate thread.

    Thanks guys, I use the br2 g7 rangefinder which depending on target and conditions will do 2000ish pretty consistent but not much more. This will give me an option to verify what I'm using and stretch it a bit farther out.

    My terrapin just picked up 3990 yards on the horizon. Sounds like I need to attempt that shot soon

    this is late just got to read it but that is some awesome shooting!
    Its kinda funny not to long ago on this site had a guy basically tell my riffle had mediocre components, the funny thing is its about the same component list as yours except for a shilen match barrel. I guess opinions vary!!

    congratulations!

    One thing I've found out is it doesn't matter what brand of kit you use. If it works it works. It's usually the Indian not the arrow so I wouldn't worry about someone telling you your kit is sub par or even average! Go out and shoot! Only you will determine if your rifle shoots average or great
