1005 yrd wiley (not a head shot)
Me and Brother was hunting wiley yesterday when after 4 unsuccesful spots we was on our next to last spot.
Brother was screaming on the sceery cotton tail call
when out of no where, there he is (Wiley) at 197
yrds he gets the shot since he spotted him, the 7mm flattend him (after a tail spin)behind the shoulder.
Brother started calling again (why not) we seen nothing else so we stood up and started glassing when we spotted 3 wileys going kind of away and to the right at 1200 yrds well we set up and one wiley laid down at 1240 yrds I turned the scope and held about 3' left (for wind)
and told bro to watch carefully
I unleashed the 300 rum and it hit just to the right of wiley,he started streaking out of there, well the other
two was swinging a big circle at about 1100 yrds.
one of them stopped and it was brothers turn,he left the 7mm loose and hit right also (about a foot)
well wiley came to 1014 yrds (a lot closer than 1240)
I cranked the turrent,held about 5' for wind and let the 168 berger out the stack at 3300 fps,I said what happened?
He said! nice shot dude, he dropped like you hit him in the head [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] We ranged him several times while he was laying there (we could just see his white belly) one was 1015 one was 1008 and one was 1005 so we called it 1005 yrd
Ok he said,we leave our guns here you get your 1005 dog I will get my 197 dog and will come back for the guns and get the truck, you meet me way down at the fence line. The dog was a big male, the berger went in between the shoulders
and came out the ribs (I guess he turned during flight time
because he was brood sided when I shot and brother did not notice him turning)
Ok,I will stop now, I did want a 1000 yrd plus wiley this year and it happened. Was that a bad thing to want?
The best things in life cannot be seen or touched!
They must be felt with the heart.
