The zoom out was great, really shows how incredible the shot was.

Congrats Shawn, very well done.



Stealing credit, reminds me of a funny story. Many years ago, I was picking up something at a gun/tackle store and overheard the hangout guys talking about a big salmon just caught that morning. Bonehead describes everything exactly except says he caught it. I start to laugh and say "You phoney bast***, Pinky caught that salmon and I was the guy who held the net for him". Everyone laughed him right out of the store.

Cheers,
Rob

I am in fact the guy who took the shot with my 338 Edge. The other voice you hear is my friend Travis Reggear who was spotting for me. Mr "dirty booger" as I've come to call him. I shot another deer from that same spot this last year at 953 yards the other direction up the canyon with almost the same results. Unfortunately I was not able to get it on video due to lighting conditions.

Keep an eye on the Nightforce optics website over the next few weeks they are preparing to put up a streaming video loop with a bunch of long range shots of targets and hunting shots. I made the video for them and did most of the shooting. Mt 1018 yard black bear shot will be on there.

Hey Shawn

Have you fellas considered making a video that centered on all the things leading up to the actual shot especially doping the wind. Would be very interesting to watch the process from start to finish even if you missed. You must have a technique work out that works well for you.
