Having the hunt on video is the way to go! That's awesome.

Re: 670 yard Mule Deer

Great job all the way around, Congrats!

I've chukar hunted most of Idaho and all I could think of during the first minute of the video was, "Damn that's going to be an all day and half the night job just to get over there and get the first load of meat out". HA!

Re: 670 yard Mule Deer

Yeah, the pack out was worse than I thought it would be! But the pain lessens with every passing day

For those of you who wondering about the camera, I was using a JVC Camcorder (Model No: GZ-HM35BU). It's not an expensive camcorder, but it is very small and light, which is why I am willing to pack it all over creation! It has a 40x optical zoom, which allows for some longer range recording. Of course, the camera was mounted on a tripod.

That's some amazing video quality at that range without specialized telephoto equipment.

I made my first Idaho chukar hunt when I was 40 years old. I'm getting a knee and ankle overhauled this month so I may be able to make one more... .

Congrats again.

Wildrose - Idaho chukar country is tough no matter how young you are! If you can pull it off after a knee and ankle overhaul, then you are an animal! Hells Canyon is aptly named

Re: 670 yard Mule Deer

hey what is your take on your monarch scope, do you think it has repeatable accurate adjustments? I have a 4-16 monarch and I believe mine is repeatable for the most part I havent done extensive testing with it yet, I was curious what your experience with yours has been.
