Re: 803 yard ram pics

Thanks guys.

We were at an elevation of 3434. This unit is in the lowest area in Utah.

Pretty quick thinking GG. Mind if I use that one?

Go right ahead! It has always helped me out! No, seriously, I wanted nothing more in the world to go down and see that ram on the ground but duty called.



THis ram was way past his prime. In most other units in Utah, they have no teeth left at 11 years old because of the tougher vegetation that they eat. This unit has nothing but soft grass in it so they die only from cats and beating the snot out of each other. This guy had way more damage than normal though. He must have loved to fight.

Really nice hunt. Congratulations to her.

It was a hunt that I wanted to do when I was in Utah but never drew out.

Could you post a picture of the rifle set up prior to the shot. I have become very interested in good way to set up a gun rest

GG,

What scope is on the 6.5-284? I take it the Slope Doper works the same as a ACI? I ask because I think something of that nature will be my next purchase.

It is a Leupold 8.5-25x50 LRT.

Yes, the Slope Doper works exactly the same way as the ACI but is not attached to the gun. It is hand held and you sight down the top of it to the target and take a reading. They are inexpensive and work great. We could not have taken this ram on the first shot without the ability to figure the angle.
