Re: 941/935/813 yard antelope
Thanks for the replies guys, sorry about the no pics. I'm not much of a picture taker in the first place and we were just having too much fun to think about it!
BH Hunter, I was using a swarovski range finder. When ranging at those distances I normally mount mine on my tripod or in a pinch use shooting sticks. You really have to get them steady to get accurate readings. I will also take a dozen or more (sometimes many more) readings, throw out the ones that are obviously wrong and eventually a trend will develop where the same yardage within 4 or 5 yards starts showing up pretty consistently. Accurate ranging is such a critical part of of shooting at those ranges. On antelope size critters a +/- 25 yard error can easily turn into a miss. My Swaro will range out to 1700 to 2000 yards in most conditions, just keep it really steady and take a lot of readings.
