Re: Fly leftovers

I recall, years ago, @ a BR match my last shot was at a fly.

The flier was more than an inch from the group. I lost the small group and 100 yd aggregate but the blood & splatter was on the target. Was more than worth it.

Good shooting and yep that shot counts as LRH considering the size of the target. BTW, which shoulder did you hit behind or was it the much sought after 'full body shot? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Fly leftovers

That looks like a gut shot to me.

Re: Fly leftovers

Is baiting flies unethical? I am going to smear something on my target backing to draw them in, looks like fun.

We rubbed a piece of white paper with old hambuger meat.

By the time we got back to the benches, it had moving targets.

Re: Fly leftovers

Nice shooting GG !!!Just a couple of questions for you.

Bucks or Does ?
Were they Trophy class or Managment Flies ?
Did the bullets perform well as tested in media?
Were the shots ethical for the given distance and conditions?
Is baiting allowed in Utah.( considered unethical in some states)
Did you go for the classic high shoulder shot?
Did you call your head shots in advance ?
What is the legal bag limit in Utah ?
Were you in a Draw Unit or over the counter tags ?
How long does the season last? (9 days like Deer?)
Do you need a recomendation for a good Taxidermist ?
Did the shot qualify you for the FHA long range club?
No pics with info on white paper??????

Looks like she's going to be a shooter !!! RHB

Re: Fly leftovers

Good shootin' without a doubt!! Nice that he left a little residue so that you've got some solid evidence as well.

Got one ?. Why did you divide the 200 yd group by 2 to get .190? Just curious. I'm sure there is a method behind the madness [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img].
