Found my LRH hunting spot (PICS)

In my state it is very rare to find a setup like I see you guys in Co, MT Idaho have . I found a nice little spot where I can get atleast 50 to 1000 yards hunting and I have found a spot that I can shoot a rock @ 1684 yards . I ran into a guy that said he saw a nice buck just below the pic that has my rifle in it. I didnt get to this spot early enough this morning , two guys beat me there . They left because they said they couldnt shoot that far and I told em I was going to try my luck , they then told me that if I had been 30 minutes early I could have seen 8 does walk around the side of the MTN. I hunted a few hours and the wind started to blow . I have just gotten my rifle and Exbal matched up as far as elevation but I havent been shooting with wind corrections . I decided before I left that I needed to see how I could shoot in this terrain its as close to canyon country as I can get here in the south . I had a 3 mile and hour wind from right to left nearly a full value . I ranged a rather large size rock the Leica said 900 yards Exbal said I needed 1 1/2 MOA windage but by the time I got settled in I noticed the wind had died down a bit so I re checked with my Kestrel and it confirmed that I had 1 1/2 mile and hour wind . So I only dialed .75 MOA got set up checked the anti cant level (good) pre loaded the bipods just a bit and sent one on its way . I watched the impact and it was dead nuts elevation and windage wise . I can only imagine how hooked I will be when I actually take a deer . I found out from the game warden that I can hunt from the opposite side of the bluff . There is deer tracts within 6 feet from my gun and I also spooked some from about 50 yards yesterday evening on the top of the bluff that I shot from , so this means I can relocate and I can hopefully get a long range shot

Note: you cannot see in the pics but there is several openings in the hardwoods that I should be able shoot thru.

    Impressive. You may need a spotter to help you to spot the bullets hitting the rock wall.
    The spotter will be able to see the bullet vapour.

    Nice looking set up, looks very similar to what I have. Best of luck and hope you get a shot opportunity. If you could get somebody to spot for you that would be great.

    Re: Found my LRH hunting spot (PICS)

    Thanks guys for the replies . Most of my hunting buddies will be in a tree stand so I dont really have a spotter during hunting season. I have shawns break and I can spot my shots as close as 500 yards it works very well. The pics dont do it justice , there is little pockets in the hardwoods

    I know it may sound crazy but I would rather have a doe at long range then a buck at close range . I guess I have the LRH bug???

    Thanks.... I can't waite either The only bad thing, is in this area we only have a 2 day hunt left for rifle so I will have to get at it once it starts.
