Re: high country long range deer down

Outstanding. Next year you'll have to be her spotter!

30deg of angle at that range is significant much moreso for someone who's used to shooting on flatland.

In spite of what you'll read everyone misses and being able to quickly correct and put that second shot on target is often the difference between sore feet and a broken heart, and a full freezer.

Congrats to you both.

Great photo and write up! Congrats on all counts! Also, curious on your rifle, load and the software you're running.

Re: high country long range deer down

Wow! Thanks for all the praise everyone. I'm very proud of her. She is a great shot herself. We shoot prairie dogs every summer.
I'm shooting a savage long range hunter in 7mm rem mag. I use 168 gr Bergers. 69 grains of H-1000 and CCI primers. Optics were a vx3 6.5x20 LR. Scope. Leica 1600 range finder and strelok is my ballistic program on my iPhone (works great w/out an incline) . Swarovski spotter. I'm saving for a custom rig. It'll be a while tho. I'm honestly very impressed with my savage. Shoots great! Thanks again everyone! Happy hunting.
