It truly was the last itty bit of time . I had been watching a mountainside that offered shots to 700 or so for nigh on to two weeks with nothing but some slickheads showing themselves during the daylight hours .
Great scenery , but nothing moving [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] as in nothing moving day after day after day , etc . I mean , I am married to this blind and want some payola !
Last day comes , so , I go to my Sunday morning meeting then when home , dress up to play and head for the hills .At this point in time I have decided to take whatever comes along as I have both buck and doe tags left over.( I know , Bill Bailey, but hey , we have a lot of deer tags here [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] )
Asc I approach the " shooting shack " I see that my good friend Bryce White ( of the bar P bar massacre infamy ) is parked at the place to walk to the " shooting shack " . Great ! I thought , company !. , well as I walked to the shack I encountered Bryce coming to see who had driven up.
His face was not what I normally see , he was frowning and very unhappy looking. Bryce , whats wrong ?
Jim, "it's your fault" he said , "you got me started on this long range shooting " . Puzzled , I asked , what do you mean?, it's my fault ?
Well, he said , that coon shouldn't come out to eat your corn while I was watching cause I have been her er for hours and haven't seen doodly to shoot . So , I am sorry for messing up your spot with a lot of blood .
Bryce made a great shot at 335 on a coon and he was apologizing to me ! I am sorry , I didn't get the pix of his coon hosted before I made this post . But remember this ! Savage 7mm a little trigger work ( as much as allowed ) Nosler bt , 5 moa , dead coon .
I,m sorry Jim , he said , I've probably ruined your chances for a long range shot because of all that blood from that coon .
Bryce , forget about it , I encourage him ,if it's mine I will get it !
Fast forward to dark 30, Bryce , what is that , I don't know he says , turn down the mag , I am practically hollering .
A deer is approaching the feed area and all I can see is the thin white area that lines the legs and belly .
I can't see to make my elev . adjustment, I know what the distance is so , ..................1234, 1234 ,1234, 1234, 4 minutes of angle is what is needed for the distance . So, thats what I do, count the clicks , and dang ! those leupold clicks are positive [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Next day ( too tough to go in the dark , sides , I didn't have to )
