Allow me to clarify... either of those shots would have absolutely hammered a coyote, let alone a big game animal. That's why I was so impressed with those two shots, even though they were "misses". We shoot at 4" clays all the time out to about 600 yds... even with an extremely accurate rifle they are tough to hit beyond 300 yards or so. But, as long as I'm peppering them consistently... with an occasional busted clay... I know I'm inside the boiler room of any critter I care to shoot.
Another thing I truly enjoyed about the video was the way all the technical data was presented in a digestable way. Shawn did a great job presenting data, providing a situational example (often with a diagram), and then teaching how he compensates/corrects. I can see how one of his two day classes would make me a MUCH better field shooter. I'll have to get signed up for one... as soon as the LR rifle is put together.
Thanks again Shawn for a video that I'm sure I'll watch over and over... sorry if it sounded like I was razzing you for missing the rock, my intent was quite the opposite. ~yb
