    From the pix and description, I cannot tell if per title a road kill or not?

    I knew that, just hoping you'll elaborate.

    Good shootin.

    FWIW, in my book 500 is long range, give yourself a pat.
    Anything beyond 1/4 mile is LR, anything beyond 1/2 mile is ELR, LOL

    Sounds like the way I hunt coyotes. I range spots ahead of time (cause once they're coming to the call they don't usually allow the time/movement of ranging again) and attempt to remember the landmarks and distances. Holdover reticles work great for this kind of hunting. Great fun.

    Congratulations!
