Roy,

I would have made it so for you but it was already like that. .98 is .98 no matter how you look at it.

Pstimac,

When I looked for wind correction I made my best estimate for cross wind just like normal and applyed it to the windage. Then I looked at the terrain and figured that the entire shot would be effected by the wind blowing up the face of the canyon we were shooting across. This face was fairly steep maybe 30 degrees or so. I looked at my wind drift numbers for that distance and figureed a 30 degree wind was worth 1/4 value that gave me 2.00 moa I backed the elevation down that far. As you could see in the video I missed the first shot by 1/2 moa right and high 1/2 moa. I had dialed a little too much windage and not backed the elevation down quite enough. A quick correction from Jr. tuned that right up. Not that I'd have ever taken a shot in conditions like that at that distance at a game animal it would have easly been a good shot on a deer if you were shooting at the crease. I hope that explains it clear enough. That is the clip I use to demonstrate the wind effecting the elevation in the video.

I hope this is not a dumb question. But looking at where you are and where the bear is how do you mark where he was when you shot. Does one person stay on a spotting scope and guide you in?

That is a huge reason to always have a spotter. Spotter, spotting scope and a couple of radios help alot. I have done the same by myself by putting a ribbon I can see up at the shooting position and picking a land mark to line up with. The big key when going it alone is to settle down and take in all the things that will help guide you toward the shot impact site before you leave. I have had to go back to get a second look before. I have even reviewed the video to make sure where I was. Bears are famous for not leaving a good blood trail if any sometime no matter how well you hit them.
