Chas1, It was an uphill 12 degree shot. The trickiest part was getting the gun on the animal with the down slope we were on.
I used a harris bipod the 12-23 inch model, and had the legs extended all the way to 23". The butt end of the gun was briskly packed into the snow so I could get the deer into the scope, this didn't allow for much of my shoulder to be in the butstock, and was a bit ackward with my feet above my head as my body pointed downhill.
This was the first animal I harvested with the Huskemaw scope
. The range finder gave a reading of 826 yards. I used the angle conversions (taped on scope bell)to find my multiplier and came up with the equivlant of a 800 yard dope. So that is what I dialed the scope to.
