I'm not sure if Matt Salm has his pics developed of the 850 yard bull from the same hunt.

Looks like a heck of an uphill shot...what position did you use? Very nice shooting and great pics, I like the X work on them. Congratulations, good looking deer.

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.

Jim, all the more impressive considering the contortionist position you were in. Under ideal conditions ie at a bench for many 800+ yards isn't easy. You should be very proud. Thanks for the writeup explaining angle and position.
