Yes that's what I thought you meant about the dog. I just had a chuckle thinking about a dog looking through a spotter calling wind

    Nice read and nice shot. I shoot the Hornady 162 gr. AMAX in my 7MM Remington Magnum. I have only shot Woodchucks with it to date and terminal results were horrific! I hope it performs as your Berger when shot at Whitetails from distance. Thanks for sharing.

    I have used the 162 a-max a bit, they give very similar results to the berger on Red deer (a little bit bigger than a whitetail). You will like how they perform, but don't use them at too short a distance. I use 160 accubonds inside 300 yds and the berger or a-max past 300 yds.

    I have had 1 wirehair and 5german shorthaired pointers. Wonderful dogs. Great hog by the way.

    Long range dogs are of the longrangeus sniperus veriety and are bred for long range spotting, here is an example at work:
