Re: RETICLE?

Just got back from hauling and placing corn in 4 ideal loacations on our 100 acres.

The Sinnemahoning sportsman club went through 30 Tons of corn "TODAY."
Members vehicals were lined up a long way waiting to get to the corn bins.

The feeding program helps the turkey, deer and elk here in North Central, PA.

What's this have to do with reticles? Not much execpt Most of the guys hauling corn today that I saw and know, are longrange and extreme Longrange hunters.

Steep side hills and Long distance are the order of the day in this area. Closest shooting from my place is 1000 yds out to 3000 yds, "if you can see the hits."

You keep talking about the width of "ONE (1)" line on the R2 retricle.
Put 15 of those lines in a row verticly and 8 on the horizontal plane and most will agree with my statement of not having a clear view of the impact at extended range.
Several shooters have sold their NF with the R2 because of this.

Re: RETICLE?

Darryl,

Was that 8 degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius? [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

I've been feeding some quail here. Yesterday morning, I saw the covey coming towards the front of the house, so I called the dog in the back door and threw some feed out for them. A few minutes later they made their way around the side of the house and found the feast. I spent a few minutes watching them, when out of no where, a hawk swooped in and made a meal out of one of them. [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

It may be a while before they are willing to take another hand out from me.

The fat ones can't run?? That's pretty good.
I like that one.

They don't move at all with the spotters because the impacts are far enough away that even the "thin" ones don't get scared and move. They never hear the impacts of the spotter shots because the bullet lands quite a distance from the animal. We make sure of it.

The only way they run is when someone (not in our group) takes a shot directly at them and didn't count enough lines in their rangfinder scope or didn't have a decent rangefinder to range them correctly and the bullet lands at their feet or just under their belly. They run then.
I've seen people do this and I'm sure you have seen it too.

We do put a lot of corn out and the 8 point I got this past season was a pretty nice North Central mountain buck. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] It wasn't "fat or thin" just healthy looking. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Tim
That was 8 Degrees F. It was 1 degree F this morning.
It is now up to a warm 14 degrees F.
The Hawk got a good meal the way it sounds.

Yes, there are elk in PA. There have been elk here since asbout 1900 when they were brought in from Wyoming.

They have had elk hunts here the last two years now and the herd size warrents hunting them on a drawing. They killed 70 of them this year.

An estimated herd size of 750 in the North central part of the State.

I had 5 Bulls in my yard at once on more then one occasion. They are distructive as hell. Have to put up electric fences to keep them out of the garden and away from the fruit trees.
We are right in the middle of the elk range.
