Dog down

I'm going to try and keep this as sort as I can. I just got this rifle at the end of December, a savage 110FCP in 300wm topped with a vortex HRS 6-24. I started working up a load for 215g Bergers last month. I found what works for me and the rifle. Starting them at 2930fps,10fps Es using H1000. Since then I've been working on the drop card.. i have hits on milk jugs at 450,580,932 and 972. Pleased with my results and confident on how it's shooting I decided to go out today and practice in the wind. As I got closer to my shooting area I stopped to check the wind speed,12-15 steady gusting to 20. then slowly started to drive up to the target area to set up. that's when I saw this guy at 200 yards down low between two hill. I shopped and he looked like he was going to run then just continued walked in his direction of travel. Dead away me.. by the time I got my k2000 out he was at around 300.. my rifle was safely tucked under my back seat, with the bipod on the floor... I managed to get the Harris attached and round loaded.. I ranged again.. 350 and still on the move... I lay down and give a whoop... scope was still on 6power:/
I crank it to 18 where and get back on him.. give a whoop!. he stopped and turns right, looking at me..I guess he's close to 400 now, I hold on his flank and send it.. boom. He jumps and turns 180* and runs... try's to any how.. I loose sight of him over a hill.. I standup in time to see him roll up... i then drive up to closer and got out with my little guy and lab to let her work then sent... needless to say I didn't get a chance to practices today..

The next best thing was seeing his look of confusion in response to my excitement of contacting...he was sitting calmly in his seat wathing everything.. he'll be 4 in April.

IMO, he is just imitating his idol.
