I was out by the grain bins and seen a distance yote in the hayfield. I hustled to the house and got my Defiance Custom 300 win built by Dave Young, my Vectronix PLRF10 a sand bag and a couple rounds loaded with 210 Bergers. He was still out there in the mid day sun just looking around. I pulled my Droid X phone out of my pocket, hit the "Shooter" program and entered 10 degrees and 25.63 for station pressure. Then I went prone and set my PLRF10 on top the scope to steady it and ranged the yote at 1008 yards on flat snow covered ground. Punched in the yardage and hit "solution" It gave me "U22.1" and "L 0.5" I dialed them in and got on the yote. I noticed a slight left to right mirage so I held center shoulder then about 8" left to the back of his ribs. Checked the level, took a breath, 1/2 exhale and held. Lightly touched off the 1 lb Jewell and then watched him fold up dead as a hammer... Whoo Hooo!!! My longest poke on a yote to date!!
This was an awesome test for the PLRF10 and the new "Shooter" program. Looks like both worked flawlessly.

awesome shot, my buddy offered to take me yote hunting the other day, but i had prior obligations with the kids. He called me and said that if i would have came i would have had a 1000+yard shot. He won't shoot at anything over 300. I was kinda disappointed, but maybe next time
Congratulations on your yote. I have a feeling you are are gonna cost me a lot of money. Every time you post about that PLRF 10, I get closer to placing an order. I need the ability to range in flat terrain.
I am curious about how you determined the velocity for this shot. Was this simply a velocity given from a chrono or was this a velocity which was determined from actual drops using the Shooter program?
