Congrats!! I like the fishing pole idea, did you just "snag" him w/ a trebble hook? Is that some sort of back pack you wear? Do you use some sort of rest for that hand cannon, looks really heavy to be shooting offhand?
Yes, the treble hooks on the lures snagged the hair and held tight without doing any damage to the fur.
That is a pack made by Dave at Quiet Hide Holsters. It has a gun compartment, pouch for a water bladder and a compartment for my decoy and other things. Dave has a built in ammo 'belt' too.
I use shooting sticks here in WI unless they don't cooperate and come in from another direction, then I shoot off hand.
The gun weighs 7lbs as is. For shooting silhouettes I have a 7mmbr 10" barrel with a smaller forend and open sites.
Out west I use a Rock SOPMOD bipod with a Seekins base.
