Yote Down! 1100 plus

I have been watching a few yotes that stay in the huge wheat fields on very flat ground. There is hardly anyway to get closer. If you even stop on the roads they hightail it. Putting on a sneak is tough. It is so flat that even a small dip in the field will hide them, plus the wheat stubble is 10 to 12" high making prone shots tough. You try calling and they are gone! This morning at daybreak I glassed up a pair mousing. I found a small mound by the road to get me up above the stubble and went prone. First order of buisness was getting a range. I piled a sand bag and my redtac rear bag to rest the Vectronix PLRF10 on. The yote on the right was most visable so I went for him. First range came back at 1130 yards. I already had my shooter program up so I entered the data, Baro 25.89,, temp 42,, Humidity 35%,, spin drift on, Coriolis on, Lat. 46*,, Azmuth 230* Then punched up the solution page. Then I took a quick wind reading, very light 2 mph at 9:00, Now for a re-range to see if he had moved. 1125, 1126, 1126. lift up a bit and over his back,, no reading. Ok, 1126 it is. This was tough, all that was showing was his body as the stubble was hiding the legs completely. He was 1/4 facing me as I dialid in 28.25 MOA up and 1.75 left. As I got on him I quickly checked paralax and level, then let out a Whoop!! He froze looking my way. Exhale .... hold.... and the trigger broke. I was right back on him as he stood looking toward my driection. The 1 1/2 second flight time seemed like it took a couple minutes. Then he Jumped straight in the air about 3' and fell as he landed. He got up a trotted off a bit looking from side to side and yelping like crazy, then went out of sight. Did I get him? or did he just go into a low spot??

I got up and glassed but nothing in sight. I marked the last place I saw him with some distant land marks. I gathered up my stuff and put it in the truck and headed out his way. When I got within about 100 yards I spotted him. The morning sun helped light him up in the yellow field.

The 300 gr Berger OTM from my .338 Lapua had found the yote. A small female, but a prise to me as this was my farthest yote to date.

Great shooting. I enjoyed the story. 1130 yards quite an accomplishment.

Re: Yote Down! 1100 plus

What a great shot, Broz! Man...

That Vectronix is a big part what let you do that, wouldn't you say? I wish I has something that could range that accurately in those flat conditions with small body 1/2 covered. Small beam divergence...small beam divergence...

You should PM Eric Stecker here and give him the link to this story. He enjoys stories like this and you might get a t-shirt from him if you haven't already gotten a few. Wink...wink.
