Re: 1263 Yard Rockchuck

Rifleshooter: If by "mad" you mean "crazy", yeah he might be crazy but he knew what he was in for. Someone descibed him as "young and energetic". I think that's pretty accurate! And, yeah, we're blessed with some great country to hunt but even here its sometimes difficult to find places to shoot that far.

Re: 1263 Yard Rockchuck

Congratulations on a heck of a shot. Memories like the ones you got are worth more than anything in my opinion. Great job and great story.

tt35 please dont take the mad bit the wrong way over here it would be seen as someone realy keen in what they are doing,i would probably do the same thing after pulling a shot of like that so if i have put it in the wrong context i apologise

Not at all, rifleshooter. Yeah, he was pretty determined. Without "carcass in hand", it could have been just wishful thinking. Gus does some taxidermy as well so he also wanted it for a mount. Not because the animal was a trophy but because the SHOT was a trophy! Gus mounted Ben's rockchuck that they took together at 1044 yards last year. It was the first 1000+ yard shot any of us had made. Gus wanted to have his own reminder of the shot.
