    ..the video thing with groundhogs is definitely challenging....

    used to be the scenario went like this:

    1. See groundhog
    2. Laser range groundhog
    3. Enter range in Shooter App
    4. Note number of MOA's correction both elevation & windage
    5. Dial in MOA adjustments
    3. Chamber a round
    4. Zoom scope out to find groundhog
    5. Find groundhog
    6. Zoom scope in to center groundhog
    7. Adjust parallax focus
    8. Half a breath......squeeze....


    Now, throw in a video camera into the mix

    1a. Find groundhog in viewfinder
    2b. Zoom finder
    3b. Then start steps above!!!


    AND a big IF....that groundhog doesn't move, or worse yet = goes back into their hole!

    ...the problem I was having yesterday was the setting sun.......I wanted to hunt that side of the ridge, but next time I will go back to the other side!
