I've actually tried reticle-ranging the dogs, and was able to get within 10% of lasered range so far to 300 yds., but that was on a hot day, in an uncomfortable prone position laying on rocks. Next time i hope to do better. Was using a 6-18x Nikon Buckmasters mil-dot at 18x (2.4 IPHY between dots). I actually measured 3 adult dogs and they all measured 3.5 x 11", tho the Leupold Varmint Hunter reticle uses a height of 7.3" for their sitting-dog rangefinding tool.
good to hear from you.
i can remember t.k. lees name at least 50 years ago. ive always used premier, but they no longer operate in a way suitable to most of us. id be interested in knowing how it works out.
have you ever tried a coincidence rangefinder on dogs? units like barr & stroud, and wild, would be the ticket for those things. not very portable, as they are about 15# and require a tripod. but they work every time in all conditions. accuaracy is excellant. jerry had several units of swedish manufacture. knife co. coated optics, read in meters, excellant condition. as i recall, they read to 10,000 meters. he paid $250 for them. ill send you one out if you like to try out. ernie
