Also(ref the wind) anyone can get lucky once in a while. Did he mention how many misses he had before he connected? Or his hit ratio? That distance is very doable.

Oh man what a shot. The way we hunt prairie dogs is we get a bunch of tractors and seeds and make a BIG food plot. We then set up our game cams and hope for the best. I have been going after a big prairie dog I call Theodore but I still haven't gotten a shot. Gonna set up the treestands this weekend and try to grunt/ rattle him into gun range.

He must have one of those rifle and bullets with guidance system.

Re: My friend is full of

Not sure about your friend, but just last week on an afternoon break from hunting deer and antelope in Wyoming, a few of us shot a few dozen PD's shot at that range and further. If it was really a 50 MPH I'd say it would be very tough, but even in a stiff wind it's not that hard to walk the bullet in with an AR and decent optics. Longest kill during our session with a 6.5x284 was 787 yards with a 7 MPH crosswind.

Re: My friend is full of

This is one of my all time favorites; a gopher shot at 1000 yards ...
