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.

    He must miss by a long ways when the wind ain't blowin.

    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.

    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.

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

    NOTE: Jeff (BROZ) was spotting for Joe!
