350 yd. pronghorn... she hasn't missed in 10 years

We headed out this morning with our 6yr. old daughter to do some goat scouting. We checked all the places I had seen them in the last 3 weeks and they were nowhere to be seen. After about 2 hrs. searching, we stopped ona hilltop and glassed for a few minutes. A mile and a half away I spot ten little spots in a field with some bales and I hand the glass to my wife to check them out, we are both quite sure at this point that they are goats, so we decide to go two miles down and a quarter mile in fro the road and hike up on a hill and hope for a shot down into the hay field, so once we near our location we get our gear together so the three of us hike up the hill and start belly crawling up to the edge, after a little belly work we are in position, my wife gets behind the rifle and I range the lead doe at about 350 yds.I dial in the elevation and windage ( I might add we were dealing with 20-30 mile per hour 10 o'clock winds) I then set up the video camera and get the tape rolling. Now we are all ready and I tell her to "take the shot whenever you are ready". Ten seconds later the bullets inthe air and it meets it's mark for a clean kill. Were going to be eating good this winter....anyway, had to share my excitement. My wife has been hunting with me for 10 years and she hasn't missed a deer in ten years. This was her first goat, but I'm sure there will be many more harvested in the future all the best in your hunting season!

P.S. I haven't harvested mine yet, was all set up on one at 500 yds. this evening and dialing in when some hunters drive up and open fire shooting from on the main road :mad: Oh well, I was hoping for a 700 plus yd shot, which I couldn't have made today as I am not confident with over 500 yd shots with these winds. Hope things calm down during the week maybe I'll get out, will keep you posted on how it goes


practicing at 1,000 yds. two days ago. The bullets were hanging pretty close to the center of the target......





My wife and her doe and my six year old daughter...........
