843 yard kill this morning

I was out for a quick morning hunt by my house in western Colorado when I glassed up a group of elk about 1.5 miles from the road. I got my stuff and headed out, it was 2 degrees out so I didn't stop much for breathers. I got to a knob where I wanted to take the shot and set up my gear. I ranged a cow multiple times at 843 yards with my G7Br2 and it gave me 15.4 MOA correction for my 300 DAKOTA shooting the 230 grain berger OTM. I applied the correction, held for no wind. The cow was at a frontal shot so I aimed right where her neck came in to her chest. After the shot I watched the impact and she went tumbling! The bullet struck her In the neck and event in to her chest cavity. Not bad for a cold bore shot at single digits! Coolest shot I have made.

Congrats! That's a good shot! Every time I go out to try to get a long range shot on game, I end up finding one at 300 yards or so haha. Gonna try to get a long range poke on an elk in NM next year so maybe it will work out.

I know what you mean! It seems to be my plague also. The stars aligned on this hunt, I have been trying to brake the 800 mark for over a year on a big game animal.
