    Great shot. That's a big Javelina what did he weigh 70-80lbs?

    Not a very big target at that range though!

    Thanks. Yeah he was one of the biggest I've ever seen. The biggest I've ever killed for sure. I don't have a scale so I didnt get to weigh him.

    I've seen a hell of a lot of Javelina, and that's certainly one of the three largest. Again, congrats!

    Thanks! Yeah I'm glad we got it on video. Not my longest kill but one of the best because like you said it's a smaller target especially at that range. I was originally going for a coyote at 600 but he left before I could dial my scope in, then this guy walks out 1 minute later. Lol

    Ha! I had one of those days myself today. Went and set up for a long range shot on a deer who never showed up and instead killed a whopper of a bobcat .. . Gotta love Texas!gun)

    That's too awesome! I saw one about 600yards on our set up but he didn't stick around long enough. Texas is pretty awesome that's why I live here hahaha. You never know what's going to surprise you. Glad you got him, bobcats are always a great trophy!
