    I just finished this little piece for you all

    I had the deer all dialled in at 825 yards and was five seconds from letting the shot go when the deer walked below my line of sight into the next basin.

    So after hauling ass over there I came over the top and spotted him below me.

    After scrambling around to try and find a prone position to fire from, I finally had him at 311 yards.

    This was far closer than I was hoping but I had little choice given his geographical location.

    Anyway you can see the rest for yourself...

    Chalk another one up for the EDGE !

    PS- I had far better music than what I ended up with, but copyright is a bitch !

    That shot was decisive, where did you hit him?

    Thanks for posting

    thank you so much for sharing. i really enjoy seeing footage/pictures from other places around the world. i assume you're filming this yourself which i know makes it a lot more difficult.

    A good job of editing.

    Isn't it just a crying shame when you have to "get closer". :D

    High on the shoulder mate ! Probably the most " decisive on the spot" result for a while .

    Glad you enjoyed it.
