What time of day do you plan to nail this
1000yd GROUND GRIZZLY?, early a.m.?, middle
of the day?, or earlyp.m.?. Depending on the
time or season of year that you decide to
pursue your quest, MIRAGE, will be the
prevailing factor as to what power[x], you
will need to veiw afforementioned ground
grizzly. Myself, and my Cohorts always try
to get the longer distance victims early on,
in morning, or wait untill evening, when the
mirage isnt as bad, or is not prevalent.
I use a 10x unertl,20xunertl,6xto18xleupold,
6.5xto20xleupold,. One nice thing about the
variable's is that during mid-morning to late
afternoon when the mirage is most prevalent,
you can adjust the power lower to enable to
see thru the "SWIMMING POOL", as it is
sometimes refered to.
You'll be fine with the nightforce, and
its large objective, you will find that
whenever the mirage is bad, the veiw thru
your scope using the higher power's of
magnification, will give you a HEADACHE,
and distort your target. Turning the scope
down to a lower power, won't magnify the
mirage as much, and will enable you to veiw
your target a little bit better.
Crosscreek P.A., is in S.western P.A.,
in washington cty. Lot's of "rolling hill's",
and we still have some farm's to groundhog
hunt,. I had 2 kill's this past season that
were just a little over 700yds, these 2 kill's took 3 shot's apeice, 2 sighter's,
and 1 for the coup-de-grace.
