Rocky Patel or Monte Cristo?You guys make it so complicated. Mine usually goes like this.
1 Noise wakes me up.
2 I see buck standing in front of me.
3 He is spooky because he thought my snoring was buck grunts.
4 Put crosshair on ribcage and squeeze trigger.
5 Text all my buddies to come help me drag it out of the woods.
6 Drink rest of my coffee from thermos. Smoke cigar while waiting on friends.
See not complicated at all.
I would think your #3 should be #1.1. Ensure it's an animal I want to take
2. Any good way to get closer
3. Acess situation
-time of day. Do I have time to take care of the animal
-are there any other animals in line of fire
- is there a good spot to shoot from, steady, sun glare, some what comfortable
5. Figure solution
6. Set parallax
7. Dial turrets
8. Squeeze the trigger
9. Field dress animal and start packing
Also you might note that when you get to step number 9. You will find out who your friends are.
I know the feeling, i officially turn 85 tomorrow.Yobuck,
You are probably right. I'm getting a little age on me and am easily confused. Actually my number 1 probably should have been. Take a leak so I can then try to decide what to do .
Wow, 85? Congratulations! You da man!I know the feeling, i officially turn 85 tomorrow.
But it is interesting reading all the different opinions.
Especially since so many of the things mentioned arent considered at all by others including me.
Of coarse much of that has to do with the where and how we go about doing it.
And i suppose how much and how long factors in also.
Well fact is that they have been known to hang around while 50 rounds are sent their way.Amusing that you guys have animals that will hang around while you mess with scope settings.
IME ---- take a good position and shoot.
