Well todya was the culmination of my IA deer hunt. Yes I still have tomorrow to go, but today was sweet. Need to explain first. I have been real quite lately about certain things, but I finally got tired of hearing about 400,500 yrds shot, about how fast acertain gun shoot some bullets, and about how great certain bullets are. So lets get down to business. I told Dave on the first day of the hunt since I had a chance to shoot some does at 600 yrds and did not really wanted to do it then, that if the opportunity presented itself again I would take the shot. Well today it did. Around 4:30 I had about four does come out to my left at the end of the field. I range them with my range finder and they were at 605 so I took my Caldwell Magnum Field Pod, set it up, actually had to raise it up so I could shoot out the window. Got that done, and when I sat down on the chair I could not reach the butt of the so I sat on the arm of the chair and was able to put the stock to my shoulder. Turn the CDS dial to 600 yrds, side focus to 600 yrds,put the cross hairs on it, got as steady as I could and pull the trigger, well the rest is history. NO I did not have a shooting bench, with a rear bag,and mechanical front rest that adjust elevation and windage, like some use to take this long shot on deer. Not big one, but what made it so sweet is that it was done without all the mechanical contraptions. Yes the Field pod help but you still have to get behind the gun and move it up down or side ways by hand. The load was the same as the last time and the the bullet was a 302 BOMB. Any way here it is, and I'm thrill. Oh yes I have a witness is CVADAVE.
