I hunted the river bed, and it's like shooting down a 150 yard wide, 1-1/2 mile long bowling alley. I had range markers (small stacks of drift wood) set up at 2, and 300 yards. I shot four coyotes, the two longest at 270 and 323 yards. The 270 yard shot is low, I had the CDS dialed at 200, not realizing that he was 70 yards beyond the marker. It happened quick and I knew he was between my 200 and 300 yard markers. The shot was low, 3" or so, which makes sense. The 323 yard shot was right on the money. By the marker, I knew he was very close to 300, spun the dial 10 audible clicks from 2 and let it go. This with great ammo, a fantastic gun.....it works.

They are great shooters, you'll want to replace the trigger and go with an optic of equal quality.

Good work! Were you calling them or just waiting for targets of opportunity?

Opportunity. I have called, using a Fox pro. Works great, but it's usually one and done for some reason. I lay prone, in grass that I trim down. In full camo, only thing sticking up is my barrel and camo cap. It's awesome.
