Thanks guys for clearing things up. I would not willful shoot a deer and loose it. I still say I made a good shot just didn't find it. I shot once and it fell. Just some bow got up. Thanks for people being honest and not throwing me under the bus just because we stretched the distance, with which we practice And was comfortable. Will be going back this evening hopeful to so maybe things will work out.

No need for thanks NMS, "not throwing someone under the bus" is not all that difficult. When I read Brent's last post above, for a minute there I thought I may have missed something in TATELAW's post where he contradicted himself.

But then I thought so what? I don't know TATELAW, and I have no reason to think the guy would make things up or change his story in a dishonest way, so even if his posts didn't add up, I would just assume he made an honest mistake and then corrected it.

I guess some people tend to assume the opposite.

Yeah and I tend to believe that assumption says more about the assumeR than those 'falling victim' to the assumption.

W I N D - is a 4 letter word and a variable that is not easily mastered even by the most highly skilled shooters.
A calm windless morning can impress you about today's modern gadgetry and convert you into a true believer while you lick your chops about that next 1000 yd rifle set up.
An errand breeze down range can have you tracking a 3 legged buck over numerous mountain ranges and into the next county while swearing you'll never do that again.

I missed a doe at 310 last year, killed several further since. $hit happens, it's part of the game.

Hate to hear you lost her Luke, but all we can do is try harder the next time.

As for the wind, it couldn't have been a more calm evening. No wind to deal with what so ever.

I'm glad my story was clear to everyone else. The 25-06 I had with me is a rifle that I have killed with at 300 and holdover would be manageable out to 400. I have no idea about other's skills but I feel very comfortable with shots out to that distance without any special equipment. It comes with lots of practice. However, I'm not going past 400 without a tested LR setup. This setup can be a ballistic reticle scope that I have range tested or, preferably, target turrets. The 25-06 has a relatively new scope on it with target turrets but I didn't have time to get comfortable with them before the season like I did with Luke's Sendero. I plan to shoot it a lot using the turrets during the next off season so maybe I can use my own LR rig next season.

It's hard to comment on the wind if you weren't there, except to say it's less of a factor at 600 than 1000.

I am gonna start with this quote although any of your's would do. This forum is to talk about hunting and give props to fellow hunters.It is painfully obvious that you are pissed off at the world and you sit behind your computer lashing out at others. Giving your opinion when it wasn't asked for, as for Luke and Roger they are southern gentleman both refined and eloquent as they defend a position that simply needs no defense! I am gonna say what they wont, apparently they didn't engage in the manner you were hoping........So i hope my saying you are a phuctard. Will make you feel better! Have a nice day! Now GFY!http://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/default/grin.gif

Tatelaw, NMSshooter, I have never taken a trophy whitetail shooting long range, but find it is one hell of a tool for culling does. I just locked up a spot on Hwy 16 very near the big black. I used to hunt the property 15 years ago. I hear the current lease holders have let the does run wild. If yall want to come shoot some does....or a buck if the opportunity arises, yall holler. Do I know yall from the old MDWFP or Bull forums?

Good for you EddyBo. We gotta cull a few here but no LR opportunities just 100-200 yds. Shoot some of those monsters you make.

This and Shotgunworld.com are the only hunting forums I've ever been a member of. I've just gotten back into hunting over the last 5yrs or so. I'd love to come down for a cull hunt. Doesn't your season run longer down there? Ours runs through the end of January up here.

Luke (NMSSHOOTER) shot a doe but she was not found (yet) at the same range with the same rifle Roger shot his deer at.

Reading skills are very handy.


Always the peacemaker.

You going to make it to the MOF forum get together at my place after season? We are going to break out my big cooker and we are going to have a sausage cook off. Everyone is bringing a pack of sausage from their favorite processor. we are going to have judges to determine the best. Also a couple of magnolia record scorers are supposed to be coming to score deer for folks.

Our season here in North MS starts in early November and runs through the end of January if you include the primitive firearm seasons. I was thinking the season started about 2 weeks later down south and ended in mid Feb. I haven't gone to the state website to check for sure.

Good shootin' Tatelaw. I once was taking a ration of sh** from a guy around a campfire for missing a shot at a buck. Then, the oldest and by far most accomplished hunter there spat in the fire and said "if you ain't never missed a shot, you either haven't hunted much or ain't tryin' hard enough."



Smoke, you can't reason with a dhimmicrap. He's a "victim" of the publik skool "look and guess" reading method. He guessed. If some rich people had had more money lifted from them and thrown at his skool he likely could read better.

I am proud I am not the only one thought the story read complete and no contradictions. I thought that since I was there and knew the story I was reading between the lines. I guess us southern rednecks can read correctly after all.
Thanks for the comments

We got 2 more on the 17th. Mine was 480 yards and Rogers was 220. He shot first then mine stopped at 480 just a little to long for her own good. Both of these was DRT. Roger shot his with his new 257 weatherby and I shot mine with my 7rm sendero.
