It's impressive enough that he could see it at that distance

What's the power on that scope, you know Tango?

It is either a 5-22 or the 12-42x Nightforce.

Here is a link to the thread there.

That just looks like sheer fun.

Did he take that critter on the first shot?

(What is it, BTW?)

Not sure but I do believe it was not walked in.

Animal is a Prairie Dog.

They board has a yearly meet where a bunch of them go and shoot P dogs for a week each spring.

Reach out... Reach out and touch someone.

Wow!
That should be some kind of a record.

(I got a chuckle out of the Kleenex or handkerchief)

Sonny- P Dogs carry fleas. Fleas that sometimes carry bubonic plague. Remember the Black Death that killed most of Europe? We still have a few cases a year in CO/ UT. I would not pick the filthy little buggers up with rubber gloves on.

Oh yeah...
Forgot about that. Thanks!
Out here we have Ground Squirrels. Same thing about the fleas.
Thank you for the reminder.
