Just outside London, Ontario. I was out checking trail cams and walking as I have for a few years on my hunting grounds. when the farmer was complaining about some little pest squirrels ripping into the siding,  so out I popped my Scout. with a 90 grain buckshot ball I cast myself,  the 4th shot connected,  the first 3 were withing a couple inches of target,  I smacked him either the back or base of the head,  or crushed his neck,  he was dead in 10 sec. sadly he is stuck up the tree,  and i cannot recover him to verify the hit location. but I lasered the distance at 43m.

 

Best shot of my life so far.

 

Camo Scout,  Stock General Purpose band.

 

I actually was so amazed i called Simple Shot and spoke with them because I was so impressed!!

 

Everyone go buy a Scout!

 

Cheers

Nice shooting...but, only part of the puzzle is the frame...most of it is the shooter's skills!!!

Where I hunt pigeons if you drop one over the river 95% chance you'll never get it bc it's like 10 feet deep

Was the plan to eat it?  Why even shoot at it from that distance?

the plan was to dispatch it for the farmer because it keeps wrecking his siding.

I have to agree with Bruce....I hunt a lot and I am very confident with long range shots, however, I know my limit and stay within it....
If you are going for breaking distance records, you should stay with targets, my friend...

They are good eating, use a target bandset and shoot at his chest and he should come down in a shot or two

I try not to shoot them in places that are difficult o retrieve them...learned how to be patient and pick and choose when to take a shot

I shoot them then go tatical to retrieve, basically throw something casually over a fence then go get said item and throw your game over and retrieve on the way back, ask to do something for money ect.
