It was a good day shooting pd's
We had a late start as I had a ministry "ox in the ditch," but once we got going, it turned in to a wonderful day.
No 1K+ dogs, as my longest kill of the day was under 800 yards.
Mirage was high, and then the winds picked up.
Glenn will sometimes get a sour stomach from long-term glassing, and solves that issue with Dramamine....but he forgot to bring it. We were in an area where shots beyond 750 yards are not possible, because of terrain. He wanted me to kill some dogs with his 22 Creed. Oh, did I have some fun-It is kind of nice to shoot other folks guns. Since he was sick at his stomach, I cleaned up that area pretty good to just under 700 yards. After another unexpected "visit," we moved to another area.
I wanted to look at a fairly narrow shooting area on each side of the two-track, that doesn't get hit to hard. Since his stomach wasn't quite back to normal, I pulled out the 223 Remington HSP with distances primarily at 350ish yards and under the slaughter began. I took out 30+ dogs, and most were one and done. Glenn started feeling better, and we moved further east and topped a rise and then he went to work with his 22 Creed XP-100. He got on a roll too. There were some great aerobatics and red mist moments. Spotting is a lot of fun. At this spot we took dogs out to just beyond 500 yards. Glenn did most of the shooting. We had a small rain storm come through, and got in the truck and waited it out. Then we went to the last area, with Glenn shooting again. The wind had picked up even more, so most shots were under 400 yards. Glenn had enough time on glass after awhile, and I shot up the remaining rounds he had, and then I pulled out the 223 HSP again, and shot until the area was devoid of dogs coming out. With wind pick up in speed combined, plus it gusting my kill percentage went down some, but most shots in the 250ish and under were one and done. We both had a great time. We didn't take pictures of the specialty pistols, but I did video a couple of his close kills. I will show you some pictures of both SP's later.
