Long distance goat
« on: November 24, 2015, 08:38:14 PM »
The first hunting post in about 6 years.


While I was in New Zealand last week, some of the guys were shooting at goats across the canyon.  The white spot in the middle of the photo below is a cliff face at 882 meters (946 yards).



This is a white goat next to the cliff face at 58X magnification.  Unfortunately when it was hit it rolled down behind the trees to the left, so I didn't get a good after shot photo.



It was hit with a suppressed 308 Win and the 175 grain Lapua Scenar.

The thread title made me think it would be about an ISIS fighter using FaceTime with his loved one back home.
I'm only here for the timeshare presentation

The funny thing is that the guy shooting a 338 Lapua missed it and the guy with the 20" barreled, suppressed 308 Win got the kill.   The shooter matters.

It didn't think to run away when a bullet hit nearby?

Contrary to popular opinion, animals don't know what bullets are.   All it heard was the sonic crack and it wasn't scared of that.

I know that, I just assumed the sonic crack would have scared it off.

It is, the rains came in that evening or else we would have spent the next day shooting them. We had about 20 guns in the cabin ready to shoot all day but the weather got us.
