How do you read the wind on long rang shooting. If on the rang I try to use flags but out in the hunting I try to find something between me and the target. Is this about what you do?

it is really hard to do in the field,,and the main reason to not shoot,,if there isnt any trees or weeds to read from,,mirage is a good indicator,

I'm not a great shooter like Mr. Big, but out west shooting prairie dogs, a 100 yard shoot is very close. I have had several hits around 500 and 600 yards. I use the grass way out there. But out there the wind is like 20 mph all day, witch is a steady thing and its not that bad.
good luck

The greatest thing about P-dog shooting is every shot id different. One year I was shooting them with a 22 mag at 200 yds. with a 20mph wind now that was fun but you are right most of our shots are out there at 500 plus.

shooting pd`s to me would be different,,if you miss judge the wind at 500 you will be tracking a wounded deer,,with pd`s you can spot your miss and adjust and shoot again,,

If you have never done it you should, It is the greatest thing a man my age can do with his pants on or off.

as poor vision as a deer has, you could just walk up to 300 yards and take an easier shot

I have shot several with the 300 RUM at 150 yards, and closer.
Only wanted to shoot it a couple of times though.
Then back to the 204 and 22-250AI

You would love it Mr. Big, the only problem you would have is bringing enough ammo for all the guns you would want to take.
