Default You Call The Shots IX

Weapon:.30-06 w/ Iron Sights
Range:80 yards
Conditions:Morning; Clear
Winds:Heavy 15-18 mph / Left to Right
The Scoop: You have been waiting him out for some time. He was down in a valley bedded and just came up the ravine. There is a stiff wind to think about. It is early morning, so you may havea few more stalk oppurtunities. He is a nice one though.

With Iorn sights and heavy wind........I will hold and try to stalk closer for a better shot. Sorry if I am to conservative for one's liking.

I would pass the shot. My eyes aren't what they used to be.

80 yards on iron sights is pretty difficult I would imagine, I would prolly try to sneak around for a shorter distance shot if at all possible

I would have to pass on that shot. Too far away without a scope.

80 yards with a 30-06? Even with iron sights and some wind, that's a doable shot. I'm pulling the trigger aftermaking aslight adjustment to account for the crosswind. He's down, no doubt.

i'd account for the wind and send one in his direction. I'd be eating well.

That is my story Sunday, the last day of deer season in Kansas exceptI had a 30-30, I passed the shot and have been ?ing myself since. My guy did not stop though he just walked right along a tree line right out of my life.
