Ok, i know we are all without a doubt the best hunters in our county, we never miss, it's that simple. But since it's raining cats and dogs and blowing 30mph, i'll share this. This happened years ago but i'll always remember it. I have always been able to pretty well range my shots by just looking but as i got older i found out i wasn't doing so good anymore, and as much as i hated to i got a rangefinder. Like many/most hunters if you get a rangefinder for the first time you start ranging everything in sight. So the next time i went out coyote hunting i set up and called a few times and since nothing came in after about an hour i started to range the area, i had been coming here for years and done pretty well but not today. So here i am ranging everything to see how close i was to being right over the years i had been guessing at it. I was doing ok until i heard a sound and looked up to see a coyote standing about twenty feet from me trying to figure out what i was doing, i think my jaw dropping down to my lap must have spooked him. Of course by the time i dropped the rangefinder and grabbed the rifle out of my lap, got the safety off and looked through the scope, ... he was safely in the trees. By the way, ... the trees were 232 yards away. So the rangefinder did come in handy!
