    One turns into two

    I started 2019 going for a hunt New Years Day, got up early and headed out glassing some nice looking clearings it didnít take long to spot a nice spiker on a small clearing he was feeding while I was busy ranging,dailing and trying to find a shooting spot. Long story short I missed but shooting over the top of him. I will pretty pissed but went and had a look and sure enough I had shot to high. I got home and unpacked my gear then went to a mates farm fired one shot at a gong setup at 250yds and middled it so put the miss down to rushing the shot at the spiker.
    Fast forward to this morning go for another hunt and spot a deer right on first light range and punch the numbers into Shooter on the phone and it is all up the wap saying D4.3 Moa. So I put the range in again making sure I have the right rifle and ammo combination and still the same numbers come out. Glassing deer and scratching my head trying to work out where things are going wrong. Give it to my mate to have a look at and he figured out that the look angle was miles out at -75deg which makes zero at 800yds or there abouts which is possibly why I missed the spiker last week. Any how with the deer patiently waiting and Shooter now giving the right numbers I settled in and took the shot at the now yearling feeding at the shot it took two steps and fell over, cool job done. Look back at clearing for landmarks and there is a deer standing in the same spot so I settled in and dropped it on the spot right now we have the retrieval job to do.
    Getting over to the clearing and the dog works itís way down to a very dead deer then it starts working over to the right a bit and hello deer number two so two nice little yearlings get cut into bits and lugged home. So on the board finally for 2019

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Nice work @Shootm how are the legs and back feeling?
    Have you tried a range reference card stuck to the side of your rifle stock. Some say there faster than the phone. Also less room for errors, well maybe
