My brother and his best friend were with me on a morning hunt in the foothills when we spotted three whitetails on a ridge about 2 km from where we were, my brothers friend said 'Hey why dont you take a shot with your rifle from here' (jokingly)...  We laughed and moved on. Further along the trail we came across the same whitetail, the range finder we had topped at 500yds with a quick estimation, we figured the deer were at approx 750yds. I picked the little buck out and fired, just tickled his chest hairs. He moved off another 100yds and stopped, quick adjustment on my elevation, fired and the second hit like a mack truck. My brother looked at his friend who had earlier made a comment about a doe I had shot at 75yds, 'How is that for sniping...'
