First hunt with smoke pole

Took my ML along with my Savage 220F to a farm I hunt yotes at yesterday. Wasn't sure id actually use it but I figured the chances were better if it was in the blind instead of the safe.

Damn phone.

I took four with the 220 then decided to pick up the wildcat. It took a while to line up a clean shot but finally got one broadside at 125yds.

Can't post pic from phone. I'll throw one up when I get home.

Impressive shot, especially with open sights.

Thanks. I'm actually enjoying knowing I won't get a second shot. It's helping me take better shots with shotgun and rifle.

Nice shot. Guess you're not worried about small holes in the pelt....

Wow, what kind of bullet was it? That is pretty deadly.

Nope ;-). The farmer wants the yotes to leave his calves alone and I use it as practice for deer season. Yotes go in a hole at the end of the day.

TC Shock Wave 250gr ahead of 100gr 777. Near as I can guess, the large hole was from shoulder fragments being blown out. Regardless, it did the job.

How manageable is the recoil? I have only shot the shock waves with 80grs of 777.

Recoil isn't bad. My Wildcat is extremely light so it's a bit worse than a heavier gun. It's comparable to a 12ga or a .30-06

Good Grief! That really did leave quite a mark!
Did you have to adjust much for drop at 125 yards?

I've got it sighted in 3" high at 100 yards. It hit right about where I aimed
