2012 Gila Coues
New Mexico 2012 November hunt. Many hours of glassing and a very lucky evening sun reflection off the antlers lead to Wes making a beautiful 500 yd shot. We had been glassing one hillside that was falling into shade. Anthony happened notice a flash or glint of sun and a moment later the Buck’s death cert. was figurative signed.
All of us have experienced the visual distraction of birds flying at great distances; the movement or reflection in the Sun can be a heart racer. You keep looking around or in these circumstances look closer, because any move may not be what it first appears to be.
