Default Long range varmints..

I recently picked up this young hunter on YouTube. Since he lives in my neighborhood, about 50 miles from me, I have followed some of his videos.

He lives near Clymer, NY.. an area where I built many a farm silo, when I was working at that trade. He is evidently a more diligent and successful hunter than I ever was and handy with technology to boot.

He seems to cover all the hunting we have in my area; deer, bear, turkey, coyotes, varmints etc. ..And since Clymer is close to the Pennsylvania border, hunts there also.

Here is a video showing long range shooting of our #1 varmint..called groundhog by many, but usually called woodchuck around here.


He posts videos as "kill-em outdoors" and also KEO vlogs.

The guy is a good shot for sure.

The quality of a mans life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence.

A bad day at the range is better than a good day at work!!

That is some great shooting.
Did he mention what caliber he was using?
I believe the rifle was a Savage.
