Otto's reindeer

A reindeer shot at 200 yards with a 6.5x55 Mauser with iron sights at 200 yards.
Cheers,
Otto

I'm impressed, Otto - talk about some open country! Where was this taken?
Nice reindeer, Thanks for sending this in.

I am also blown away impressed by Otto's skills. Iron sights at 200 yards, with a Mauser no less...

Did he have some work done on it? I have one of my own and I enjoy shooting them, but the quality from Mauser to Mauser can vary greatly...

Silverfiddle: Don't be impressed - it was my best shot ever, and I will never be able to do it again. There was very little wind, the reindeer was almost stationary, and I was shooting from a prone position. My brother in law was next to me, ready to fire a follow up shot.
The Mauser is a sporterized Voere Mauser K98. No work done besides what the good people at Voere do to their rifles.

Wirecutter: This is a valley in southwest Greenland. Yes, you have readers in Greenland.

Cheers,
Otto

Congratulations to you still, Otto.

And that is responsible hunting, having someone ready as a backup in case you didn't get a clean shot.

WOW! I killed something that had no chance to defend itself. From 200 yards away! I AM A MAN!

Fuck you, go throw some wheat germ on your yogurt.
