Anyways, thanks for looking. I can't wait to go back in the Spring to get a ridiculous amount of kills,

I take my 44 cu ft carbon fiber tank in a backpack I have that fits perfect. I've thought about getting a guppy but we just shoot so much it's better to just back pack a bigger tank. Something else I thought about was backpacking a guppy with regulator hooked up with hose straight to my gun so I don't have to deal with filling in the field.I had 4k psi in my tank when we got there and had 2.9k psi when I got home. Might have to get a bigger tank too.I also shot my gun using the single shot tray because it is a pain loading up clips out there. Much easier to pour a bunch of pellets in a pouch than fumbling with clips and my gun is a lil more accurate too.Henry
Did you guys have a buddy bottle (guppy bottle) in your backpacks?

Well the goats are long gone.... so no more goats. There are a couple horses there now, but they stay on the other side of the field... and this particular field is a 1/4 mile by 1/2 mile wide. Also, he zooms in a lot (I believe 40x) so everything is close. Those goats must have been at least 150+ yards away. He is also an excellent shot, performing nothing but "brain surgery" as he says, lol. He also shoots off a monopod and 10x power on his scope.I was right next to him when he made longest kill (for him) of the day, 92 yard head shot...said the mil-dot on his scope was the size of the ground squirrels head:One of the reasons he stopped making the videos was that editing is a lot of work and he got a couple emails regarding the goats being in the line of fire; but as you can see they didn't even flinch. Only the intended targets were harmed.Thanks for your concern,Henry
I've watched that very video many times when I first started getting into air rifles. That's some pretty good shooting on those ground squirrels. Although I don't think I would have taken a couple of those shots due to the goats being behind the squirrels.
