Live long enough, shoot enough, shoot straight and some lofty achievements can be obtained.
I took this groundhog two days ago with my FA .475 Linebaugh with an UltraDot and a 325 gr. Horn. XTP. I love taking 'hogs with my big guns. Makes you a better shot and helps relive the memories ( my last lion and rhino were done with this gun).
I started keeping yearly records in 1975 with the guns and the ranges taken. #1 single shot- .22-250 XP; #1 revolver -.44 Mag.

One of the toughest shots of my life was when I had a blackbuck in my sights at a ranch in Missouri... It was not that it was a 70 yard shot... but that you were watching....One of the true handgun hunters of my time whose list of trophies include Africa`s "Big Five" beside the thousands of deer and groundhogs that have fallen to your handguns and there`s no end in sight...Here`s to you Doc Roger`s....and the many more live targets to see through your sights...Sincerely, JFS

"Milestone"???

That's a freakin lifetime achievement award right there!! That's the equivalent of "New York City to Los Angeles" worth of milestones.

Well done!!!

Congrats Doc - I dare say that is an achievement that will likely never be topped, except by you. Most folks are dedicated enough to shoot that many pigs. Now figure out how much spent in ammo. That would be a staggering number too.

Congratulations Doc. You are a truly amazing handgunner. Such a major milestone. A true living legend. I say there is no one that has come close to bagging the number of game animals that you have. Keep it rolling.
