I know the Plinkinton does not spook animals beyond 75 meters. Maybe someone with the .17HMR can check if it is the same or more.
The 17 HMR doesnt spook at 85m. I just shot 2 pheasants sitting side by side at 85m & the 2nd one didnt react when I shot his buddy.
that are pheasants. they dont spook when you ran next to them. also it did spook a mule deer at 135m.
and plinkington spooking radius was 100m with male turkeys; 75-85m with female
Yes must be tested on turkey. But space your shots if you fire shots in to short of a time you will spook the plink will not spook at 75 meters male or female but lets use 80 meters to be safe.
When I am mass murdering turkey I use the box caller after every shot and that seems to be about the correct amounts of time.
