So why is this in the Long Range Hunting forum? I guess that was mainly my confusion. If we're talking sub 200 yard shots I certainly get the debate.I was referring to the typical distances we shoot here in eastern US which is often under 200 yards. I have a shooting house over a cut corn field where I can shoot out to 650 yards but it never fails that most of my kills from this spot are under 200. The two deer I killed this season were 120 yards and 47 yards. Here is a pic of a buck I shot out the left window that was making a scrape on the tree line. You can see my blind in the background.
Sometimes there are only moments where a shot opportunity will occur.
