True, never claimed to be any good, only claimed it was fun. More practice is definitely needed. Baby steps for now. :lol:

WHAT TREE???? :lol2: :lol: I couldn't see a 747 from that distance.Jogeephus":17ongm7j said:That looks similar to some of the places I hunt in the swamp. Most of the shots are 150 yards or less but I cut out one shooting lane about 40 foot wide and goes straight in the swamp for 400 yards. Some fine bucks have come from this stand but like you say you have to be on your toes and you need to be quick because though 40 foots seems wide at 400 yards forty feet ain't much. I try to reserve this area for shooting hogs and trophy deer.
Here is a field I have a lot of fun in harvesting doe and offers the most challenging shots. If you look at about 1 oclock you can see a mushroom topped tree. This tree is a 1000 yards from where I'm standing and then there is 50 yards of field past this tree before it hits another treeline. This is the longest possible shot but there are plenty of shots from 200-800 yards and deer frequent this area pretty regularly.

At that time we were shooting jack rabbits out to 300 plus yards 3-4 days a week. That was was 1998. Since I don;r shoot as often and rarely at much distance, I've pretty much gotten leery of anything over 200 yards.
Mine too Grit......it never was worth a shyt. :lol: :lol2:True Grit Farms":1pxqnu3t said:If I could get a deer to parade around with a metal target I might try a 600+ yd shot. Getting old has really had an effect on my ability to hold the X steady, but my golf game is as good as ever.
Jogeephus, it looks like you put your stamp on her in more ways than one.
