400 yards but I practice like crazy and the conditions must be right. but I bow hunt mostly and with that its 60 practice practice practice. but I very rarely have to take a shot over 200 yards if I hunt with the rifle. I like them up close and personal. that's a pretty good poke there. what caliber were you using?

I have only been deer hunting about 2 years. with my gun my longest was about 50 yards, dropped in tracks... then her fawn at 40 yards about a minute later, also dropped in tracks (took me by surprise). With the bow, the longest was probably 20 or 21 yards. I much prefer close shots with both gun and bow. My favorite shots with the bow are 10 yards and less (I made 3 this past season - 5, 7 and 10 yards) and I like em within 30 yards or less with a gun. I just like having deer up close, gets the adrenaline pumping more. On the last day of season, I was hunting with ImThere and had to watch him shoot a big doe at least 200+ yards across a field because my gun won't shoot that far and I couldn't hold his gun steady enough to shoot. Doesn't bother me, I would rather stalk up close or have them come up close to me.

Primarily hunt woods from a climber, longest shot this season was 75 yards with Remington 700 BDL 30-06. Not many shots that far to be had where I'm hunting, but I'd feel good about it with that rifle 200 yds+ given a clear shot.
