My longest has been about 100 yds, definitely no further where I hunt.

My longest on a deer was this year and it was something around 300yds. Got another one a minute before that shot at about 225yds. I was shooting from a pretty solid rest on a table under a shed though - I sure can't do that offhand! Funny thing is that I bought the 257Weatherby just for long shots but have carried it for 3 years now before getting a chance at a long shot. The 1st deer I got with it ran by about 35 yards away. I shot him almost as a reflex. \:\(

Most of my shots are 50-60 yds with a few ranging out around 100+ every now and then. And I hunt over fields a lot too.

My longest is 208 yards according to the cheap rangefinder I have.

I rarely have to shoot over 70 yards.

Bow hunting, I've never taken a shot over 30 yards because I've not had to yet. (Only been bowhunting 3 years)

My hunting area and style of hunting are not conducive to long shots. However, if I had the opportunity for a long-range shot, I feel comfortable up to a 150 yards with my inline MZ and 200 yards with my rifle.

So far, the longest shots I've ever attempted (with both weapons) are around a 125 yards.

I practice this so I'm confident when I take it...a little over 300 yards from a rest with an .06 Remington, Leupold scope...
