If you like to think it takes a great shot to hit an animal the size of a calf at 50 yards with a rifle then so be it.


I sure know a TON of hunters that can't do it WELL consistently.


And I know several small kids and wives/girlfriends of hunters who have little practice and have accomplished this feat more than once.


Absolutely true.

You do not need to have prime location to be a successful big buck hunter... You'd be surprised how many 130-160 deer exist on public hunting lands in TN.


The word used was PRIME not PRIVATE. If an area holds many 130-160 deer and allows hunting I would consider that a "prime" hunting area whether it be public, private, or residential. My definition of "prime" hunting land is one where large bucks reside which is of major importance for one trying to kill big bucks. No need to make this any harder than it is.

Hopefully, after re-reading this you can find the contradictory statement above.


I usually save arguing semantics for the political forum in pointless debates. But so far you have taken the time out of your day to analyze my posts to argue the definition of the words "prime" and "halfway decent". Now you've added "your comfort zone" to our vocabulary list.

Nothing contradicting in what I said.

You don't have to be a great shot-You don't need to be able to be comfortable at 750 yards.

You better be a great shot in your comfort zone-if you can't hit 10/10 kill zones on a target, you can't kill 10/10 deer.

btw-I understand your prime location arguement a little better now that I know what you define as prime.

I don't typically argue about anything lol. I certainly don't waste my time arguing politics.
