When hunting fields with say 500-700yrd shots, I'm curious what the average range of deer killed??

I know people that shoot all the time like Mr Big, DA, and some others will have a longer yardage kill percentage, but I'm just curious what the average hunter will encounter?

I hunt fields all the time and most of my shots are 200 and less 90% of the time with only a few at longer ranges.

Hunting conditions are not ideal for long range shots. Way too many factors involved like deer constantly moving is the biggest factor.

I would think over 90% of all deer I have killed were less than 100 yards,,3 of the 4 biggest racked bucks I have killed were less than 50 yards,,

I have killed a few between 300 and 400 and 3-4 over 400 but the vast majority are up close,,

Shot one deer in the mountains of PA at 120 yds from a ridge. Other than that, any deer I have killed has been within 75 yards.

most 40 to 60 yds, I have found that when I get over 150 yds or so that I do not get the bullet placement necessary a lot of the time.

100 yds or less. Never had the opportunity to shoot, or even had an opening TO shoot, over that distance. \:\)

My closest shot was probably 10 yards, my longest was 155. Most are in the 25-50 yard range.
