My closest was 15 yards and the longest was 425 yards. On average I would say 75 yards.

If you don't mind my asking, what motivated you to take such a long shot there at Cross Creeks?

Well Mr. Parrish, an 8 point chasing a doe through one of the corn fields. They weren't moving any closer and I didn't think they were going to stop but unfortunately for him they did. I saw my window of opportunity and knew it wouldn't last long. Delivered a 180gr NAB via .300 RUM on target and down he went. Motivation leads to success. Knowing your rifle leads to confident shots.

Thanks for your reply, bjohnson.
I'm very motivated, and really know my rifle, but I'm not confident in my personal abilities in having a high probability of making a 600-plus yard shot (at a live deer) from my typical deer-hunting set-ups. My typical rifle is capable of it, while I am not. I'm confident of that. \:\)

You'd be surprised at how stable of a platform a summit viper and an undeployed bipod is when you need it lol.

I've a good friend who shoots a .300 UM and he routinely practices his doe management kills at 700 yds, consistently at feeding does.
