I find these types of vids really interesting because hunting shots are usually done in less than ideal situations. Everybody today is a 600 yards plus hunter if you watch the "influencers" on YouTube. Those guys really bother me because I think it encourages irresponsible behavior by others, thinking it's cool to smoke an animal 1,000 yards away.

Anyway.......

Now that I have my yardages dialed in, I've started shooting off the pack, prone, sitting and kneeling. Also been using the trekking poles. Man, it gets challenging fast. Out to 200 yards I find there is a lot of room for error. 300 meters, things start to really change. 400 meters, forget about it. I can't hit the broad side of the barn unless I'm prone, and the gun is well rested, most important being the back of the stock.

We have some state land where someone had put out steel at various locations. Lots of big hills to set up on and shoot out to as far as 600 yards. I plan to add a couple more gongs out there. Should be lots of fun and lots of learning. Especially when the wind comes through.

I'm starting to realize a long shot could be 400 yards, or it could be 100 yards. There are a lot of factors I will have to consider. Nice to see that other common hunters have the dance challenges.
