For most whitetail hunting situations in the eastern half of the country, "long-range" is pretty short. But consider this: One of the most common land units in rural America is a 40-acre field. And there is scarcely a whitetail rifle hunter living who hasn't at least once in his life been sitting in a ground blind or tree stand along one edge of a 40-acre field and seen a buck of his dreams feeding placidly at the fencerow on the opposite side.
