Making Your Long Shot

"Not by a long shot" used to mean bad odds for a gambler trying to fill an inside straight in five-card stud. Nonetheless, nearly every hunting catalog and magazine we look at these days bombards us with "long-range" ammunition, "long-range" optics, and "long-range" rifles.

Long shots in the 400-plus-yard range should never be attempted at whitetails unless you have practiced thoroughly and are using an adequate long-range rifle/ ammunition/optics combo that you have confidence in.

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.
