    That pretty much depends on what you want to hunt.

    Elk hunters have a pretty big kill zone to hit while those who hunt Prairie Dogs have a fairly narrow one.

    I hunt coyotes, but I don't leave them lay or let them run off wounded. I lose a couple each year, but not for lack of effort on my part.

    Coyotes give me a 4" kill zone. My range is limited to the distance I can shoot groups 4" or under.

    A 1/2 MOA rifle will give me only 800 possible yards of range.
    If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
