Annual Long Range PA Doe Hunt

Every year (when the deer population allows) my friends and I attempt to eliminate a number of does off of my 120 acre farm on the last day of our PA rifle season. We do this in hopes of lowering the high doe population in my area. My goal is to skew the buck to doe ratio a little closer to my desired numbers and on top of it all this traditional day is extremely fun and action packed. This was the first year we decided to do it with our longrange rigs and I was very impressed with our results! I will list the shots below which all resulted in a dead a recovered doe on video! My friend is compiling this footage and much more in hopes of putting together a long range dvd. So I'm sorry but I can't post any videos just yet.

1. 690 yds with a custom built .338 Lapua Ackley
2. 875 yds with a bone stock savage .338 Lapua model 110 FCP HS Precision
3. 725 yds with a custom built .280 Ackley
4. 730 yds with a custom built 50 BMG
5. 735 yds with aforementioned custom .338 Lapua Ackely
6. 725 yds with aforementioned custom .338 Lapua Ackley
7. 680 yds with aforementioned savage

There were six guys hunting and the savage owner shot one in the morning and one in the afternoon. So in a recap that is a total yardage of 5,160 yds and an average shot of 737 yds. We took shelter from the rain under an EZ up tent and simply shot from under it. The deer didn't have a clue we were there!

Re: Annual Long Range PA Doe Hunt

I'm curious as to what a 50BMG does to deer? Good shooting by the way. I killed a wounded doe on the last day. Shot her on the run.
