My furthest was an elk at 1188.
Goodgrouper killed one at 1408 last year. I helped pack it out. Might be the furthest one here.

The longest shot I have access to on game is going to be 488 yds. I've passed on that shot twice. No experience at that distance.

Some of those distances are impressive. Especially the ground hogs. Man is that a ways away for such a small critter.

Re: Longest Hunting Harvest on the Boards

1137 on a Kansas WT doe and a WY antelope @ 820 are my two longest with my 338 Lapua built by Long Shot Precision of Conrad MT. I also witnessed a 1002 yard shot on a gopher made by Joe Starns when I picked up my rifle.

2 Ground Hogs, first at 628 and the second at 605 through the head. Found out later that they were luck, because my load was pretty poor. I've got a good one now using 200grn SMK's. Both with a 300WSM.
