Re: Your Longest Kill on Game

i shot a g-hog at 1030 yds. was verifying my drop chart right before hunting season and this g-hog literally walked out behind my 1k target that i was getting ready to pull the trigger on. i guessed him to be 25-30 yds behind the target, gave it 4 more clicks and i can assure you a 250SMK shot from an Edge will turn brown to red at 1030!

Your Longest Kill on Game

704yd Hare with a .243 Tikka T3 Super Varmint. Shot with V-Max and a cold barrel.

The light was dropping and the hare was sat on the same spot for over 20 minutes. I got him with a V-Max load in the chest.

I was made up for the day !!!

Re: Your Longest Kill on Game

Youngun,
Great post and good luck with your long range shooting...... one thing for sure, it will keep you out of trouble. After you spend all your money on guns, ammo, and optics you won't have any money to be chasing girls or any of that kind of stuff

I'll give you my two longest.

I shot a doe at 1007 yards several years ago. Here in the hills of Arkansas it is hard to find a place you can see 1000 yards much less shoot that far, but I really wanted to kill something at 1000+. I have a place where I can see that far, and started putting out corn to get deer coming to the spot (it is legal to bait in AR). After a week or so of putting out corn I set up one evening and shot a doe shooting prone from a bipod with a 338 Kahn. I had my 1000+ yard shot but still it was kind of a set up......

Since then I have taken many critters in the 400, 500 and even some in the 700+ range in true hunting / field conditions, but nothing further than about 725 until this fall.

This fall I shot an antelope doe at 940 yards on a hunt out in WY. The best part of that shot was that I had a couple of non-believers watching. They think all this long range stuff is just luck........ Both just about fell over when I killed a bedded down doe the first shot with about 12 mph crosswind to deal with.

Keep shooting and have fun!

Re: Your Longest Kill on Game

My longest kill was also my first racked buck when I was 16.

A 6 point walked across a field chasing a doe. I had a Rem 700 in .270 with a piece of junk Bushnell banner scope that had a compensator dial on the top. I missed the first couple of shots, but once I got it dialed up to 500 yards, I drilled him. He fell and got up and started toward the woods edge, and then shot his front leg off with a follow up shot.

I was shooting off of a forked stick that we kept in blind we built under the edge of an old barn and sitting on a 5 gallon bucket. I was hunting with my Dad's friend at the time and when he got there I tried to explain where the deer was and he said "no way". We got in the truck and drove out there and he still didn't believe me until we found the blood trail leading over to the field edge to where the deer laid dead. I will never forget the look on his face when we found him.

we clocked the distance on the truck back to the blind and it read, .3 miles so it was somewhere just over 500 yards.
