Here in NJ it is similar, I only have a few fields that are over 1,000 yards across total.

BUT, IMO 500 yards is the front edge of long range! With a good flat shooting rifle a spotter isn't really needed most of the time since the TOF is probably in the 1/2 second area. Now in contrast, put yourself on a ridge across from an Elk meadow at 800 yards with openings and close cover intermixed and I think that that is a 100% different ballgame.

Can you use a rifle in NJ? I thought it was shotgun only.

Woodchuck is rifle, shotgun or bow.
Deer are ML, shotgun, or bow.


ML for Coyote, Fox and Bear ( if they open it back again) too.
