I just wanted to say thanks to all for the info and direction in setting up for hunting long range. I just doubled the distance of any previous kills today. A small doe, but a victory all the same. 486 yards from prone on a snowbank. I saw a nice buck a few days ago at 510 but I had already used up my buck tag the last day of archery, which was another long range record for me, 60 yards. The humbling point of the day was that my wife, 6mm in hand, one shot, from a squatting folded glove rest on the edge of a trailer, took a larger doe than mine right at 350. I'll keep on practicing and reading and maybe next year I will be able to double my distance again. With the rifle of course, I don't believe I'll be going any farther with the bow.
