    Actually it did happen. My neighbor was driving a piece of timber between my house and his, and a big buck ran out, I was standing at my house when the deer ran by, I had a pretty clear shot so I did shoot. Missed the buck, but the slug hit the frozen ground and ricocheted in and angle and hit his barn from that far.. it was one of those bizzare moments... The field between us sloped up but some how it happened.

    On another note my longest shot was in the 200yd+ range.

    92 yards, right through the brain. Buck was standing behind a line of trees and all I could see was the head only when he turned the head sideways. I knew I had to shoot through the brain, which is roughly a 2" circle to aim for. Savage 12 ga bolt action with Remington accutip 3". Squatted on the platform of my climber, rested my hand on the stand and made the shot. The buck just disappeared, I thought I missed. Went to the spot he was standing only at the end of my day's hunt and there he was, dropped on the spot. Used my range finder to measure the distance- 92 yards.

    Smooth bore: Rem 870 Imp Cyl and ACTIV 12 ga 3" 1 1/4 oz, many kills 75-100 yards (these were the most accurate Foster style slugs ever)

    Rifled: Rem 1100 with the old Rem Copper Sabots ~125 yards (copper solids?) I forget the nomenclature not the new accu-tips.

    About 90 yards on a Coyote with Brenneke 12 ga. 3" black magic magnum out of an Ithica mod 37 Deerslayer rifled barrel. Yeah, it was kind of messy I caught it quartering from the front to the back, but it was a spot on shot.
