Typically 1 by a large margin. Most 150-250 where I deer and pig hunt.
Only killed 2 big game animals past 400 and both of those in wide open eastern CO.

Hands down #1

Shot my first deer in Colorado in 1965, and hunted most years since in Colorado and Montana, plus 3 hunts in Alaska, and a dozen international hunts in Africa, Canada, New Zealand, and Azerbaijan.

My closest was point blank range on black bear, my longest 525 on moose, my average I would say 175 to 200 yards.


My LR scope is a Huskemaw Blue Diamond 5-20x50. It's awesome.

Out west, #2, I can't seem to get a close shot. Back east, less than 75 yards. That said, I killed a moose in New Foundland at 269 yards and a caribou at less than 200 yards.

I've killed a few deer over 400. Lots of them over 200. Majority in the 100-200 yard range.

Depends on the game and the location.

I've shot whitetail I probably could have touched with the barrel. And I've shot them just shy of 500.

Antelope from just over 100 to just over 400.

Both my elk were within 75 yards but was prepared for allot more


Small Game, Deer, Turkey, Bear, Elk....It's what's for dinner.

If you know how many guns you own... you don't own enough.
