Hmmmm...now why does that name look so familiar? lol. A little under 150 yds.
about 287 yds, give or take. one shot,done
I killed my biggest buck on a gallop at 379 yards,measured it with google earth. 110% luck (yes I'm a honest fella) my longest shot after that was around 220 yds. My average around 50 ft. Closest 15ft.
Around the woods of Nh you dont generally get more than a 50 -75 yd shot.
643 yards on a Cow Elk
585 yards on a prairie dog.
Not for sure But I'm guessing around 130+. With my slug gun on my first wall hanger muley.
250 yards exactly.
674 Yards, got a good size boar. With a .270 WSM,just last month.
My longest shot at anything was 330 yards on a woodchuck, from a prone position with a .22-250. I forget what yardage I was sighted in for, but on that shot, I held the crosshairs on his hairline between the ears.
175 yards with a .243 on a whitetail. Hit the heart and one lung.
355 yd 1 shot kill on WT buck with a mod 70 in 270 Win.

110 yds. .50 cal Renegade M/L. Open sights. Whitetail doe.
58 yd bowkill. Mule Deer.
The longest one that I thought I deserved was on a Dall ram at a lazered 391 yards prone and wrapped up in my sling. I had my hunting partner watching through his spotting scope and I had just fired that same load at 400 yards four days before. They had caught our scent and were hiding in a ravine about 100 yards away and one of the satellite rams had us unable to move without spooking him where he was bedded. When the other six rams that were in the ravine started to move into view they were all clustered together and I could not shoot him out of the bunch of smaller rams. They kept moving in a bunch slowly uphill and to the right and finally at 391 yards they separated, stopped and there was a chance to shoot. I held 3 minutes of elevation and squeezed the shot on the half and hold. There was no reaction from the ram and I asked my hunting partner if he marked the shot. Just then the ram went down. He never moved and the other rams just stood staring at him. Just for curiosity I set up a target at the same distance the next day and fired a round. It struck the target 2" high. I have made others at the mid 400's but I considered them luck. This one was repeatable.
Shot a moose at 500 yrds with 30-06 model 700 rem.used 180gr.bt horandy handload 51gr.4064.
350 yards. coyote
504 on coyote with Browning A-bolt .22-250
and 218 yards on whitetail with T/C Omega 50 cal.
muzzleloader. and 52 yards with PSE Durango bow and carbon arrows, mechanical broadheads......
would rather have them closer then further though :)
Just last week took a doe at 230. I don't hunt in the open land much so it was stoked to let the legs out on my 270 a bit.
Closest shot was about 8 ft with a bow, on the ground, no blind. At one point that deer was too close for me to extend my arm with the bow and safely shoot. Coolest thing by far that happened to me in the woods.
297 steps, on a coyote with a .222 Remington Mohawk.
Here in WV the longest shots where I hunt are under 100 yards. I killed a 30 inch mule deer in Colorado at 410 yards. Missed it first two times. Shot over. Got settled down and took a solid rest off my backpack and made the shot.
458 yards on a male fox with a 22-250 rem model 700 SPS Varmint rifle with a 6-18 Mark 2 Leupold scope and a 55gr. Nosler Ballistic Tip with 34.0 gr. of IMR 8208 powder.
