    Just curious. To all the fellow hunters out there on TGT, what is you longest wild game successful shot? For me it's 358 yds (per Leopold range finder). With most of my hunting being under 200 yds, I just don't shoot very far.

    heart shot on a fallow deer at 265 yards off of the windshield of a can am. He was rutting hard and I had about a 2 second pause to get him in the crosshairs. Dropped ten yards from where I hit him.

    180gr Interlock handloads out of a 308 Ruger American. I am hoping that when I get to WY I will be able to do a bit more long distance hunting

    What were you doing in Stratford besides killing little dogs on the prairie? There is absolutely nothing in Stratford?

    Out here by the lake!
    I took a trotting Jackal@ 300 yards. I was seated, used the roll bar for a rest. This wagon a bet. I think that fact that I called the distance then adjust the ballistic cam on the scope before the shot - drop impressed them as much!
