As I was getting the rifles ready for the coming hunting seasons I was reviewing some of my notes from past years. My average shot over the years has been very close to 200 yards. I have shot more pronghorns at distances of 100 yards or less than I have at distances exceeding 300 yards. I do not think that most guys really need to have a long range rifle (as seen on TV) if they are willing to walk a bit. Surely there are occasions where it is simply not possible to get close but taking a long poke has been fairly rare in my experience.
