My longest shot pales in comparison to the rest of yours. I' ve only been hunting one year though. It was a squirrel at 63 yards. It was with open sights (scope was in the mail). [:-]

These one shot kill brags!! disturbe me, if you must prove youre shoting skill why not prove it on paper. Because paper doesnt run away and die an agonizing death. Enjoy the hunt and just remember that getting close is the funest part. Dont get me wrong I know i can make a 200 yrd shot with my 30 06 but consider it pushing it and hunt my hardest to avoid it.

Hunt or be Hunted!!!

My longest one shot kill was a feral dog running a fawn down while I was chuck hunting, it was on a dead run about 200 yards. I was shooting a .22 hornet. My longest one shot kill with a shotgun slug was a spine shot on a wounded running whitetail at about 80 yards, the best part was the slug shot a 1 1/2 inch thick tree limb clean off on its way to the deer. I did this with an old bolt action 12 gauge jc higgins with an ace of spades glued on as a rear site, ugly but effective! My longest one shot kill with birdshot was on a crow at 45- 50 yards 2 3/4 inch #4 20 gauge. My all-time best shot was the first shot I ever took with any gun. My cousin handed me a daisy red rider, showed me how to use it and told me to shoot at something. About that time a bumblebee landed on a limb about 15 feet away I took aim and ..you guessed it knocked dead off the limb. He asked what I was shooting at and I told him but he didn' t believe me until I walked over and picked it up and he' s been trying to out do me ever since! That was my introduction to shooting.

I would like to add that I' ve always said and I' ve learned by experience that what you shoot isn' t nearly as important as how you shoot it and practice is the key to consistently good shooting no matter what you have to shoot!

Longest shot on a deer was this past fall, 260yds with 308 model99.

Longest shot on a groundhog was 325 yards with 243 model99; hoping to improve that this summer, just bought a 22-250 model99 last weekend and am probably going to set up my 2nd 308 model99 just to shoot 224 sabots.

I was probably 9 or 10 years old, had a Crosman 766 pump action pellet gun. There was a flock of starlings on the other side of a valley, must have been 250-300 yards away. There were about 500 starlings in the flock, and they were leapfrogging and flying over each other as they were feeding. Anyway, I gave the gun 10 pumps, aimed about 50 feet above the flock, and fired. 499 of the starlings flew off, one stayed.

last fall....514yds on a coyote. me and my father were actually deer hunting. the action was pretty slow so when we saw a small pack of yotes i decided to see what i could do. i had just bought a .270 WSM and it did the number on that dog. my father ranged it and said when the bullet hit the dog did a complet flip!!!
