    My favorite longish shot was 230 yards with my marlin 336c lever action 30/30 on a fat little doe. I was about 20 and was pretty proud of that shot, free hand standing too.

      Farthest successful shot was this year - ranged at 259 yards - with my Remington 710 in 30-06 topped with the Bushnell 3-9x that came with it. She dropped in her tracks. It was almost a windless day and I was shooting across wide open terrain from a ground blind. After reading the above posts I would call that an amateur distance. Say what you will about my Remington 710 being cheap, etc... it shoots very well!

              200 yards at our local range is the longest distance we have. I would say 150 yards was the longest shot I have taken at a deer. I used a .308, and he went about 50 yards and expired.

                I dropped a Kentucky whitetail at 615 yards with a Remington model 788 in .308 Winchester. The scope was a $35 Bushnell 4x fixed. The load was a Barnes X-bullet, 150 grain over 47 grains of Winchester 748.

                  I once hit a spike elk at 350 yards downhill with 30-06. By the time I had finally killed it and got it out of the hell hole it wandered into, I was sorry I ever took that hair-brained shot!

                    I shot a coyote with my 240 Weatherby at...I can't remember the distance because it gets longer every time I tell the story:-D). Actually it was between 350 and 400 yards. I have puched paper at 1,000 yards with a .308 Win.
