Most people can't hit a deer at 500 yards to wound it...unless its in the leg or toe. Anyone who hasn't shot at targets at 500+ yards has no idea how much a bullet drops. I was amazed how much a slight crosswind can affect point of aim.
I thought Cooper built hunting rifles. Here's our local long range gunsmith and he can walk the talk.

My point exactly. At those distances being off 15 yards in your yardage estimate can make the difference.
You have to know the exact distance and wind. You have to know your cartridge. You have to do math. And you have to have a rock solid multiple point rest..... Raven nailed it that's shooting, not hunting.
To each his own. Your place your deer.
I typically hunt with my rifle a small pair of Steiner binos. The same clothes I where every day. And three shells in my gun. Oh and my pocket knife.

Could you pull up. Get out of your truck
Rest your rifle on a the bed of your truck. And hit at around 700 yards every time on the first shot.?

Nope and I would never attempt such a shot on a deer. How can you kill seven doe's in a morning with only three bullets?

Do you know anything about a bear in Gum Swamp, supposedly there's one roaming around between you and me tearing up deer feeders.

Here you go about 40 steps.

I have a brother 14 years younger. Rob brought my niece over to see my cows a few years ago. My brother was commenting how well my cows do here on the farm. She ask, "Uncle Ron, why do your cows do so well". I said, "Emilie, its the influence of wood elves". She smiled a beautiful smile and said, "Nooooo". I said let me prove it. We took the utility vehicle to the "big stone" on the back 30 and I told her this story:

There are are woodland elves roaming around here.  Neighbor said they are sleeping in his barn loft.  He said he is missing a few chickens and an old pair of work shoes that were setting on the porch.  He said that was what made him sure they were elves.  He tracked them.  He said their feet was too small to keep the shoes on. He found the shoes where the mud sucked them off.  Right beside the shoes were these little elf feet tracks.

I took Emilie to the big stone.  The stone does not fit into the surroundings.  It is the size of a compact car.   It is out of place there.  I told her, I couldn't figure out why the stone was there.  Then I was back there at dusk one night and I saw elves coming out from under that big rock.  It is actually a portal to a woodland realm where elves live.  I told her I have only seen them 4 times.  They ask me to keep the portal secret and in exchange they would use their magic to make my cows flourish.  My cows do well because of the elven influence.  Their magic is good for cattle.

For a year after that, she kept asking me to take her to see the elves.
