That looks similar to some of the places I hunt in the swamp. Most of the shots are 150 yards or less but I cut out one shooting lane about 40 foot wide and goes straight in the swamp for 400 yards. Some fine bucks have come from this stand but like you say you have to be on your toes and you need to be quick because though 40 foots seems wide at 400 yards forty feet ain't much. I try to reserve this area for shooting hogs and trophy deer.

Here is a field I have a lot of fun in harvesting doe and offers the most challenging shots. If you look at about 1 oclock you can see a mushroom topped tree. This tree is a 1000 yards from where I'm standing and then there is 50 yards of field past this tree before it hits another treeline. This is the longest possible shot but there are plenty of shots from 200-800 yards and deer frequent this area pretty regularly.

If you was any good Jo you would be shooting squirrels outta that tree with an open sighted .22 from there. Keep practicing you will get better.

True, never claimed to be any good, only claimed it was fun. More practice is definitely needed. Baby steps for now. :lol:
