Longest shot you scored on a PA deer?

I took a four point (when it was legal to do so) at 310 yards. That is more than 100 yards than my next closest long range PA deer (200) and is longer range than any of the four pronghorn I've taken. 310 is not super long for the right equipment but with my 760 .30-06 and a Bushnell 4X I felt it was an incredible shot. Let's hear yours.

175 yards on a doe, have shot about 25 deer with a rifle and only 2 have been over 100 yards.

Re: Longest shot you scored on a PA deer?

I know people will find this hard to believe but -- with a witness beside me, at over 500 yds. at a buck that looked more like a greyhound in flight. This was a free-hand shot with a 760 30-06. I remember my dad saying to lead & elevate. Upon checking the deer, the shot hit the liver & that deer only went 40 yrds.

Shot a doe at better than 500 yds with a heavy barrel 243 that had been set up for groundhogs. She dropped in her tracks.

Doe around 500 yards with my .300 WM. I know she looked small with scope on 11 power but was sitting and tried the shot.

110 yards with a Benelli Super Black Eagle slug gun and Wichester Partition Gold slugs in a shotgun zone. Longest rifle shot in PA was 85 yards with a 30-06 Ruger 77. I did shoot a caribou in Canada at about 350 yards though with a .300 Weatherby. That is my longest shot anywhwere at anything.

A doe at 1670 yards. Gotta love long range hunting. My buddy that had all the equipment moved away and I don't have the funds to buy every thing needed at one time. It is a work in progress though.

You can't get em from the couch.
