Generally, when hunting, I'm going to try to stalk in under 100 yards.
Silly me, but it's just part of the fun of the challenge. I rarely see
something at a distance, and try to take it, right there. I think stalking
has been badly de-emphasized over the years; but good tracking
and stalking skills are a big part of hunting, for me. So I usually am
not taking a shot at 150 yards +.
