My farthest 'confirmed' shot was sitting on a hill overlooking a sagebrush mostly flat valley floor. As the sun was coming up I saw this lone jack rabbit hopping along a dry river wash, and I fired at him with my 25.06. When thwe scope came back down to position, I thought I saw him briefly hopping around with a missing back leg before he went around a bend and was lost. I climbed down off the hill, ran out to finish him off and put him out of his misery and after searching for a while came across a splash of blood. Then I saw it. one ear was stuck on a rock. around the bend was the dead rabbit. His head was gone.
Me and a friend paced it off back to the base of the cliff I was shooting from and it was 400 yards give or take what a stride equals to. Pure luck I thought for a jack rabbit on the move at that distance.
