400 yard coyote. Got a few gongs hanging on my uncles farmland where we target shoot. We made a baitsycle out freezer burnt meat and put it right next to the gong. Easy pickings for my Savage TR in 308.
First season with a crossbow so nothing yet. But While scouting I ran into a few does who would jump up from a nap in the bush, run 20 to 40 yards and turn broadside and stare at you fairly unalarmed and a couple of times would just start browsing. So I've really been practicing off hand out to 40. They are very used to seeing humans up close in this area. The whitetail though are a different story. They are gone as soon as they smell ya.

Pretty stock, for now.....

I picked up a Savage 220 slug gun, 20 gauge bolt action fully rifled barrel. Topped her off with a Leupold 3X9X40 VX1 scope, and I get 2" groups at 125 yards, farthest i have shot her so far. This is using Hornady Superformance Slugs, so we'll see this season! 8)
