We all have a duty to despatch our quarry as humanely as possible, and i fully appreciate that with experience bullet placement improves and you would be able to confidently increase the ranges at which we all shoot. I would consider myself a novice stalker so only have the confidence to shoot at below 120yards with deer ( decision based on meat preservation ), but regularly shoot foxes at over 200 yards successfully. after a weekend shootings gongs with mates out to 600yards. a debate started as to what distances we would accept as safe and humane distances to shoot at. i would be interested to see views of experienced stalkers and i have never had the opportunity to shoot on the open hill, so at what ranges are you expected to shoot at uip there?
