    I'd think somewhere between 150 and 200 yards. It's not land I have permission on, otherwise I'd have left the 4 dogs by the path and stalked in closer.

    The photos were cropped pretty heavily, which is why they've lost some detail, but with a 100-300mm lens that's about as good as I can get at that distance. The camera was on a monopod which I was then holding firmly against a wooden fence. Ideally I'd have remembered by remote shutter release which would have reduced some of the blurring

    To give you an idea, this is the uncropped image of the buck and the doe:



    If you can get closer the lens really starts to pick up the detail. Not a deer, but you'll get the idea:
