No big game should be targeted at 800 yards.I have a slightly different take on this. If you are shooting at paper, do whatever floats your boat. If you are actually hunting.....deer, elk, whatever, then learn to hunt. Anyone trying to kill an animal at 800 yards (goats may be exempt) then you are not really hunting at all. You are a sniping at long range, usually with bad results. This is the primary reason that I have never hunted from a blind. It is simply my opinion that being 20 feet above a deer trail is an ambush....no hunting skill required. I know other may have a completely different opinion, and is ok by me. For me, that type of hunting just sucks the fun out of the experience. No braggin rights there.
