These are some great tips on how to simplify your life when it comes to those long shots.

Keeping Data on Previous Engagements (D.O.P.E.) doesn’t mean you have to be a ballistics scientist. Using tips like having ranges and data scribed out on your scope turrets based on previous range work (or written on your scope cover) allows you to have D.O.P.E. at your fingertips. A simple dial turn, and you will be ready for that long shot.

If you are really serious about raising your game, consider attending one of the reputable long-range shooting schools in the U.S. It’s not a bad way to ensure you get professional instruction. It may allow you to take the elk or deer of a lifetime at those longer ranges on the prairie, badlands, or mountains.
