Is it possible to shoot a deer in the eye at 700 yards? Yes it is.
Watch the video to see Mike Davidson of Gunwerks rifles do just that.
Okay, maybe that wasn't the eye you were expecting. But you have to admit, that was a pretty impressive shot.
Whether you shoot a deer in the eye or the lungs at 700 yards, you've made a pretty good shot. Long range rifles like those manufactured by Gunwerks have changed the game for hunters. The precision delivered by these rifles allows hunters to take shots at ranges that were unheard of in the past.
The key to long range hunting is practice and having an intimate knowledge of your weapon and its capabilities. If you are not sure where your bullet will impact, don't take the shot. However, if you've put in the time at the range and know that you can hit your target, long range shooting could be the key to your success this hunting season.
