I started hunting Alaska in 1965. I am thinking back on the shots my friends, family and I have taken and what the average distance was for the shot on about 40 animals that come to mind. These are moose, caribou, sheep and bears that were shot with to many different calibers to mention and a variety of bullets in different weights. For us the average distance is under 150 yards. Just the way it has worked out. I am really curious how far the average shot has been for most of you. Thanks for sharing and have a great hunting season.
