I haven't had any luck lying in wait, 125 feet from the bait plot in the lower 20 acres.
Now that the leaves have fallen from the trees, I have a potential shooting alley from the house, down to the bait area. I only need to fell a small tree or two.
I would be shooting from about 800 feet away, and the house is about 140 feet higher in elevation than the target area. Light woods seperate the area.
Assuming I get a big enough gun sighted in at this distance and drop, how do you guys feel about that strategy? It seems like it would be akin to cheating: I wouldn't need camo, or silence.
On the other hand, I'm just trying to put meat in the freezer. I don't have trophy aspirations, and I'd probably pass up on a nice buck, if there was a big doe nearby, just to leave it for the sportsmen.
See any pitfalls?
