Have to wonder in Iowa though how much does the prohibition of rifles effect what people shoot. I know shotguns and muzzle loaders can still reach out a ways, but in comparison to a rifle I still think they are limited.
Shotgun shot are really not short shot anymore with some of todays slugs you can take 200 -250 yrd shot in some cases. 250 is extreme but have had buddies who have killed deer at 200 yrds before..
I grew up rifle hunting and dont think it has any effect on the shot you take because if you dont feel comfortable shooting long distance just because your gun will shoot that far shouldnt give you any more confidence that you can hit where you aim..
It all comes down to using common sense when shooting and knowing your limitations...
