I personally feel comfortable shooting targets at 500-1000 yards. Hunting big game is different. I try to get as close as possible, but I want you to be ready for the long shot if you have the right opportunity. I can show you the nuts and bolts of what it takes to make those shots. A good gun, bullets, and scope combination to the game being hunted helps ensure your success. There is no substitute for practice! Above all never attempt a shot on big game that you haven’t made on targets.
