The iron sights limt my range more than the trajectory. With good light and a solid rest, I might push it to 150. Under less than optimal conditions I am 125 max. I know my gun can get it done at further distances, it has when the scope is on. But when I am elk hunting and not allowed to use my scope, my eyes fail me past 150.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
