I should have done this years ago. The country I live in is similar to yours. It would be very unusual to get a shot past 25 yards, and I probably wouldn't want to shoot further anyway. I've settled on a 20 yard crawl. The darn gaps shrink so much I've shot out my 3D pronghorn target, so I'm shooting thru the lungs into the bank behind it.

You don't even have to think about the gaps. You just put the tip on the mark at 20, and since the gaps are so narrow, you just feel them up to 5 yards.

We've got a couple decent bucks this year and really excited about get'n after'm--first time in three years.
