Theres a lot of ways to kill a deer in South Carolina, from up close and personal with a bow to in front of dogs that scatter deer from almost impenetrable cover. Then, in some sections of the state, theres the tried and true method of hunting from a stand over bait, usually at a respectable distance for a hunter.
While all of these will work late in the season, another strategy is overlooked by many hunters: long-range hunting. According to several expert hunters, long-range hunting is ideal for taking big deer anytime, but perhaps especially late-season.
As is the case with any tactic, some hunters take it to the extreme and shoot from extremely long distances the opposite of hunters who set up at 100 yards or less and limit their late-season opportunities. These experts give advice that will enable many to feel comfortable at distances of 150 to 300 yards sometimes longer.
