Basic Truths about Shooting at Deer

How accurate does your deer rifle need to be? I like a rifle that can shoot one-inch groups, but what does that mean when you're shooting at a deer? Do you really need five bullet holes that touch each other in the target? What goes into maximizing accuracy in the field?

Sometimes you have less than a second to get your crosshairs on the deer and pull the trigger. No hunter gets one-inch groups under those conditions, so does that mean tiny groups aren't important? When a hunter says "My rifle will shoot one-inch groups all day if I do my part," exactly what does that mean? Find out the answers to these and other questions in my new article in "Deer & Deer Hunting" magazine, the January 2017 issue -- "Basic Truths about Shooting."
