He told me that he shot a doe last year at approx 900 yards.
"Approximately."

With ranges that long, and any weapon with a trajectory that is more curved than that of a laser, then "approximately" is not near precise enough. A range estimation error of 25 yards = a miss. Misjudging the wind vector(s) will likewise = a miss (or worse, a bad hit).
