Pretty sure that wouldn't be legal here.

There is just something about shooting long range. I shot a raccoon at 187ys, he was eating my protein block that was meant for the cattle. Recently a fox squirrel was in my shooting stand eating deer corn, I got him at 167 yds. While stationed in Fort Campbell, Ky we shot groundhogs at up to a quarter mile, locals with custom guns were going further. Recently got two Mexican varmints at 500 yds with one shot. I also shot a bull elk at 40 yards with a 7mm. I will not be shooting anything at 1500 yds, first I am not capable and 2nd its to far to walk to check the kill. I would shoot a mule deer in Nebraska at up to 600 yds. Even in Colorado mule deer will see you quickly at 600 yds. If I can get to 400yds, that's where I want to be on mule deer. My most memorable shot was 467 yds on a mule deer. I sat for 32 minutes thinking about it then called my brother to tell him I did everything perfect so I should have killed that deer, finally I went to check and he only ran about 10 yds to the wood line.
Hit or miss, I look until I am certain the animal is dead or alive...I owe that much to the animal.
With that being said, I know I would have an immensely difficult time finding the exact spot an animal was at if he was 1500 yards away. I've gotten turned around looking for an animal that was 400 yards away when I shot since the only way to get to him was a 2 mile walk around buttes and creeks.
ive shot and killed elk at 50 yards where the bull didnt even act like he was hit. shot, bull looks up, walks a few yards and buckles. at long range that bull may or may not hear that shot and if he is worked up from rut or whatever, or just plain tired, u could nail his vitals and may not even react other than walking into nearby trees, now if you dont see him buckle you wont think it was a hit and wont go searching. in most cases, but i trust we are all sportsmen enough to know our limits.
On Elk mountain, near Colburn Co I was walking down and a herd of elk caught me from behind. A cow covered the bull but I had a neck shot and a perfect rest, shot was about 100yds, when the gun went off the elk dispersed. I climbed up to the little plateau they had been on, nothing, no hair, not a speck of blood. I had just begun to cry when the ravens below started their here he is song. There was a blood trail about 10 ft wide. The bullet had got the windpipe and juggler, I found him in a drain about 150 yds from where I shot.
One more, I took a friend hunting about 100 miles from where we live. I gave his the best trail to watch. He shot a ten point whitetail with a 30-30. Claimed he missed, we ask if he looked to make sure (my dad was with us) he said he was sure he missed. I went back the next morning and found his deer still leaning on a tree, the meat was spoiled. I always think of that when the rv show guys leave their gut shot animals till morning.
I like to hunt late in the day but I am prepared to find any animal I have shot and at least get it field dressed if I leave it over night.
One time I shot a whitetail buck on the Bighorn River in Wyoming and it fell right down. Then I went and gutted it and drug it back to the truck.
