    It depends.
    May shoot a bit high at 100-150.
    If the hunt is Sat., you really should find a range to confirm POA/POI.
    If you don't confirm your zero, you may end up wounding a deer instead of having a clean kill. Not good hunting ethics to have an animal you've wounded dying an agonizing death or ending up partially crippled.
    If you can't zero the rifle at your expected ranges, don't go shooting. Stay home.
