Default Driving distance?

Just curious how far you guys drive to get to your deer leases? I moved recently and now my lease went from 120 to 165 miles. Donít think Iím moving though as itís a very nice place. Thanks in advance.

16 miles. I can be in any of my blinds in 30 minutes from my house.
Helps not having too much time to overthink my strategy.
