One of the most common questions we get at NetGunForSale.com is “Just how far do the nets fly once launched?”
They actually fly pretty far. On average (you’d have to factor wind in some scenarios) but they usually land right at 45 feet away from where you fired it from.
I usually recommend to stand about 15 feet away from the target if possible. You can go a little further than that if needed, but I like 15 feet because it gives the net the chance to open wide and keeps a strong trajectory.
15 feet gives you plenty of room to capture your intended target, and keeps you safe from potential harm.
But if you have frightened or shy animals, you can give yourself an extra 10 feet or so, so that you can maintain a good distance and not scare away the animal when you fire your net gun.
