    Food for Thought

    Just read the recent feedback. I appreciate the information on the ranges, where to shoot as well as the offer from Adam. Sorry I missed out on this offer. Im a Native Arizonian and have hunted with great success most of my life but its never to late to become a better shot. Most of the practicing I have done has been at 100-200 yards off a bench using my shooting bags. At that range and under those conditions I do quite well. Shooting off my pack, bipod, or tripod sure impacts my groups. As mentioned earlier I am setting up some rifles to improve my capability to shoot longer ranges and then dedicate more time to practice. Time will tell.

    Food for Thought

    I dont have a dog in this fight but as far as myself I have never taken a deer or elk over 450 yards. I just have not had the equipment nor have I practiced enough to make these long distance shots. That said I am working on putting together a rifle to allow me to shoot confidently at a little longer range. I dont believe that most hunters can confidently shoot past 400 yards. My hats off to the guys that put the time in to practice shooting long range. Like any sport be it golf, racing, or anything else just because you can buy the equipment doesnt make you the best without practice. I did a little research on line and was surprised to learn that of all “confirmed” kills by all snipers in all countries since 1864 less than 20 have been made over 1250 meters. Where are most of you long distance shooters practicing? I know the 3 Point range you can shoot 500 meters but not so sure you can really shoot for a group. I would like to come to one of the long distance shoots to observe and learn.

    Huntin' Jokes

    Way to long without some humor. Friendship among Women: A woman didn't come home one night. The next morning she told her husband that she had slept over at a friend's house. The man called his wife's 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it. Friendship among Men: A man didn't come home one night. The next morning he told his wife that he had slept over at a friend's house. The woman called her husband's 10 best friends. Eight confirmed that he had slept over, and two said he was still there.
