Let's not go down this road...again...for the umpteenth time.

A man's got to know the limitations of his knowledge, understanding, experience, judgement and gear and his ability to apply it effectively, accurately and with precision in a given situation. That's the answer. No arbitrary limitations. End of story.

"A man's got to know the limitations of his knowledge"

A man can have ALL THE KNOWLEDGE required and if that were so THAT MAN would have to admit that each and every facet of ballistic computations can be done correctly, yet the shot can still go wrong....and if not admitted...then THAT MAN is nothing but a major 'smoke-blower'!!

I said that because your comment is clearly encompassed within my statement and so I and most here should agree with what you said. That's pretty common knowledge. Sometimes things don't go as planned, but that can happen with any shot.

Len created this place in part to have discussions about LRH, but not about 'ethics' so called. Perhaps he'll chime in here and shut this down, I don't know. This is supposed to be a place where we can learn from each other and not get denigrated for 'shooting too far'.

From 'Rules & FAQ':

This board was created for the expressed purpose of discussing the methods, equipment and techniques of Long Range Hunting without the burden of discussing or debating ethics. Although we all individually have ethics and limitations on what we consider correct, WE DO NOT discuss, nor will we tolerate, discussions of ethics on this site. We are here to learn and share methods, techniques and equipment ideas. This web site and all related or referenced materials and links are solely and strictly for informational purposes. Moreover, this web site is intended solely for the dissemination of information for lawful purposes to Long Range Hunters. The individuals who maintain or contribute written material to the web site known as Long Range Hunting take no responsibility, nor will they be held liable in any way, for unlawful acts that are claimed to have been "inspired" by, motivated by, or suggested by anything presented at this web site. You, as a visitor to this web site, are warned that you, and you alone, are responsible for your own actions at all times, and that you will be held responsible for any unlawful acts you perform.
