SHAME ON YOU! The worst thing hunters can do is seperate in views. We should stick together, not drive wedges between us. THAT IS WHAT ANTI-HUNTERS WANT US TO DO!!

Great shot GG. That also was a very articulate defense of long range hunting. I've done some 1000 yard benchrest shooting, and it is truly amazing the accuracy that is possible at that range ... even with factory rifles. A good friend of mine has shot 5" groups at 1000 yards with a bone stock, scoped Swedish Mauser.
I agree with your point that we hunters need to stick together, but even further, I think we shooters need to stick together. I can't count the number of times I've heard hunters say nobody needs an AR-15/M1A/Ak-47 or other "assault weapon". Or they say people should not be allowed to carry concealed. So often we seem to get tunnel vision and look askew at others involved in discplines other than our own. Basically it comes down to issues of freedom and responsibility.
