One other thing, I don't need a lecture from you on stalking speed goats. I've done it plenty. If you've spent much time antelope hunting you darn well know that in some circumstances you will never get near a goat. There is no using terrain when there is no terrain to use or you are limited by boundaries. In cases like that it's nice to be able to make the long shot. The first buck goat I ever shot I snuck up to within 15 yds using terrain. But there's been plenty others that where way out on a flat that would have seen you half a mile away or more.

Just because someone does the long range thing does not mean they are not a hunter.

I just hung up my bow a short bit ago tonight. Last shot 80 yrds in a 4 3/4 '' butter lid, now thats long range. Im sure lots on this site do both, most of my buds that I grew up with do. I have taken half my game with a bow, but it takes alot for the long shot to all come together also, Im more of a hike then set up type,but animals dont always cooperate. I like all the chances to hunt

I like bow hunting and the reason I also like long range hunting is because of the challange of it plus I think making long shots is pretty cool. I have several friends who like both long range hunting and bow hunting... so to make the general statement, "Most switch to LR because they dont want to stalk,they want to sit and shoot" is just plain BS. Most guys I know didn't switch, they do both.

I don't care what you use either if you go back and read me my posts. Just talk about it in the appropriate forums. Ya get it?
Didnt get anything from you but a poor attitude and a wanna b moderator issue,get it?
If it is not fairchase its foul
