I feel exactly the same as Boyd feels and others here have also expressed the same feelings since the format changed.
I have been on LR hunting since the beginning 3 years ago and "if" I have helped anyone along the way I am very satisfied with that. That's the "only" reason I came on when asked by Len to do so.
Since the forum administrators have decided to eleminate the "Competition section" and also the "Ultra Long-range" section, I don't feel it is a "true combined" Longrange hunting forum any longer.
It has been a pleasure posting and I think I'm just at the age where I don't feel I want to post here any longer or take any crap from anyone who has not walked in my shoes over the past 25 plus years.
I have been longrange hunting longer then "some" here began shooting their BB guns.
I have nothing to prove to anyone and have done most everything I set out to do in the Longrange hunting fields and mountains across this country.
If any of you run into me in Colorado or Pennsylvania your welcome to set up your bigeye optics and glass the far terrain along with me. You can even shoot my rifle if you find an animal you want and we will make sure you kill the game cleanly.
I may place an ad or two here but, this forum and posting on it does not interest me any longer since it has been changed, thanks again to the administrators and owner of the site.
Good luck and good shooting to all.
Keep watching, there may be another site coming in the future which will be dedicated to "true longrange and ultra longrange hunting and competitive 1000 yard shooting."
