High Country Shooters forum?

Last night while on MCR's website, he had a link to precisionlongrangehunter.com and I used to be a member of that forum and I recall Ric Horst was the owner/host. I hope I'm not out of line asking about this on LRH, but it defaulted to high country shooters.

The layout looked the same from what I remember. Is this Ric's site?

Interesting. I guess I live in the dark a bit. Are there other sites that are geared mainly about long range hunting or extreme long range?

Well, when I first learned of this site, it was within a year or so that I found another site and it was called something like PRECISIONLONGRANGEHUNTER.COM

To the best of my knowledge, there must have been something negative happen on this or another site between "Ric" and the other site owner so Ric started his own long range hunting forums. It seemed to get a slow start and like many of us, we stuck to the forums that got a lot of traffic to get questions answered, so I kept up with the other forums I frequented but still checked in with precisionlongrangehunter.com

After having a go at it for some time, I think Ric shut down his website for unknown reasons to me. My guess is that it was slow with traffic. I want to say I remember him coming back here but haven't seen any posts.

In fact, I have been away for long periods of time but I'm in the last year of 3 on a task I've been working on so during Christmas break I started up on the forums again and have yet to slip away but that is coming soon.

I tend to log in and read mostly but have been posting more lately.

Here's an article about Ric

7mm WSM -- High-Country Hunter

Curiously when you google Ric Horst you get this:

Quote:
Ric Horst: Chris Matthews and I were invited to help out with a new hunting show on a cable network. We wanted to showcase a rifle that wasn't typical for the TV ...
I thought Ric was informative and I hoped his site gained members.

Not sure what you mean by "stuff."

Guys that are shooting past 1000 on a regular basis and looking to share tactics, and experiences with all involved. Both hunting and target. I have come to believe that there are definate differences between shooting to 800 and 1800 and there are things that dont work for both.

I do read some on the snipershide ELR forum. but looking for something different. I am mostly into long range hunting and also ELR to well past a mile. I have talked to the admin here about an ELR forum but it is still in the deciding stages.
