Re: im bored!! whats next?
It's surprising that living Alberta you can't find some great long range hunting. I live in the armpit of the US(New England) and have hunted Alberta for the last 10+ years for my long range shooting (about 3 hours out of Edmonton mostly). The trophy quality of the deer can't be bettered anywhere in North America. The mulie in my ID was shot there and was first observed at over 1000 yards. Had to get closer because of wind conditions though and took him at 440 yards, 193" typical. But I have had no shortage of challenging long range hunts and good kills from Wainwright to Grand Prarie. If I'm lucky enough to fill my tags early, I can shoot at the huge population of coyotes at any range. I don't blame you for getting bored shooting paper and gongs. It does become very static, I went through the same thing. The shift to long range hunting is a totally different ball game and will humble the very best of the LR target shooters. One successful killing shot on a 10" vital area, under varied conditions, shooting positions, and a good animal at 1000+ yards that doesn't hang from a steel frame is as challenging as it gets. In my opinion, I'm likely to die of old age before I get bored.
