Now his post is deleted! What a chicken!! In case youre wondering what he said......

[ QUOTE ]
All that shows me is lack of respect for the game.

They use does and cow elk as "practice". Thats a total lack of respect for wildlife.

There is no reason to shoot does and cows at extreme range. I think they could use a little practice all right...how about practicing some stalking skills and shooting antlerless game at reasonable ranges?

Their equipment and dedication to shooting is unquestionable...their lack of regard for wildlife is also unquestionable.

There is no question they wound a lot of game. Too many variables when you shoot long range...I dont care how much you practice or how careful you are.

Its also fair to note on their video, a bunch of the people who shoot stuff at those extreme ranges have spent very little time behind the rifle they're shooting. In at least 2-3 cases, they brag about how they'd just shot the rifle for the first time the day before.

WHOA!!!

RELAX GUYS!

I think JB is in our camp. His post might have been a little difficult to decipher but I think he's pointing at another site and saying """ These guys are nitwits and THEY are attacking John Burns and long range hunting! ""

He's (JB OF MD) not attacking us or longrangehunting.

(edited... I got the handle incorrect.)

Yeah Dave, that's me.
I wouldn’t think of posting a link to here....from there.
Wouldn’t want to trash this fine site with the nay-Sayers.
I deleted the post....feel free to delete the thread.
Sorry if I’ve caused any inconvenience.

JB

I think your initial post was a little confusing and we took off on a crusade prematurely.

I do sort of agree with your reluctance to post a link to here as I believe we'd receive a little grief from some travelers.

From now on be real careful how you word these things... It don't take much to get our hair up on some issues and a little confusion causes a lot of stress sometimes.

I agree that everyone in this thread is here for the benefit of this site. My post in red was confirming that I was ranting about a few of the members on the other sites yackings.

Thats all. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
