Re: Tennessee Long Range Hunting

LR hunters are funny. Most hunters try and get closer. LRers are always trying to get further away.lol

Re: Tennessee Long Range Hunting

About ten minutes after that picture was made I let a 3 1/2 year 8 point cross the track without shooting him. He was only 200 yards away. Now if he had of been over 500 yards I would have taken the shot. There's no joy in chip shots any more.

Actually here in Texas we call those railroad tracks as well HA!

In your part of the world short of setting up on an actual road that probably is about the best LR opportunity you'll get though unless you can find a pipeline right of way.

Re: Tennessee Long Range Hunting

As an old Tennessee boy myself I can relate. They took our tracks up 1966. I miss the train tracks, it was always good huntn. Now they have grown over.Old Indian trick put your ear to the track. LOL but not your tung when it is cold LOL. I use to have a 1000 yard field but now they put an interstate down the middle of it and cut ii in half.

Re: Tennessee Long Range Hunting

I have sat on some decommissioned tracks in the NY adirondacks . 15 years ago there was a bunch of benchrest shooters who had a bench on the tracks and would shoot deer way out there with benchrest guns. Never actually saw them doing it but my father in law knew a few of them, he said they made some impressive shots.
