Re: What resources should I use to prepare for long range hunting?
Gayle McMillan put out an article on Wind and Mirage Reading. These two factors kick more peoples Ass's than just about *ANY* other set of factors when the range extends out past about 800 or so. But, yeah, as others have said, find a place to shoot. Alot. Get a known good rifle system, I would suggest either a fast twist (for heavy bullets) .223, or a .308, depending on your level of comfort shooting ect. Learn to read the wind and mirage, learn to "shoot the rainbow", and most of all, Have Fun!
Come to think of it, I would almost bet Some One on here has that article, and maybe 1 or 2 others.
