When isnt it hunting anymore ?
When you sit in front of the TV or BSing down at the local gun store instead of getting out there and spend time trying to fill tags!
Wasted time arguing about what the best way to hunt is, do what works for ya! The main thing is to get-r-done and have fun doing it

Re: When isnt it hunting anymore ?

It is all hunting, regardless of range. When I go on a hunting trip I am preparred to take a short or a long shot to harvest the animal I have a tag for.

If I come home empty handed I don't tell the neighbors I was on a sniping trip.

The association of our sport with sniping rifles is one we should not foster. It's just like the use of the word "weapon" for a hunting rifle, I don't call a fork a weapon even though it can be used as one.

Maybe the author just ain't got what it takes to kill effectively at longrange...I don't know. But, I do know this I don't like these threads as in fosters infighting and the left loves that...concentrate the fight on them. Damn.

"When isnt it hunting anymore?"

When the thrill is gone. Hunt smart whether it is close or long, **** can go wrong either way.

Re: When isnt it hunting anymore ?

I fail to see how sitting in a heated blind and shooting a deer with a gun shot 2-3 times all year at 40 yards is more "hunting" than packing my butt 8 miles back into the wilderness through a foot of snow carrying everything on my back over 2000 ft elevation changes and shooting one at 550 yards with a rifle I ran 100+ rounds of ammo through over the year to prepare for that one shot.

Those outside LRH don't understand the preparation required. I'll leave it at that to keep Len in the holiday mood ;)

Re: When isnt it hunting anymore ?

To me their is nothing more enjoyable than setting up for a long range shot and have it to work out . I guess my favorite would be sniping something about the sniping scenario makes me warm and fuzzy on the inside. In the end anyway I can bag a trophy is hunting to me as long as it's legal!
