My boss was firmly anti long range hunting, to the point he told me anything over 300yrds is just flinging lead and he wouldn't ever hunt with anyone who did it. One day I took my rifle in and showed him, he realized it is set up a little different so I got him out to the range and set up my gun for him. He saw first hand that when set up right taking everything into consideration that good first shot hits are not flinging lead.
He shot all the way out to 1000yrd pounding the gongs and dialing, with help but he is now firmly behind the ethics of longrange hunting, just taking the time to show a guy and let him see what it actually is makes a big difference, let the gun do the talking goes a long ways to help guys understand the difference between lead slingers and LRH, I'm far from being good at LRH but even I with patience can contribute to how this way of hunting is precieved by those aroung me. We all can!!
Nobody really says it but I really like the shot and the kill, I don't really care how big it is, mosly how it will taste. I enjoy being out but I am there to make a kill and I do enjoy the kill, some don't think that is really hunting but I'm more in the mind set that the kill is my pay of for good hunting. I really like LRH for the time it affords you to glass the game and really study what is going on in that moment then setting up the shot and planning for the shot then making the shot that you have chosen and making a clean kill with a well place bullet. I find LRH has the same thrill and skills needed as bow hinting and I love both
