Len is considering this for us now as we talked about it last week.

That would be one way to get me to shut up. If I had anything to say it would be "Ooooohhh...........I want to do that!" Haha.

I agree. Been on this site for over 8 years and the overall quality of true long range discussions seems to be declining as an overall percentage of discussions or at least many discussions are diluted by posts that don't really have in mind what long range hunting might mean or is all about due to lack of knowledge/experience or a philosophical bent (most often also due to lack of knowledge and experience in lr) and then the fur starts to fly...and for little reason.

Would sure like to see an ELR forum to hopefully (re)focus many discussions here. Might be helpful.

Would also like to see the above mentioned poll reset so that folks could go back and change their 'longest shot on big game kill'. It might be that the percentages would change a bit.

Just a suggestion or two.

Guys who start threads like this should be banned.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Yet it produces 11 pages of discussion (regardless of quality). I wish some of my threads would gain 11 page of discussion...regardless of quality haha
