This means disciplined stalking & positioning, as well as a prepared shooting system.
Since we don't 'need' to hunt food anymore, our hunting challenge should mean something else(like shot/kill %).
The hogwash of walking shots into steel at a mile, should not be tolerated here, much less embraced.
Mike, you gotta start somewhere. I agree, you better have the ability and be confident of it when taking a long shot on game. But while you're learning and developing loads etc., you're going to miss a few. In the mean time, you're getting trigger time and gaining proficiency and the more you practice and learn the more able you are to make that first shot.
