we've all read this type of debate. my question for these "get the game close" guys much skill does it take, to kill a deer, at 60 yards, with a modern centerfire rifle. most of the time they're in a blind or treestand and the deer comes walking by. i understand archery is a different story. but most deer are shot under 100 yards with a scoped rifle from a stationary position. not much hunting skill involved in my opinion.

Everyone is intiled to their own oppenion, but when hunters start tearing down others style of hunting they are only giveing ammo to anti hunting groups. Yes it is simple to take an animal that is within the max. point blank range of the gun and alot of people think that getting as close as you can to the animal befor you take it is what hunting is all about. Others think that takeing game at long ranges is where the changle is. I have no problem with that as long as the hunters stay within the range that they can kill effectively. With a good range finder and wind meter a 500 yrd. shot on a deer is not that hard if you know your weapon and practice alittle. To go to the field with a .30-30 with iron sights and start shooting at a deer at that range definately would not be sprotsman like though.
