EXACTLY. He doesn't care about what's good for our sport, just what's good for him. I never thought much of him before the whole "terrorist gun" thing anyways.

Re: Jim Zumbo

I don't know what he considers long range but I saw him about to take around a 400 yard shot on his TV show. he passed on the animal but not because of the range. I suppose to some degree this action would make him a hypocrite as well.

Tons of people view this mans show. I find it very disappointing that someone in a position to spread positive words (publicly and nation wide) about hunting and shooting would take these actions/stands. So what if ARs or long range isn't your cup of tea, why would you attempt to ruin these things for the very people who share a passion for these sports in general. Why put things in others heads? A persons thoughts and energy could be put to so much better use!

Re: Jim Zumbo

Does Dumbo still have a blog somewhere, or has he learned to stay off the net?

Personally I wish he remained the red headed step child.

Looks like they muzzled him, for now at least. I agree whole heartedly with you coyboy. The hunting and shooting community doesn't need him. I'm glad I asked the question because I had no idea.

Re: Jim Zumbo

Maybe it is time to contact his current sponsors with the bashing of long range hunting. If the anti's are able to grab ahold and run with anything that would benifit them, that was supposedly coming from someone that is apparently respected (i dont know why) in the industry, they WILL do it. We've already seen that. If we only speak out amongst ourselves we will not accomplish anything.
Giving the anti's any foothold or toehold for that matter will only make it tougher for us to continue our sport in an open manner, especially with the new administration forthcoming.
