Yes, the fact that I am into benchrest shooting is correct. I would have to say that I am still new at this end of shooting as well- just came across a bit of luck. I have participated in 3 of the Iowa 1000 yard bench rest competitions this year.
As far as the hunting goes, I guess I'm "paying my dues." Seems that I haven't really had any shots to take at the few deer we have seen so far. Of course the fact that other oblivious hunters drive around like it is not deer season may have a small part in this as well!!
I am more than interested in hearing others' advice, opinions and again, learning all that I can from other hunters/shooters...
