Re: What the heck?

Mike,

Don't feel bad at all! Have you seen them shoot or try to explain "shooting" techniques on their show, it is a joke. They have more bad placed shots at 100 yards then you will ever have at 1000. Remember, those who can't complain!

Re: What the heck?

Mike you have to remember that probably over 90% of the guys on the other forums are barely capable of shooting a 4 inch group off a bench at 100 yards; so to them the thought of even attempting something you did is IMPOSSIBLE. In their minds it is unethical because for them it would be!

When my local range finally built a 300 yard setup it was amazing how many people who had shot deer "at 4-500 yards" couldn't even hit a 3 foot square piece of steel from a bench rest.

We all know you put the time into getting ready for your hunt and you were obviously more than capable of making the shot. I loved reading your story and can't wait till I have a set up that will let me make it into the next level of long ranging.

Re: What the heck?

Great shot,Mike. I'm green with envy. Banning you on the other forum is their loss. Too many folks think that the sun rises and sets with the likes of the Eastman's. You know, they put their pants on one leg at a time....just like everyone else.

Re: What the heck?

These people, should realize that they are doing more to damage our sport than the anti's will ever do! Divide and conquer!!! Pick yor challenge and skill set. Spend one hour on this site reading about the intense attention to detail and precision of thought behind the procees of a long range shot and even a novice would conclude that there is a greater chance of a clean kill being made at long range by many here, than those people making a 300 yard kill. I'd put my money on Mike every time! A 60yard shot with a bow was considered unethical in the 70's. It's called technological development. They better wake up!

Re: What the heck?

Mike I've learned over the years that if I've made everybody happy I need to re-think my position. I gave up on Eastman's a long time ago, RMEF, local wildlife council etc.. One hell of a lot of sins of omission from most of them. Money better spent elsewhere.
Anyway before I get wound up, nice shot, nice buck. You taped the shot-put tape to horns and let us know.
