Re: ethics?

ethics is the one thing that we are in complete control of, i have bowhunted for almost fifty years and for myself no i would never try a 100yd shot at a live target,but i will not tell another what his ethical shot distance should be,i will say in my experience a lot of archers cannot consistently hit a paper plate at 50 yds [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: ethics?

Well, it appears this thread title got changed!

Ethics is a difficult topic, and one that should be closely followed by all hunters.

While some would have ethics be a static line, the truth is that line moves depending on some circumstances. In hunting, one of those circumstances is hunter skill.

For instance, I would not try to take a deer past 20 yards with a bow, or 250 yards with a rifle. Those are my ethical ranges.

But I have watched video of bowhunters drop deer at 3 times that range. The kills were quick and every bit as ethical as any 20 yard shot I might take.

I have watched video of Shawn Carlock dropping a deer or elk at 950 yards, the kill was quick and ethical by any standard I might employ.

In hunting, at least, the line moves!


The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
