Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

Anyone sending a "hail mary" at a live animal has no busniss calling himself an ethical hunter. Too many variable past the 800 yard mark to shoot at live game. Target shooting okay no problem. No one will admit it, but virtually everyone I know that is a "long range hunter" has wounded and lost game becuase of a miscalculation of wind drift, lack of penetration after loss of energy, etc.

Never ceases to amaze me, how many tree huggin liberal PETA members own a gun. I think it is just so they can impose their own BS on sites like this. Why is it they feel they must "correct our morals and beliefs" ?
Now listen up boy's, stop hunting and lay down your arms. Resistance is futile, you will comply and be assimilated.
I personally have repented for every crow I shot under 200yd. Not fair chase you know.

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

The original post was asking good hunters and shooters what their longest KILL was, not wound. I am confident his intent was not to start a conversation about ethics or any other political crap. I did not start it, cpa0730jim did. It is annoying when people rob a thread to push their agenda and make other people look like cruel, thoughtless people with lower ethics than themselves. That is why I rarely post here and when I do visit to look at another fella's gun pic or see who is bragging about a phenomenal shot, I always stumble on some jerk with a mission to set everybody straight. Wake up.
See ya in a few months.

You've probably heard hunters comment before about it sounding like a war. One of these days when only 24 caliber single shots are legal it will force us all to become better hunters and shooters. In the meantime let's try not to insult our fellow hunters by calling them silly pets members. I took up archery hunting for elk a couple years ago and it is a much bigger rush shooting an elk at 15 yards than a deer at 600 yards in my opinion.?
I dont believe CPA has a point at all, his comments are a reflection of HIS hunting style that he wants to impose on everyone else. Using today's technology, a commitment to developing the necessary skills, and sufficient practice, an 800+ shot is no more difficult than a 400 yard shot was 30-40 years ago. My experience had been that most people that criticize long range hunting lack one or more of the above components; or the desire to even try it. Bringing up wounded game is a smokescreen!

Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle

Keep your ethical/nonethical comments to yourself EVERYONE. There are enough round heads trying to push their agenda's on us. If you have a problem talk to HR at your work I'm sure they could help.
