459 Yard Buck - and the founding of LRH.com

Quote:
In 1997 I posted this story on a couple of forums or "newsgroups" and was absolutely hammered for being a good-for-nothing idiot to think that it is acceptable to shoot big game at long distances. (459 yards isn't even really very long, is it?). It was the first time I had tried to have a conversation about long range hunting on the internet.

After a couple of frustrating years I decided to start my own website to provide a sanctuary of sorts where like minded LRH proponents could safely discuss their passion.

Ten years ago, in April of 2001, LongRangeHunting.com was established. Today we have over 33,000 registered members and 260,000 different visitors each month.Read More...

    It takes only one man with an idea and determination to bring it to fruition and trials of life that make it possible.

    Len, you done good!
