ADA is anti LRH

Has anyone seen the E-mail's floating about from the ADA. Seems that they have an issue with long range hunting and are trying to have it banned.
Drop me an E-mail if your like and I will send you a copy. Makes interesting reading.

ADA stands for Australian Deer Association. A deer hunting organisation.

    I got word of this about 2 months ago Norm and it is ligit not to mention a joke how the hell do they hope to police it. It is the typical old school f witts who don't have a clue what they are talking about . Next they will ban shooting at any animal that is moving because it has a high risk of wounding . I would like to know Ada sydney branches stance on this subject also.

    On the up side norm we can now justify buying a ghillie suit and it will make shooting them so much more sniper like.

    Send me the emails you have.

    Topshot,

    Mate I just had that lengthy email turn up at work from a mutual GDSA friend,

    I have not read every word, as it is about 1000000 words long with multiple personalities having their 2 cents worth.

    I dont think there is any real theme of ADA trying to "ban it" persay, just a few in the ranks not too happy about all moves forward in technology that allow hunters to more easily hunt the game.

    Dont worry about them mate. Let them fire away. As you have seen hardly any have any idea of the concept of precision long range hunting. FACT. At best a " suggested code of conduct" might come out of it... but I even doubt that.

    I do agree that long range hunting by those who do not practise , have the right equipment and attitude is something that should be discouraged. You know the type.. 30.06 sporter " Screw a NF on top and start blasting at them at a grand " attitude. Education with this is key !

    Give me call and tell me what that guns up too !

    DUH

    You never know, some patience and education and you may help some of these folks see a different perspective, even if they don't do it themselves.

    In the latest edition of their ADA mag there is an interesting article and their views on our passion. Page 39 from memory.

    They mention 300 yards ...

    Obvoiusly not well educted on a what we are able to do or how accurate we can place our shot on a game animal.

    Some mis information in there which doesnt do any of us hunters any favours!

    Don't any members of the ADA shoot long range rifles? If they do they need to stand up to these idiots.
