This discussion is strictly talking about things that one person believes can hurt LRHing if things are not done properly just like anything else that might affect hunting itself and not anything against LRHing when done properly. I think the latter is what the "don't talk ethics" in the site rules refers to and I didn't bring up the .243 in this thread, but merely repsonded to a post like a couple others also did. Maybe I'm wrong and if it's a rules violation a Mod is free to delete them. PS: IMHO any time a discussion is about what caliber to use to do the job properly, especially at distance, it could easily be considered an ethics discussion. Therefore, it's a little on the vague side as to just exactly what isn't allowed.
IMHHO, the bottom-line is end-user (regardless of experience and skill level, equipment used, personal ethics, etc ...) has the ultimate responsibility of their actions and must face all the consequences associated with it.
I don't think it's a rules violation but rather on of those unwritten rules that most LRH old timers (with all due respect and no pun intended) understood and live by.
Nope, I'm nowhere near the capabilities that most LRH members are at. We have varying equipment, experiences, skills, personal preferences, ethics, etc ..., and I think it's great and respectfully admire the differences --- and for that I'm thankful as I am constantly learning.
931 yards is the farthest I have harvested a game and hope to extend that in due time - practice, practice, practice.
