I,like most everyone else here like long range hunting,and shooting. For me longrange can mean 40 yds ,in the spring woods chaseing old tom turkey, ( although I never have shot at one that far ), I like getting them close. A hundered yards or more in the fall collecting venision,can be mighty fun, or 30 yd shots at bushy tails. It all started for me with a worn-out Stevens Favorite .22. I've progressed?, to larger guns and longer ranges, but its never been any more fun than takeing a crack at whistle pigs a hundered or more yds away with that old Stevens Favorite, and watching the dust roll up. Enuff of that , looks like you have a nice forum here,interestin and informative. Nice meeting you all.
