    Thanks to ICANHITHIMMAN for pointing me in this direction. I'm a hunter (mostly bow and muzzle loader) and a distance precision shooter but would love to gain more knowledge in hunting long range...though I'll probably have to go somewhere other than Western PA.

    Thanks for a place to hang my hat.

    Bowhunter you didnt mention that make sure you check out www.longrangebowhunting.com as well. I'm sure some of the PA guys like Kevin Cram and Joel Russo will or can point you to some good hunting areas for long range hunting.

    Bow hunting is really my first love in terms of hunting but I prefer to hunt on the ground as opposed to in a tree.

    That said its time to try something new. Hunting the Rockies is my next goal.

    My brother and I are huge bow hunters as well, he has taken to making stick bows latley and I think in the last 3 months he must have made 100 of them. The one he made for me is less than 2 feet long and powerfull ass hell.

    Your in the right place for hunting no matter if you use a rifle or not as long as its at long range:D. We have outfitters here and lots of guys who can help you do a hunt cheep with their guidence.

    Rocky just put togher our first group long range antalope hunt with Tyler Simms. We are waiting for their storys.

    My brother-in-law (closest thing I have to a brother) go out, he's up in Vermont and I'm down here. He's gotten into making longbows lately.

    Antelope with Tyler Simms? Awesome I love Wyoming. I actually attend a precision shooting school out there. LRI. Capped more than a few prairie dogs while I was at it...love a little practical application. :)
