Let's keep ethics out of this and focus on the thread title. An issue came up in another thread that posted a video in which the shooter missed the first shot at long range. The spotter called for a sighter shot to make adjustments and the adjustment was made which resulted in a hit. The animal, a moose, did not go down until hit once more after some time had expired. Another member commented that posting this video on the web would draw a lot of criticism from those opposed to long range hunting. Others said there was nothing wrong with posting the video as it is the real world and proper steps were taken to correct the situation. I have mixed emotions on the subject. I have been in other forums where if you even mention long range hunting the self appointed ethics police will fillet you alive. The arguments made by those who favored posting the video are valid... but... they are seen through our eyes who have knowledge and experience of the sport. Those who are against it are usually both ignorant of the sport and fundamentally against the idea of it. In my experience they do not listen to facts, experience and reason. They choose to remain ignorant. I will say that in another forum a few years back when i was one of the first ones talking about long range hunting I got a lot of heat and very little support. As time progressed more guys were talking about shooting and hunting at longer ranges. The "antis" still raise a fuss but maybe not as intensely and this past year a number of those members began construction of a 1000 yd range (In Alaska). So recently there is much more acceptance and support of long range shooting and hunting on that site. That said if you were to go post the video in question that site, it would create a huge ruckus. So, is it best to be selective in what we post or be totally open? Please keep it civil guys... remember we are all on the same side.
