To the long range hunting community, You know who you are the serious long range hunter. The guy who gears up and persues game at long distance. Never have I met such a great group of people. My wife while she is a 3 gun competitor, she is not a hunter, let alone a long range hunter. She is a high speed action shooter and really does not get long range shooting or hunting. I have tried to explain draw to her but get the " I just don't get it " look only a wife can give. I have come to realized in trying to explain our position that LRH guys are just a different breed. We look at equipment different. We look at shooting techniques differently. We look at a hunting area and see a totally different area than most. We look across a canyon where the first thing we see is a 6 MOA wind and slight thermal up, everyone else says it is simply windy. We look across a flat and see heat mirage and think " probably only be able to use 10x or so out here" everyone else says it is just hot. Most look across a canyon at a big bull elk at "over half a mile" and start looking for a route to take to get there, we see an elk at 864 yards and cuss ourselves for not having a 338 EDGE on this hunt. Ballistics are not a random campfire subject they are serious business and the very life blood of the LRH guy. So in explaining all this to her, I come to the conclusion that the LRH guys are my people. I know what frustrates you. I know the joys of your successes. When you cannot sleep at night I know what keeps you awake. I know what you really want santa to leave under the tree. I know what you see when you drive down the road that no one else does. So again thanks for being who you are.
