    Hey, I wouldn't belly ache about that.

    The idea is to bring the meat/trophy home. If you can do it from 529 yards then so be it.

    If I have a choice between a 529 and a 1100 yd shot, I bet I'd take the 529 yard'r every time.

    But sometimes, around here, you can see 'em at 1K and can't get any closer for a shot. Then ya have to hump your butt to keep the meat from spoiling. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Yep up here in the north we shoot em so far away we have taken to putting salt on our bullets. The salt keeps the meat from spoiling until we can get there.
    If you believe that one please come up to Canada for a hunt I am sure we could have some fun with you.

    If you can't shoot the yardage you love, then love the yardage you shoot.
