I've been reading all the old posts since I found this website a week ago. Something that suprised me was the use of spotting shots during big game hunting. Seems like a viable option for those really long range shots when distance and wind are unknown. Athough it's been mentioned a lot I haven't seen many details. Seems to me if the wind is in your face you could be pretty close and get away with it. But on a calm day how well does it work without spooking the game. Anybody have any real world stories to share?
