Wondering if it\'s for me I have become curious about long range hunting and would like to get some input from people involved directly. I have only been shooting mid-range( I think) for varmints and have always tried for close, one shot kills on big game. Most shots for me have been 350 and less. Deer and Elk have all been close. My question is about the thrill of it. I get my thrill (so far) from trying to get close and am wondering if you people get excited by a long range shot or is it the challenge of the distance that stirs you? I have shot out to 1000 in the military but worry about wounding animals. In the service a wounded human is usually better than a dead one as a wounded man attracts more targets. Could some of you discuss the thrill, challenge, and wounding issues? I haven't lost an animal yet but I also realize from reading some of the posts that there is more equipment involved and placing the shot actually may be no different than match shooting. How do you feel? I'm not trying to ruffle feathers but more trying to decide if this suits me before spending $$$$$.
