Oh I totally agree Don. You know me by now. I've never condoned those long range shots on game. In fact I rarely ever get the chance to do any real quality varmit hunting anymore. Got a .220 Swift at the back of my gun safe that gets brought out a few times per year for some long range paper target shooting from a bench, that's about it. I just think that somehow some hunters today have gotten it in their heads that they need to take those long shots, and I just don't know where that idea comes from. I blame it all on TV and crafty marketing by optics, ammo, and rifle companies too.
You and ChesterGolf have spoken correctly.
