Default Since Firediver is out hog hunting...

I thought I might try to fill the "Are you kidding me!" video gap

This guy takes a 1011 yard shot at an antelope.

No kidding.

why would some one try that,the smallest mistake and you could have a wounded animal running around.

That's a great demonstration on knowing your weapon but is that hunting? After my observations of antelope being able to be accurate on a longer shot is probably needed but this the extreme, not many can understand how to shoot this good.

There are a couple of "hunting" shows on now that I refuse to watch. All these shows do is make the everyday Joe think HE can shoot some of these distances also. More wounded and unrecovered animals will be the result.

The one and only time I've been out west so far was to hunt antelope. I don't think that the wind dropped below 15-18 miles per hour the whole time i was out there! So many other factors that could play a big part.

I myself don`t believe in long range shooting like that .... IT IS CALLED HUNTING NOT SNIPING FOR A REASON..

You know I like long range TARGET shooting, I think that it is fun, BUT I have never been a fan of long range hunting, the way I see it, is the closer I am the better.
