    I agree that it's not ethical, yes the shots can be made, I have friends that shoot LR and push "Nightforce" and "Trijicon" on me, too expensvie for my blood. I am of the opinion that the longe range business is just that, a business, its probably a blast shooting and hitting targets that far out, but it seems to me that a majority of the hunt is missing with this type of approach. I also believe in freedom of choice and would never push my opinion on others, but strongly believe that the stalk is just as satisfying, if not more, than a kill.

    Havent been impressed with BOTW. I have a friend that guided for them last spring, it aired last week i believe, spring bear hunt in western montana. He said he wasnt impressed with how they reacted to shooting animals, and that they even wounded a bear and didnt want to track it.

    If you have practiced and CAN make the shot, then it's ethical. If you can't make a good shot at 100 yards, then that's too far. "Ethical" shot distance is different for every shooter. I don't shoot 1,000 at anything, but I have better things to do than to run down those that can and do. It's legal. They enjoy it. They put meat in the freezer and antlers on the wall to enjoy. More power to them. It's OK if we don't all hunt the same way.
