Idk all this high tech shooting takes the hunt out of it. I know I have a tracking point 338 anyone could hit a elk or wildebeest at 1000. For me it's all about the hunt so I'd say get close and get hunting. I certainly can respect others who feel differently.One of our hunting group has bought a 300 WM to take long shots. He is an excellent shot, but is it 'right' to take a long shot at an animal when you could have got closer? Is there a sensible upper limit that hunters should adhere to? Do, or even should powerful optics excuse fieldcraft?
