View Full Version : 890 yrd shot!

Well, two good hits out of three. [xx(] I am not a fan of long distance shooting but that's just me.
I have seen the video of the shot on the coyote at over 1000 yards and how they were bragging. :( The shot did not kill the coyote instantly and was pretty inhumane. [B)]
Those are some long ass shots!
Pretty weird looking deer hunting. I like it on varmints, not sure about game. It is why some states (Colorado) have a 13 pound limit on hunting rifles.

Good shot, but with all that gear he had it is not suprising. I make 800 yard shots on the range all the time from a sandbagged rifle when we do long range work at the job, but I restrict myself to 400 yards in the woods on deer and elk. I have tagged the occaisional coyote at 600+. Of course, I also missed a coyote at about 50 when I was deer hunting this year.

Its funny that the guy is all decked out in camo yet sitting in the open trying 800 yrd shots.Not really my kind of hunting. I would prefer to get as close as possible.

20 to 30 yard bow shot. ;)[:p]:)

Wish I could still bow hunt. I love getting close enough to smell javelina and letting them have an arrow. I thought about a permit so I could use a crossbow, but it's just not the same.

Check this out! This guy puts on a class that teaches long range shooting and sells you the rifle do get the long shot. http://www.thompsonlongrange.com/
Not my kind of hunting either. I started with highpower rifles, went to bow, then pistols, muzzleloaders, etc.
The hunt is not just the kill, but the whole process from determining the hunt area, scouting, acquiring/gathering the gear, the actual hunt, and (sometimes) the kill.
If you just shoot from 890 yards, it is just target practice, not hunting...imo.
I have to agree with you Cletus. It's soo much more than the kill.

thats not hunting, its an exibition of long range shooting skills on live game.
