So you get the same enjoyment from NY city alley rats as Big Game, assigning them the same value?


For fun, yes.

Do the best you can, know your limitations and stay inside of them, the rest is no one else's business.

I'm not criticizing the shot and it is a great deer. However, when you post what you did on a public forum, you've made it everybody's business.


Yep.

Although I am happy the OP chose not to put the post in the deer hunting forum as mayhem would ensue and I too would have gotten in line to have a kick at the cat. smile

Nice buck.

Nice looking deer, a 600 yd shot on game is nothing to sneeze at, I'd say you did very well.

FYI the shooter in question did place third at a regional long distance shoot this past month.

I couldn't agree more.

Game animals are not steel targets. A poor shot matters.

That being said, Congratulations on one unique Muley and one heck of a nice shot!!!!


First to the OP congrats, good shooting and nice buck, even with the "trash," LOL.

Personally I tend to agree with what Heavywalker said, but I also realize that is my own personal ethic, not to be confused with "ethics." And not to be imposed on anyone else. To put it another way, just because I may have tried to get closer or taken a shorter shot doesn't mean anybody else needs to think the way I do, or is in the wrong for not thinking the way I do provided they are capable of making the shot, which the OP obviously was.

It's true, game animals are not steel targets and a poor shot matters.

There was no poor shot here though.

Kind of what I was thinking, not sure how you can assign the same value to plague carrying vermin and trophy game animals. Better rethink that comment or reassess value system.

having passed thru Wibaux Montana a million times, as flat and open as it is there, 600 yds would seem like a pretty common thing around there...

if the man has the equipment and knows how to use it, I see no problem with that..

problem usually is, all too many guys don't know how to use the equipment...
