Default A note about Public Rifle ranges should be made..

I would bet that most of us don't have access to a Rifle range that provides us with over 200 yard shooting. The Military ranges are fantastic and I love shooting at them but they are not available to everyone. I have access to a great gunclub here in MN, we are fortunate to have a very nice separate 200 yard range. I think we are the only one around for probibly an hour drive that the public has access to. I would hope that hunters don't make a habbit of shooting at a distance that they haven't actually practiced at. I have hunted out west and it is very easy to be offered a long shot. The problem is that it better not be the first time a shooter is firing at that distance. The animal deserves better....
