Long Range Shooting
By Chuck Tarinelli
When shooting game at long range, hunters have to know the distance of the animal, how much their bullet will drop at that distance and the required hold-over. They need to know their personal ability so they can decide if they can ethically shoot at that range, and the discipline to hold fire if the shot is beyond their capability. They need to practice shooting at long range. Luckily, hunters who get long range shots usually have the time to do the precise aiming that is required. Even so, the amount of time this process can take is always an important consideration. These articles will outline several techniques that can be used to make these shots as quickly and accurately as possible.
