emcon5, there is lots of reason hunting short or long yardage not to take a shot for any number of reason that can be called unethical. does it bother you as much if short yardage shot may be unethical.
I'm not trying to pick a fight with you I've passed on more short yardage shots than I have on LR hunting deer/elk. You are right on LR yardage and effect it has but it will also happen at short yardage. Bad shot is a bad shot doesn't matter which yardage and one you never want to happen.
