Shooting animals at 1000 yards takes no hunting skill. They are just shooters.
There is one hunting skill that trumps all others........... The ability to hit what you aim at. Doesn't make any difference if it's 10 yards, a 100 or a 1000. Without that HUNTING SKILL you buy your meat. You practice the skills that you want, they practice the skills they want. One is no better than the other.
