I have a couple of gripes with the long range hunting shows. There seems to be a preponderance of them lately. It tends to make people who have never practiced at over a hundred yards or from field conditions think that it is OK to take extreme long shots. I am not criticizing those who have put in their time to learn the art.
Secondly the theme of some of those shows is just long range shots at animals. They never try to get closer, nor do they show them taking an animal they happen on at 50 yards. It is the current emphasis on long range hunting that I object to.
