I agree, shots like this and longer are made every day, but normally at long range shoots or for practice (snipers).
I am sorry, 2 men, one calling out the numbers....distance, wind speed and direction elevation etc,, to the other in order to make a shot at an animal 1/2 mile or more away that to me is not hunting.
Like I indicated before, I am not against different forms of hunting. You want to use dogs on deer? Have a deer drive? Bait them? Stalk them? Ambush from a stand or blind, Run after them in the woods and wear out the deer like a family from Vermont, (see.. http://www.benoitsbigbucks.com/default.htm
), Use a crossbow, Shoot them in an enclosure...whatever. If its legal where you are and you want to participate go ahead! Thats hunting.
But please don't call a "snipers shot" taking two men to pull it off hunting. It is not.
