Yup, the D-2 Extreme in ballistic nylon.
But back to hunting distance.
A Hunter does thier best to stalk as close to the game as possible in order to ensure a proper harvest. The goal is to put food on someone's table. Therefore the longer the distance to target the more precise the marksmanship must be, and the less stalking skill is required.
Paper target shooters attempt to hone thier marksmanship skills to levels beyond any practical game harvesting in quest of competition. Basic marksmanship skills are a prerequisite to hunting with a firearm, so one goes with the other.
Now what about the Eradicators? If your not harvesting game for the table, are you a Hunter or a Shooter? I can tell you that prairie dog stew isn't as good on my palate as squirrel stew. So P-Dog shooting is far less interesting than squirrel hunting. Although nowadays squirrel hunting has ended except for the introduction of Grandchildren to the lessons of field to table. Wild hog hunting now supplies table fare for the homeless or indigent, I've lost my taste for the gamier side of pork. Plus the last time I ate any dog was on a stick in PI. So I've no desire to hunt coyotes. There is just a little venison sausage left in the freezer, so more of my efforts are devoted to harvesting venison than all the other critters still out in the field. The desire to Eradicate anything left me long ago with the end of obligated service. So you won't glean allot of info about eradication from me.
So what do Y'all think is more important while hunting, how close or how far?
