    I stand by what I said: 500+ yard shots are not fair chase. And that's not just my opinion; here's the Boone & Crockett Club statement on fair chase:

    FAIR CHASE, as defined by the Boone and Crockett Club, is the ethical, sportsmanlike, and lawful pursuit and taking of any free-ranging wild, native North American big game animal in a manner that does not give the hunter an improper advantage over such animals.
    - Knows and obeys the law, and insists others do as well
    - Understands that it is not only about just what is legal, but also what is honorable and ethical
    - Defines "unfair advantage" as when the game does not have reasonable chance of escape
    - Cares about and respects all wildlife and the ecosystems that support them, which includes making full use of game animals taken
    - Measures success not in the quantity of game taken, but by the quality of the chase
    - Embraces the "no guarantees" nature of hunting
    - Uses technology in a way that does not diminish the importance of developing skills as a hunter or reduces hunting to just shooting
    - Knows his or her limitations, and stretches the stalk not the shot
    - Takes pride in the decisions he or she makes in the field and takes full responsibility for his or her actions

    For me chasing wild pigs with a 22 mag and hunting yes hunting deer on public land brings more satisfaction than a right of way and a box stand. I’m bringing up my boys to recognize sign and how to set up on it taking wind and entrance into account. I can say that I am one who does hunt and not shoot. Most game is within 50 yards so it’s up close and personal
