Cut The Distance.

KUDOS TO DAVID DRAPER FOR "AGAIN, HALF AS LONG" IN THE OCTOBER ISSUE. IT IS A CONCISE AND WELL-WRITTEN BIT OF ADVICE. I RECALL PASSING A 350-YARD SHOT AT A MULE DEER BUCK AND EVENTUALLY KILLING HIM AT40 YARDS.THE EXCITEMENT OF THAT HOUR STALK IS STILL PALPABLE.THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 350 AND 40 IS A LOT MORE THAN JUST YARDAGE. THANK YOU.

Mr. Arnold,

I appreciate the kind words regarding my recent "Editor's Letter" It really came to mind for me a few weeks ago when I had a grizzly bear in my scope at 200 yards. Instead of taking him then, I cut the distance to just 74 yards. Talk about a thrill. I hope more hunters heed my advice this fall.

Thanks for being a loyal reader of the magazine.
