Hunting with Scoped Rifles

History

 

Hunting with rifles has been around almost since the beginning of when rifles were made themselves. However, hunting with scoped rifles didn't come around until just after the scopes were designed and attached to the rifles. These scopes vastly increased the ability to hit targets at a long distance accurately. In the early 1900's hunting with sniper rifles began to flourish as the weapon and scope technology began to become better and better. The bow and arrow now became very obselete and so less and less people used them. The earliest of hunting rifles used flint lock technology and then moved on to a repeating rifle and finally to the bolt action scoped rifle of today. Overall, hunting with scoped rifles has revolutionized how people hunt today and made it that much more difficult for the prey to survive.
