Default Longest Hunting Trip?

What is the longest distance you have traveled to go hunting?

In my case, it was last October when I traveled 5,000 miles to get to Iceland to hunt ducks and geese.

That would be 7,500 miles if it were a straight non-stop flight.

It seem like you have your priorities in order.

well family is really the whole reason to go there and not argentina. i could stay down there for a couple of months hunt all the time and not stay in a hotel the whole time i just need to learn spanish before i go down there again (i went for a month in 4th grade). i am the only person in my immediate family that cannot sit down and have a conversation in spanish. being able to do that would make freelancing down there much easier!

You don't need no stinking Spanish! Just demand that everyone there speak the English to you and don't forget to demand that you get a drivers license, free health care, and voting rights. Also none of their laws apply to you unless it's to your advantage.
