"Yes, that's right Tom..."

Neil and I got crossed up on this a few days ago. When shooting wildlife I generally choose an aperture for a full-sized image. The distance depends on the size of the quarry, and what it does; to a lesser extent what I do. There's often little opportunity to adjust aperture "on the fly" (think BIF). Capturing the same scene allows you to open up by one stop with DX. A better way to put it would be to say that you're more likely to have the correct DOF if you use the DX crop as a deliberate strategy.

P.S. Sorry, I missed your first question: https://www.nikonians.org/forums/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=226&topic_id=37513&mesg_id=37513&page=2
Bill is pretty careful with his facts.
