I went back and checked my uncle's genealogy book after I wrote you last week.
One reason Elisha was called the "Long Hunter" was because he was kind of a circuit-trapper who would be gone from home for months at a time. Thus, "Long Hunter" referred at least in part to the fact that he hunted for a long time.
Just another interesting interpretation for you to consider.
