i was recently in the States visiting the girlfriend and driving here a little crazy dragging her from hunting shop to shop. after seeing how cheap everything was i ended up getting loads of reloading gear, new arrows and some camo gear. thats the first of the firsts. i have never owned camo gear and since i want to get more into bow hunting i thought that i should buckle and invested in some.(haha "invested" is my way or justifying i think)
this morning i was doing some rifle load testing and once i got home the wind had picked up and i decided it would be a good time to get out the bow and do some target practice.
i wanted to do some more load testing in the afternoon but the wind just wasnt being conducive so i thought why not try get some bunnies down at the river with the bow. i mean what better practice, stalking ranging and then shooting. perfect.
managed to get my first bunnie past 5 meters. than after a little while i though why not stretch it out a little ( i was also struggling to get close to them i bare fields.
found a bunnie at 90meters and walked in till i got to a gate at 72 meters. the bunnie had tucked down to the ground by now and wasnt going to go anywhere.
the last pin i have is 55meters. so i held at the bottom of my sight and a little into the 15km wind and let one go thwack 1foot left and a little high. the wind wasnt effecting the arrow like i thought it would. i hit windage wise where i aimed.
ok aim on and a little lower. thwack bunnie width low.
silly bunnie just sat there. ok aim higher... thwack. dead center hit
the bunnie jumped twice and that was it...
heres the distance
