I agree on having the right tool for the right job. I have almost into my bow as my custom rifle
. I purchased a new Mathews XT and immediately shipped it to Carters Archery in MO to have it customized (crackerized). This would be equal to having Kirby or Shawn accurize your rifle. I try to shoot a min of three hours a week at 80 yards as that improves my inside game. With that being said, I have taken many nice whitetails and would never shoot beyond 35 yards. When I'm in the groove I can shoot apple size groups at 50 yards with broadheads. My opinion, deer are too quick for the string at distance, unlike my TSX.
There are many great archers who have the skill to take animals at ranges beyond what I would consider. I wont call them unethical because these men do it for a living, such as Chuck Adams. Other than the animals I took, I'm glued to the outdoor channel and study deer on arrow release and they react quickly.
I am fortunate to have a job that entitles me to take off the whole month of November to chase deer. this gives me two solid weeks of archery and I'm happy to see there is now a forum to share archery chat.
I should mention this post pertains to archery for WT and not mulies or elk with larger vitals.
