50,40, and 30-yd. prairie dog kills

Went out yesterday and got 3 out of about 20 shots with my new system on an old bow (Mathews Z-Max 55 lb.). Used some of the Wal-Mart special el cheapo arrows (Wolverines) and they're spot on. The 30-yd. kill was about a 1" tgt. believe it or not, just barely peeking above his mound from the lower part of his eye up. Wasn't even gonna try it but i thought, what the heck. Arrow made a "schlup" sound and didn't sail over the top. I blinked a couple times and thought i saw a tawny-looking bump about the middle of the arrow--sure enuf--

50--



40--



30 head--



I'm using 50-gr. field points from Easton for a bit lighter system and a blunt tip (the 30+40-yarder) made from an 8-32x1" machine screw/lock washers for adjusting the weight close to the field points--works great.

Thks. pard! Man u need to get out there and do it some. I saw a dentist buddy of mine once shoot his 1st 1 at 40 yds. years ago. He was running around jubilant like a kid. With the newer faster carbons it really makes it fun. I'm running about 15% hits 30-50 yds. A better shooter could do better, i'm sure.

Good shooting!

That head shot probably was the least painful shot, but it looks painful. Ouch!
