Do you know who the "EATHER BUNNY" was
I do not have a clue.

My intention was to do the knock knock joke routine. Being as the boxes are ordered through the "ether net", I thought it was a good play on words.

The next time a box came I would post a threaed and title it "Nuther" and the next time the thread title would be "Stilla", etc.

It takes quite a few boxes to put a bow together.

I know nothing about long range bow hunting other than what the guys at my local gun/bow shop have shown/told me. Kyle, one of them, has killed an antelope at 110 and an elk at 120. They use a sight pin connected to a turret and a range scale. They have pins for closer shots but I think for 50+ they dial.

Long range bow hunting looks interesting. I'm looking forward to hearing about how it goes for you.

I will rifle hunt one more year and then switch back to bowhunting.

What you tired of your kids beating you at f-class? Gonna give up the gun for the stick and string? Well that is just fine, shoot what you want but don't quit hanging out here, I enjoy your posts. I wouldn't let it bother me that a little girl could beat me at f-class.

I'm interested to see how you like the .010's. I have the .019's and wonder if I should have gone smaller. 110 yards is asking alot even with 7 pins, how much do you intend to pull, and what bow did you go with... unless that is ruining your surprise

I plan to stay tuned (no pun intended) cause this long range archery stuff is fascinating. If I decide to get envolved in more that shooting foam, I'll need to rethink how to keep the critter still while the arrow is headed his way. A lot to think about, for sure.

I'd like to try it but I just can't afford it. One long range sport is all my wallet and wife can handle. Plus, bow hunting mule deer takes more skill than I possess. I'll just have to experience it vicariously through others like Buffalobob.
