Re: LR bow hunting/shooting

7mm what makes you think you killed both deer no blood and no serious damage? deer are very resilant animals and recover from much worse than you stated you inflicted. again as i said in my post you have to weigh everything before you shoot, if you cant get an exact range then i sugest you dont shoot! hope your season goes better!

Re: LR bow hunting/shooting

Well as far as the bad rangefinder reading goes I didn't know it was the background until I had already shot. But I do say that there is a good chance the first buck lived but due to the predation in the area of the second I am sure that with a broken leg his odds were pretty grim. But I do appreciate that you fellas go about your archery hunting in a reasonably responsible manner as far as distance go.
I shoot 1/4 inch groups at a 1000 yards. That is...till my second shot.

Re: LR bow hunting/shooting

I shoot out to 150 yds, with a Mathews Conquest Apex 7 set at 29 1/2" and pulling 80 lbs. Most of the animals I shoot though have been under 40 yds, but I do have a few that were 70+ and one that was way out there. Just to let you guys know, I'm shooting a 510 gr arrow at 281 fps.

Re: LR bow hunting/shooting

I shoot a Mathews Q2 at 74 lbs, arrow speed of 294 fps with Nap 100 gr spitfires and 100 gr slick tricks. First pin is set at 25 yds. Second pin at 40, then 50, 60, and 70. Bottom of the ring of my sight cage is good for 100 yds. Years ago used to have my pins set up in 20 yd increments (20, 40, 60, 80, 100) when I was shooting every day and attending 3-D shoots. Time constraints don't allow me to shoot that often anymore so long distance range has backed down a bit. I still practise out to 100 yds when I pull out the bow but keep my shots at animals under 70 yds and I always use a rangefinder if the animal is more than 40 yds away. I don't necessarily range the animal. I like to range the surrounding area (trees, stumps, brush, etc) before the animal comes in. 90% of my bowhunting involves calling the animal to me or another shooter during the rut (wt, elk, moose) or calling in yotes.
