Re: Tell us about your longest bow kill

40ish for me. Recurve from up a large tree. Everything else I've shot has been closer...closest was 1 yard.

Aim small hit small

When they come for your guns, give them the ammunition first.

    104 yard small 3x4 muley now that i look back it was a dumb decision, but i practiced 100 yard shots all summer long and have shot archery for over half my life and knowing my high country bow at 80 lbs would take him down, closest deer, 9 yards, biggest deer 44 yards, black bear 17 yards but had a chance under 10 but i got nervous.

    My longest was this hunting seasonl. It was my first antelope bow kill. It was the middle of the season and about 15 minutes until dusk when I ranged him at 65 yards. I had no way to get any closer. I practice shots out to 90 but 65 farther than I'd normally like to shoot on an animal to ensure a clean kill. He was at a very slight angle, not quite quartered away and I let my FMJ fly (460 gr). He let out the weirdest growl/scream I've heard from an animal and ran as absolutely fast as he could for about 50 yards and fell dead in his tracks. My arrow went right through his heart and turned it into mush and went right through his shoulder on the other side (completely shattered his leg). Needless to say I was a little awestruck when I saw the devastation done to his leg from that distance, and after passing through his ribs.

    Antelope 94 yards twice.
    I shoot in my yard out to 100 yards almost every day.
    The first one was on a small buck that was making his way thru a valley in a large harvested wheat field I drove my car ahead of him to a prairie trail with grass about two feet high on the edges. I crawled along the edge of that grass for around three hundred yards and he ended up spotting me. He actually walked right up to me, I didn't range him and shot over him. He ran and stopped at 94 yards, I held my 90 yard pin on his back and released. I double lunged him, he ran 40 yards. Never did find my arrow.
    The other was in the ND badlands and I snuck up a butte, they were way below me. I held my 90 right on because of the angle and held on his back ham for wind. There was no wind in the valley. I really shouldn't count this one because I hit him right where I was aiming, in the ham. Not a vital shot but he lay down and I finished him from 50 yards with a heart shot.
