And there lies the problem a lot of "bow hunters" have with a crossbow season, you want to shoot gun ranges with a cross bow that you obviously have no experience with. Why? I have been bow hunting for 40+ years all over the country and my longest shot to date has been 40yds on a bull elk which I did get. Part of the allure for bow hunting at least for most of us is getting close, that is the challenge and the most exciting thing about bow hunting. At 100 yds you won't know that feeling. Too bad, good luck though.
Matthews, Phantom broadheads, and a lot of practice I shoot at least 3 times a week all year long. ( It's not that I can't make a 75-100 yd.shot I choose not too except in 3D competion,or just for the ell of it.
