Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

with a new modern bow and a site like a sureloc 100 yards or more isn't out of the realm. I know a guy who shoots animals all the time even out to 120 yards. he is a PSE pro staffer. its all about how much you are willing to practice, 60 yards is pretty much a chip shot. I can't see why anyone thinks thats a long shot. in utah you better be able to shoot some distance because closer shots just don't happen that much. I shot a buck this year at 81 yards.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

My bad. That should have read 310 or so feet per second. I can also drop an arrow size, turn about 5 pounds off the bow (to keep the spine on, my groups open up a bunch if I don't tune it down) and get another 10 to 15 fps. But it also knocks off a bit of ke. And makes shooting in the wind harder. So I usually stick with the heaviier arrows.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

72 yards on a Barbados Sheep but the only reason I took a shot like that was cuz my sister did not make the best first shot. But like everyone has already mentioned it's only cuz I shoot a lot of competitions so I do a lot of shooting out to 100 yards and am very confident in my form however bow hunting is all about the top pin 20 yards and in if u want to kill them a long ways out bring your gun... But that's just me. But I did see a man named Jim cox take a pig off his ranch at 130 yards BUT he also had a site made by archers choice just for 80+ yard shooting ...

6x6 bull elk in Arizona in 2008. Lasered at 60 yards. The arrow, with a Shuttle-T Lock 100 grain broadhead, passed completely through both lungs and the heart. Bow used was a 2002 Browning Mirage set at 65 lbs.
