Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

80 yards with a bow is about equal to 1000 yard rifle shot. 100 yard shot equal to about 2000 yards. It takes more skill to shoot a bow past 80 yards then a rifle at 1000. At 2000 or 100 yards both are target shooting with hopes of a kill shot.

62 yards on November 18, 2009. It was the first deer I killed with a bow since being paralyzed from the sternum down in a motorcycle accident on May 1, 2008.

That is one nice deer. Congratulations on the awesome shot. You could probably almost see it hit. How did the deer react when hit?

Awesome shots guys, I don't know if I'll ever be good enough to try but I will practice.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

here is a buck i killed in 2010 on my place in idaho. shot was at 73 yards but i regularly shoot out to 120 with my buddies for practice almost every night so i was comfy taking a shot at that distance. i can put 10 arrows in a pie plate at 100yds so i am almost better with my bow than a gun lol. was hard quarting away and put the shot right where i wanted it to. missed the guts and had a perfect x through the hart and exited the offside shoulder. i am shooting a bowtech invasion now but killed the deer with my old destroyer at 74lbs shooting 125 grain slick tricks. if you look at the first picture, i am in the middle left of the screen on the hillside and the buck is skyline bedded down on the upper right. i have killed much bigger but the spot and stalk on this was just to good to pass up. hope you guys enjoy.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

I routinely practice out to 140 yards and I'm working on extending that range to perhaps 200+ if my little project pans out. Does that mean I shoot animals that far (hell NO!). There are BS'rs then there are BS'rs. I can easily hit where I aim at 100 but hold my shots to around 80 because I've noticed a tremendous drop off in penetration after 80+ yards which to me is reason to hold my shot. How far have I successfully taken a deer?? Let's just say you wouldn't believe it. No sense trying to convince anyone so I won't try.
