Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

57.5 yards on this boar hog last night, public land in Cali. Complete pass through, one shot kill, hog went 40 yards before expiring. 2013 Bowtech Assassin, HHA OL5519 sight, Beman 400 ICS arrows, 100 gr Rage chisle tip 2 blade. I practice on a daily basis out to 80 yards, in the wind, up hill, down hill, seated, standing, kneeling, etc...

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Its already been said but I can not stand it when people bash others and call them liars when they say they can accurately shoot a bow 100+ yds. With the right equipment and a well tuned bow 100 yds isnt all that difficult with practice. I have never shot at a deer that far though. The farthest i have tried was 72 yds it was a doe and she was looking right at the blind, it was getting late and i had a nocktunral= wrong thing to do. She saw the arrow coming and was gone! My longest kill was about 66 yds she was quartering to me and i put the arrow right threw her front shoulder threw her heart and split the core of her lungs. I also shot a turkey off a log at 62 yds.

When i shoot i normally start at 30 and go back ten yards at a time until i get to about 100-125(as far as my hha slide will go)

I will say once I started shooting 60+ it made my normal 20 yd bow stand shoot a piece of cake!

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Shot a 5 x 5 bull elk this year at 50 yards. Unfortunately I thought it was about 40 and hit low. Thank god for good sharp broadheads. Hit him low in the boiler room but did some severe damage anyway. Took him down with a second shot through the lungs at 36 yards. I am shooting a smoking fast bow and even so it still hit 4-5 inches low with the 10 yard misjudgement on the range.

I agree with you on making shots that people don't believe. When I was in my early 20's I shot my 55lbs recurve everyday. I was on a roving range and I was the only one to hit the target at 80 yards. The 3 guys I was shooting with didn't get close. I also beat them in the round. They were using compound bows with sights. I was always.kicking.their.butts when we shot for score.
I also took a coyote off hand, one handed at 80 paces with a super Blackhawk .44 mag w/red dot.
revolver. Some days your lucky and some days yours just flat GOOD because you practice practice practice!

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Interesting thread. I know some guys that shoot 100+ yards at deer all the time. Unfortunately for everyone they kill, they wound a dozen or more. Ill probably make some enemy's with this statement so ill appologize up front but shooting that far at game is just irresponsible. Big easy to hit animals like caribou and moose you jeopardize penetration at that range and smaller animals that penetration is not a problem, the vital zone is so small making clean ethical kills is not a high probability. In my 23 years of hunting I have lost two big game animals. Both were with a bow. First one crossed onto a neighbors property before expiring and he would not let me retrieve it. Think he may have ate it. The other I could not see the blood very well at all in a 60 acre field. Shot was right at dark. I looked everywhere on the ground with terrible light for deer or blood before giving up. My uncle told me the next day the reason I couldn't find it on the ground is because it was hanging on top of the fence it tried to jump. I circled it a dozen times probably and never even shined the light up 4.5 foot up on the fence. How have I only lost 2 animals in all these years?? Easy, I keep all my shots within a high percentage kill range determined by the size of the animals and the current conditions, weather and everything else. Temp, clothing, lots of things effect your shot. These ranges will vary for everyone. If you can shoot 90 yards and hit a quarter hanging n a deer every shot then more power to you. But don't do it because you're trying to "will"the arrow into the vitals and are just trying to hit "the animal"
