That's where I lose the potential for energy, I'm a small guy with a 26" draw. Last I checked I was getting 270 fps

Longest kill on a whitetail with my Bear Grizzly recurve was 45 yards.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

That's a good shot greyfox. A guy I know here is an amazing shot with traditional equipment. He travels around doing archery seminars. Name is Frank Addington Jr. Saw a guy at one seminar taunting him to shoot a deer target set up for the compound shooters at 100 yards. Frank ignored him several times, continuing on with his presentation. Finally with a final taunt from the drunk man frank in one smooth motion drew an arrow from his quiver, knocked while spinning around, and put a perfect lung shot on the deer at 100 yards. The man shut up.

That is an amazing shot with traditional equipment! My hunting is two extremes. Long range rifle, as far as I can effectivly shoot. Up close and personal with my Hiward Hill longbow. Shot a few deer back when compounds first came on the scene , but 99% of my 50 years of archery hunting is traditional, longbow in particular.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Very cool. Howard hill was an amazing shot. Inspirational. I killed my first longbow buck this year. We try to manage the farm for 3-1/2 year old bucks. This is the first one I've had come in range with my longbow. A Martin Savanah.

Nice buck......I get the same charge out of shooting a deer at 20 yards with my longbow as one at 1000 yards with my LR rig!
