Totally agree. I almost don't even use my compound anymore. Only when I'm trying to harvest a really big one that I'm on.

    Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

    While I like to practice at long range (subjective to the shooter of course), I've never taken an animal outside of 20 yards. Granted I only hunt whitetails here in Indiana and have only shot a few deer with a bow, every shot has been closer. When I first started bow hunting, I practiced to 20 and 30 yards and kept my shots to 15 or less. As I developed, I started pushing the envelope further. I now practice at 60-70 yards and feel very confident in my skills to shoot a deer out to 35-40 yards. I just don't get out enough to be able to continue to push things further right now.

    Nice. One shot? How far did it run?

    I killed a 5 point bull elk the year before with the same bow and arrow set up at 73 yards, he was 38deg down hill. I aimed for him with my 60 yard pin dead on and put one right in the boiler room. He went about the same before going down as the antelope
