New here so Hi all.
I think a rangefinder, and a moveable sight are important. Speed can sure help, and I can see why APApro shoots what he does but I like a skinny med/heavy arrow. I always use my rangefinder and Practice at as far as possible is as well.
As to the ?, I took a mule deer in texas at 103. Oddly I practice on a mule deer 3D set at 103 all year, it sits beside/behind the 100yrd bag I practice on daily. So I had a small mark for 103 as my sight tape then stopped at 100 yrds.
He had no clue I was there, I can't say why, but felt very confident, I know I ve passed many many shots 1/3rd the distance, it just felt right I had lotsa time to read his mood, I likely could have got 5 yrds closer, but....he only ran maybe 80-90 yrds.
