Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Varmint Hunter, Like BBob said those are the same guys, I used to shoot archery w/one now he holds 1000 yrd bench records, anothr friend of mine was a pro archer and shot at Worlds IBO. These boys have 370 bulls and 30" muleys on the wall. I'm not in their league, but have taken 30+ archery animals in last ten yrs. out to 65 yrds.Flip side my son and I shot 5 animals at 500-600 yrds this fall, he is 14 teen. MY longest bull 756 , w/340 WM, closest 8 yrd. My main hunting buddy shoots 6-9 @ 100 archey

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

I don't have the longest, but I bet I am definitely in the running for the closest! I was getting sleepy in my tree stand about 0930 and decided to walk over to the adjacent corn field and see if I could make something happen other than me falling out of my stand. I started criss crossing the rows. The wind was gusty and if I timed my movements right the wind would mask my noise pretty good. I would lean into a row with my $10 tasco mini bino's and take a peek down that row. If all was clear I would step into it. After a while, I peeked into a row and saw a pretty nice looking 4x4 laying down about 35yds from me. I backed out a half dozen rows and started making a plan. I would move even slower and try to close the distance. I moved a couple rows back closer and started towards him. It was taking for ever because I'd have to wait for a good gust of wind and then move a little bit. Pretty soon, a gust of wind dropped off and I could hear him coming towards me. I just stood still and started wondering what the hell to do if he was too many rows over for a shot. I drew back and waited anyway. All of a sudden here he came, one row over! When he got directly next to me, he seen me and i let go! Time of flight must have been nearly instant since the distance was one row of corn (30" row food plot). The arrow went directly thru his heart and he pumped out in about 40 feet and crashed. My camo pattern was Carhart tan. (Literally... Carharts)

Shot a javelina in 2007 at 72 yards. Double lunged him and he made it 25 to 30 yards before expiring.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Well i have heard lots of stories now time for some pictures. lol I shot this little buck in 2008 with my PSE X FORCE at 88 yards he ran about 80 yards before falling over. You can see the exit wound the entrance was high just behind the other sholder. He was quartering away and never even knew what happened. G5 Tekken tore completly through him. Like the others have said you MUST practice at rediculas ranges over and over then the situation still has to be perfect. You cant just shoot at every deer that comes by at 80 yards.

This is not the longest groundhog kill with my bow but i dont have a pic of my longest one. It is 42 yards. But i was proud of this one anyway
