Time has a habit of moving on. That is sometimes best. Whole new adventures
await us just around the bend. I'm breaking in a New Sav. 111 LDH 7MM.
I almost bought the .338 Lapua, but I was afraid i would get my but kicked
clear across the barn yard, This 7mm Rem mag. is so sweet to shoot and just a little bump when it barks.

Take care and good luck.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

100+ yards with a bow? First off I hope this would not include people who pretend hunting with a crossbow is "archery" hunting. Second, anyone who hail-marys an arrow at 100+ yards at an animal probably kills more than they bother tracking... My longest is 67 yards on an elk only becuase conditions were perfect. I can't imagine even the most skilled and diciplined archers taking a shot on a live animal at anything over 80.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

dandc,

Howdy,

I agree with you on the crossbow and hand held bow synopsis. First of all there is about a 100 lbs difference in the draw weights. Like comparing
a muzzel loader to an AR15. the only thing that remains constant is thst
a missel is launched down range.

The compound bow has come a long way in improving the distances shot
and the scores compiled. But, the fact remains the bow is drawn by hand
and the string is held by hand until the arrow is released.

Archer, Howard Hill Has kills recorded with the long bow at over 100 yards.
Luck? Maybe and maybe not. Only he could tell you of the hours of practice
he put in to acheive this marksmanship.

As for bowmen achieving 100yds+ kills? I personally will leave that to the
bowman drawing the bow.

Above is a statement that couldn't be more true and is applicable to all hunters and shooters.

In order to achieve the positive attitude you must PRACTICE, PRACTICE,
PRACTICE. But remember it's perfect Practice that makes perfect scores.
When the correct disciplines are applied your scores will reflect the effort.
