Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

The Spruce Grouse sitting in a Spruce tree. I always started at the bottom grouse and worked my way up. Those with a fresh red salmon. What a feast.

I switched over to a 22 Ruger Single Six mag pistol when the snow flys. Arrows dam hard to find in a foot or two of snow.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

If your shooting a bow at any animal over 60 yards you need to re evaluate your hunting ethics.
Ive shot field archery for years and the longest shot is 80 yards with a 60lb or even 65 lb bow.
Im sure it can be done just a bad idea and the chance of a clean kill are not in the archers odds. Most archers wont shoot past 40 and these are ones that shoot all year round in tournaments when it comes to hunting.

Marty, Thank you

Ethics are in the head of the hunter and not in the equipment he uses.

Like you I have shot field Archery for many years, I shoot a 26 lb compound bow.
I have placed 2nd and 3rd. in the Nationals at various times. Prior to that I shot
a 25lb recurve bow in NAA tournaments and won the Canadian Nationals once.
Shooting a bow that light is my choice and I have spent hours and hours of practice to perfect it.


Hopefully with the Hunter Education classes being taught, a LARGE DOSE of
ETHICS is given to each and every student.

I was hunting in Wyoming, and 3 or 4 days before, killed a very nice P&Y antelope over a waterhole--that shot was about 20 yards. The next few days I hunted mulies and finally got within about 50 yards of this buck. This was the one and only deer I shot with a bow that I did not shoot out of a tree stand. Looking back now, it was a shot I should not have taken, but again, luck was on my side. What was really neat- Glenn St Charles founder of the P&Y club was also hunting the ranch at the same time and I spent quite a bit of time with him and his friends that week. It was a quite a trip.
