I also think deer don't flinch much when the shooter is that far away because the noise is reduced dramatically. Don't try this at home but we used to stand beside the crap house when people were shooting at the long shots 100, 125, and 150 and you could barely hear the shot break. Just the swish as the arrow went past. People using big magnum rifles shooting over 1000 yard have the same deal, know the range and set the scope and break the shot. The biggie is wind and only the wind, the shooting part is not hard if you do it all the time. So you too Maryj could shoot a deer at 100 yds if you sighted your bow in for this and had a range finder and no wind and a deer that did not move. And really the deer moving is not much of an issue because they spend most of their time standing still. I am on a quest for the 100 yd shot on a deer this year and hope to get it on film. You can too.
WELL NOW! !! If your expecting a sermon on hunter ethics forget it.
You know full well The risks and are capable of shooting 6 arrows into
a 9 inch circle at 100 yards. If indeed this is the case, you will probably
be able to accomplish this task.
I am a firm believer that ethics in every endeavor dwell with in the person
who is attempting feats that others would never dream of. It's those dreamers
who dare to dwell out side the box, that bring home the gold.
