“Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory.”
just got into shooting rifles in the last two years so no long range shots on animals yet still practicing....but have been competing in asa and mba achery for the past 11 years...i would have never tried this shot on a deer as i am comfortable shooting deer to about 65 yards under perfect conditions and the animals is very calm...if alert the ball game changes but i made a 91 yard perfect killing shot on a hog last year....hog weighed 462lbs and was shot with a bowtech allegiance set at 71lbs shooting an easton acc 360 with a simmons 100gr landshark at about 309fps.
I forgot more than I remembered!
I shot a small bull elk on Mount Taylor at 50 yards. The bull only went about 10-yards before he expired. I was shooting a High Country Carbon 4- Runner bow at 65lbs at the time with a 100 grn fixed three blade broad head.
Whitetail three years ago, 78 yards. Mathews MQ-32, 74 lbs 30 in. draw, 60% let off. 319 fps. Gold Tip arrows with 100 gr. Spifire. Only deer I've ever heard make a sound when shot. I can't even describe it, gave me goose bumps. Recovered within 50 yards.
Varminthunter, You have met one now. At least over the internet. But I am still looking for that 60 pound striper, 20 pound bass, 5 pound crappie, etc. My biggest so far were just 59.9, 19.9 and 4.9. Ounces! But I can shoot a bow really good. And fish really good with one to.
