Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Long distance Archery kills are the exception, not the norm by any means.

It's pretty obvious the average Archery kill is under 35 yards.

A lot of Archers practice at 80 to 100 yards. 80 yards happens to be the longest distance shot on an NFAA field course and 90 meters is the longest shot on the NAA target tournaments.

With the exception of Of a shoot called the clout
that used to be shot at 180 yards. this shoot has been lengthened out to accommodate the compound bow.

Shooting these longer distances and becoming proficient in correcting for
wind and trajectory is good practice for shooting the short distances

Keep you powder dry, if your lucky enough to have some.
Taking in the factor its not ethical and am a ethical hunter, and practice 6 times a week to be proficient with my bow. And to answer you no range , I don't in a stand over a game trail waiting for them to walk by me I get out there and hunt them. I guided in Alaska Montana Washington and Argentina, so for you to say opinions are like rain, am pretty sure your all facts and no experience

I have hunted game of on type or another since I was 12 years old. I have
only missed a year when I was in Korea. I am now 81 years old.

Experience ? I have been around the block once or twice and have been
in many hunting camps over the years.

The middle of this month I will spend a week and a half Spring Bear and
Turkey hunting.

I wish you well.

Harshness is not a virtue.

Whitetail spike buck...63 big steps. Steps are a unit of range measurement not seen much anymore after the introduction of laser range finders, however this ancient form of ranging can still be found in many rural locations, in use by us "country folk" throughout the south. LOL!

Ah yes, the old step it off unit of measure. I know it well. It works fine as long
as you do the steppin. Has to do with how long or short your legs are.

Yes sir! I'm 6'3" tall so I have a pretty good stride when I pace off for "yardage"..funny thing is , that's what I judge also ,"steps" .. I've been practicing that way since I was a kid so when I look at a deer and judge the distance , my mind automatically judges the distance in my steps , which my sights are set accordingly in "steps" also....
