Congrats on the big'un, and 4 ELK also.
This looks like evidence to me. Remember the famous words of ole Dirty Harry...
A man's GOT to know his limitations!

I would say that you know your's well. Congrats again.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

I think with todays speed bows...60 yard shots are possible HOWEVER....I personally wont take anything farther than 40, maybe even 30 haha. Bows are really starting to get a bad name all over the internet for big game hunting due to wounded animals not being recovered. Too many people arent tracking their animals well enough after a shot and many others taking shots they shouldnt be. I think...unless you really are a skillful archer than 30-40 yards really should be max.

The same can be said for rifle and muzzy also. Every year I see rifle guys take REALLY long shots at deer and never go look for blood.( shooting my 300win mag and it didnt drop so I guess I missed).
Archery just leaves behind more evidence that a bullet does not

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Gentlemen.

You are both right.

But, what you are talking about is JUDGEMENT.

Regardless of the weapon you use, the obligation is, to know what your
capabilities are with that weapon.
