Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

I agree with what you are saying. I do a lot of technical reading and keep up on the science.

The arrows I shoot out of my recurve and compound bow weigh in at 560 grains. That's normal to lite for a traditional hunter but almost unheard of for a compound shooter. My arrow tips are 100 grain brass inserts and a 150 grain broadhead.

I shoot bullet holes when paper tuned.

I am fortunate enough to have a 100 yard archery range in my back yard. I shoot every day weather permitting out to the 100 yard mark. I realize distance magnifies flaws and this improves shooting form.

Thanks for your comments

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

My longest bow kill was about 60 yards on a whitetail doe, but once I saw my little brother kill a doe with about a 200 yard shot, we were walking through a field and saw a cople doe's on the hill side on the far edge of the field, My brother aimed up in the air and let one fly. We were watching the arrow for what felt like 30 seconds when I said its gonna hit that doe, sure enough it nailed it, the doe ran about 50 yards and was done. That was the wildest shot I have ever seen in my life, but it was completely luck.

(NO STRING SIGHTS) I have shot a bow for 30 years and have found ways to increase arrow flight, Will an arrow penetrate at these yardages YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT. Is it ethical, well that depends on the hunter and his knowledge and ability in handling archery equipment, AIM SMALL MISS SMALL High wind shots at this range NO WAY!!!!!! you want all of that kinetic energy spent in PERFECT ARROW FLIGHT any cross wind can cause your arrow to loose foot pounds and not to mention a bad shot. So these long range kills with a bow also require knowledge in your situation.If you doubt leave it out, but yes it can be done.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

I shot a whitail buck trooting quite fast at 37 yds with a 65# bighorn recurve bow.I got him in the lungs but he still ran a hundred yds on adreniline. I also got a real nice 8 pointer running full bore and led him and double lunged him at about 30 yds with the same bow.They are both trophys to me because they were running and I had a witness on the 37 yd shot.

Re: Your Longest Archery Big Game Kill

Got a couple of hogs at 61 & 63. My longest whitetail is at 57 yards. I bought a Bowtech Destroyer recently and I am more comfortable shooting farther now. We are shooting them pretty accurately at 90 yards.
