Nice and informative article. I can't say that I personally agree with the long range aspect of bowhunting, but that is just me and is likely a product of where I hunt. To me the object is to see how close I can shoot the animal instead of how far away, but I do shoot for fun on targets out to 100 + yards so I know the archer is fully capable of doing it when things are in favor. They just aren't in favor often here. Anyways, just wanted to say nicely written article and look forward to reading some more. I have been a avid archer now for over 25 years and just absolutely love it. Currently a PSE Pro Field Staffer and Pro Staffer for Grim Reaper Broadheads.

That was a really great article. I am planning on switching over to emphasize long range bowhunting after this season is over and it was just so good to have an article like this.

Greg,
Nice to hear you enjoyed the article. Thanks for the compliments. I can certainly appreciate your point of view regarding long range bowhunting. I believe a lot of folks feal the same. Lots of things shape our ideas. Like you said, the area you hunt and live is often a factor, why you bowhunt, and what you were taught play a part too.

I sure love bowhunting too! Sounds like you've got a great job!

Jim,
Thanks! Looking forward to hearing about your hunting this year.

buffalobob. Yes, I am on the PSE forum, but I actually don't post very often. The shop I am affiliated with is in Fort Smith, Arkansas. I live not too far from Nathan Brooks who is on the PSE Pro Staff as a competition shooter. If you follow PSE then you surely know of him. I got to shoot some local tournaments with him when he was still quite young and he was awesome all the way back then.

grit, it was a good article. Not just saying that. You write well with good information, and you mentioned my PSE XForce bow so that makes it even nicer Look forward to reading more.
