Re: Long Range Bowhunting By Lorenzo Young

Consider this...... bow seasons were based on using a primitive weapon. If, by hunting at what could be argued muzzle loading distances, we may very well not have a argument if the government wants to cut our bow seasons.

One other thought, 330 fps? Was that with a hunting weight arrow that was personally chronographed? Some states have a minimum arrow weight of 6gr/# or 400 gr which ever is more.

Re: Long Range Bowhunting By Lorenzo Young

Great article. All the points you make are valid. Know your limitations. My friends do shoot and kill pronghorn antelope at long ranges with archery equipment in Wyoming every year. The first time I witnessed it I was amazed. Where I live and hunt whitetail deer a 50 yard shot is a far shot because of the thick areas I hunt in the Atchafalaya Basin in Louisiana.

Bow hunting is IMO about getting in close to the animal. I think you guys need to improve your hunting skills not your long range archery skills.

Great article. I do most of my hunting with archery equipment I have successfully taken game from 3yds to 109yds but I have also had to pass on countless shots. It all has to with personal ability. The right gear and the right time. Thier is a lot of great information in this article the one thing I noticed mention in the article is centering the peep around the pin. I do not agree here by centering your peep around each pin for different yardage changes your anchor point slightly. Instead IMO your peep should be centered around your sight rack and your pin placed on target just takes out a lot of the equation. It's a lot easier to center on larger diameter than small. One other tip if you question yourself on a shot on any game animal ever do not take the shot. There is to many other variables that you can not control in archery. Shoot to kill not wound an animal you may never find

Re: Long Range Bowhunting By Lorenzo Young

I am so glad to see this thread, about a year ago I was trying to come up with something to improve my distance at target shooting. I saw a row of shooting sticks in the sporting goods and it hit me that this was the key. I started out learning to shoot with the shooting stick and it made a big different quickly. I told my buddies and they told me that I was full of it but at hunting camp this year I out shot everyone and blew them away at how well I was grouping at 80 yards. Shooting sticks are the ticket.
