    Mine was on a 45 yard robin. Pure, unadulterated luck.

    practice, practice practice, practice. Be warned though, the practicing in itself is super addicting.

    I don't think I can afford that kind of practice!

    If you're referring to the amount of time involved, I understand. If you're talking about $ then I guess I don't. It only takes a few flu flu's. and a couple of targets.

    Couple of great videos out there on the subject. Both available from 3 Rivers Archery. One is on shooting aerial targets and the other on pheasant hunting.

    Curious what your intent is in posting a thread about shooting federally protected birds?

    My guess is your either an anti-hunter plant on this site or someone who really didn't think through what they just did and what they just posted. Either way I don't like it. Keep the laws, if you don't like them fight to change them but don't break them. It just causes everyone else to suffer the consequences.

    Used to hunt ducks and geese with my bow. Most shots were close though. 20-30 yards. If they were on the ground I used a conventional fletch and broadhead. I used a compound for a while then switched to recurve, then gave it up.
