What was your longest killing shot on a big game animal?
Once upon a time long ago there was an expression that we used.
Depending on the the exact circumstances it went something like this- "Are those words made out of chocolate?"
Now then if you look at the distribution of results for rifle longest shots and for archery longest shots you will see that they are almost exactly the same distribution. From which we can deduce that either the bowhunters are just as big of liars as the rifle hunters or that there are about the same percentage of bowhunters who make the really difficult shots as there are rifle hunters. Secondly we can deduce that most people do not shoot past 80 yards or 800 yards but those few that do will shoot a long long ways because they have practiced long and hard to do so.light bulb
