Just because I can doesn't mean I would. If the conditions were right though I might take that shot. I would have to feel really good about it.

If I am feeling real good about my bow and shoot it great and have real confidence in my shot there would be no question I would take the shot.

Funny thing is here what we consider a long shot (40 yards) out west they consider a chip shot. Some of the guys out there shoot 60, 70, and even 80 yards.

Default Honestly

I dont think I would take it in crosswind.

Many do take these shots and many do miss at that distance.

Im all about making the best shot for myself.
DB

50yrds is my max on whitetail

I sighted my bow in for 30 yards, but i wouldnt take a shot that far..Too many variables to go wrong in long distance shots
A gun, no problem thou. Some rifles we have sighted in up to 100 yards

At a elk yes. White tail no. A 3 D is a target and doesn't move like a deer can. One step and you have a bad hit. I would shoot one at 40 yard, but I like them in that 20 to 30 yard range.

Default I do practise 60 yards

It would have to be perfect conditions before I tried anything that far.

A couple of years ago I felt 20 yards was my comfort range, as I've taken up target achery and shoot more and more over the last couple of year my comfort range has increased. I shot a doe at 42 yards and never thought twice about it..........everybody has there own distance they are good at.

I am sure there are plenty of people that can pull off 60 yarders at whitetail every day...I am just not one of them......yet

Good question I don't think I would a Deer Target is not a living breathing thing...I couldn't imagine injuring a deer...unless we are talking monster buck and it was last day or something than maybe.

Unhappy No Way!

Just a tad to far, 45 to 50 is my limit, and as others have stated that wind could boger your shoot every time. Wounded and lost deer, No thanks!

Talking No Way!

I think Clint Eastwood said it best in one of his movies, '" A man has got to know his limitations"

I shot a nice 3x3 mule buck at 63 yards. He only went about 90 yards from where the arrow past through and stuck into the dirt
