    In that case....i don't really hunt any spots where you're gonna get clean shot past about 30-40 yards.

    Point well taken Hoosier, I shouldn’t have posted what I did; Folks keep you’re hunting shots within your comfort zone for most 15 - 25 yards would be a common range.

    But a side note with a little pride
    The 130 yard target was shot repetitively with the Conquest 4 target bow, maximum distance while aiming dead on.
    The rest was accomplished with my Prestige hunting bow with a 5 pin lethal weapon sight with razor pins

    Good Luck everyone this fall :wave:

    Longest shot I have taken at game would be 30 yards (that is all my spot will allow). I do have a 60 yard pin that is sighted in and can consistently hit a paper plate at that distance.

    When I was starting out I made a 65-70 yard shot on a doe...

    :doh: BAD SHOT...took a long time for her to bleed out... now I limit them to 45...
    Of course bows weren't what they are now...

    but I'll still reach for a coyote...:biggrin1:

    if you are absolutly sure of the yardage and consistanly practice from a stand at a certian range say 40
    if it clean
    i did it 1 time as a deer came out into a bean field stopped at a dead 40
    shot him back but in tha liver
    i like em' 12 yarders tha best
    also deer are creatures of habit if you ani't spooked him he will be back and you can set up closer
    the preffered:biggrin1: :cool:
