    Yeah I think topgun is 50 yrd max...But it's a 3d thing they usually put 1 or 2 way out...Ethical??? to alot of people it's just targets not hunting practice:noidea: ...I know my limits...but they're not the same as your's or Smoke's...so what's ethical...My bow will kill a coyote at 60 yrds and I can hit the vitals at 60 and if I'm confident in the shot, the wind and the situation...I'll take the shot...

    Yup there is something about tha Grove that tears up folks. As ya know in tha early days it was nothing ta have 1500 shooters. I feel that the magnanimity of it had a lot ta do with it.
    My best finish was in '88' at 5th unlimited class
