    Who is really shooting 80%
    I havent found one bow that is true 80% letoff,have you ?
    im not sure but at one time pope & young would not recognize a trophy if it was taken with a bow that shoot with more than 65% letoff is this true?

    I've never had mine measured to be certain. Pope and Young will recognize it they just put an * by the entry signifying that a higher letoff was used in harvesting the animal.:peace:

    It was that way years ago but I don't know how they do it now.
    I shoot 'em to put meat in the freezer, not to hang 'em on the wall do I don't pay much attention.

    Ive heard of it & the deer there but never been.
    ive hunted radford army amo.plant in radford huge buck's
    & fort picket in blackstone both places have quota hunt's
    the biggest buck's ive seen in the state i videoed at yorktown battle field park
    i use to spend time at a camp ground down there & near dark hundred's of people would come to see the deer.for year's hunting was band but the past 2 year's archery only/lottery drawing/50 hunters a year/10buck permit's the rest have to take doe's.
    ive video 50 deer in about a 75acre field half were buck's 4 better than 20in.&10pt's 1 would go in the 200class we counted 21pt's 25to30in beam's the deer stood 30yd's eating i watched for 45min before wife got bored i didnt i went back up there every evening watchin that monster.:biggrin1:
