    :mad: 30 yards. Pinned down. Nowhere to go. Draw back. Puts head down to eat. I center up. Make sure shots good. Pull Trigger. Arrows got her name on it. She ducks it. Mr.Drew is very pissed. :mad:

    30 yds is a pretty long shot. I try to set my stands so I'm shooting under twenty.

    I shot a doe at 35 and she tried to duck but it still caught her, I aimed a little lower than usual due to the fact she caught me when I drew back. I don't know if it was the movement she caught or the slight noise of my arrow sliding through my WB. Either way, she took the arrow right below her shoulder blade, directly above her, I guess it would be her elbow joint, and then it some how deflected downward through the center of her brisket. I got the front of one lung and the heart, don't ask me how..:noidea: My arrow made a left downward turn and I still got a pass thru..... When I shot she kind of flinched and turned towards me, then when the arrow made contact she turned away from me and ran about 30 yards before going down.

    I put out branches stuck in the ground at 20 and 30 yards in my shooting lanes or in half moon if shooting into a field.
    You would be surprised at how unnatural and easy to pick out at dusk and dawn several branches sticking out of the ground can be.
    Depending on where they are in between I adjust accordingly.
    Seems to work out ok.


    As for the WB, since switching to the WB 2 years ago, my brother and I have taken a few deer and turkey, all at less than 25 yards and none have reacted to the draw. I'm a fan.

    I have shot mine for 2 years, I just think a QAD will be an upgrade for my setup next season!

    QAD would be my only choice for a drop away as it allows you to let down, something necessary when stalking.

    Time to put up a stand at home. Are you not bending at the waist? Healing the bow? Stop missing and find out whats going on.
