    Little less than 40 but I was not comfortable with the shot...
    Worked out OK but I would probably not do it again.

    How far!

    When i was 18 i flung one at a monster buck on a gas line 75 yards didnt touch him, about 8 inches right behind his front leg but low.
    The club later killed that buck with a rifle he was carried al over town.
    14pts 26in wide with 2 droptines over 200pounds probable score 150 but was never scored.
    That shot even at 75 yds and 28years ago is imbedded in my mind!

    The longest shot and killed 41yds but i wouldnt take it that far now!
    Now the farthest about 35 if i know its 35.:biggrin1:

    Farthest on a deer was 53, got him right in the Boiler room, he went about 30 yards and tipped over, farthest on a elk was 72, was a good hit, but i went right after him and got a 2nd shot at 50, also a good one, went about 60 70 yards and went down. My 2 deer last year were 30 and 33.

    10 point, 130 pounds fd...... 48 yards.... dbl lung shot... he stood there for a few minutes.... seemed like it anyway then turned and walked away.... then i was second guessing myself..... then 2 hours later i went and retrieved arrow as to not jump him and saw the results.... he walked abot 20 yards and laid down and went to sleep....

    38 yards is my farthest. Double lung. He walked about twenty yards and stopped, did the "everything is going dark" dance and fell over.
