Just to be curious... what is your longest kill shot with a bow? If you have pictures of that animal please post for all to see!

well me and my buddyearl went down to a yard sale in town and picked us up some bows. there were sights on it so i figured they musta been on target since they looked purdy good. we bought some arrows, all different kinds of'em that way we could have a wider selection. we went back in our feild and we seen these deer bout 400 yards away so we started flingin arrows at 'em. eventually we hit one and we tracked it for about 100 yards and we found it. so yea, bout 400 yards [8D]

just messin

I missed one at 15 yards this year

Ive been bowhunting for 18 years and I was using a bowtech allegiance set at 70lbs, 29inch draw, 360grain arrow at 310fps. My choice of broadhead was a wasp boss bullet 75grain with a 1inch cutting diamter. The deer was at a pretty good quatering away angle, arrow entered at the last rib and came out slightly in front of the offside shoulder. The arrow stuck in the ground like it didnt even touch anything and the deer dropped about 50 yards from the arrow.

Nice story thanks for sharing! I just started last year and I was able to harvest 2 hogs and a doe the two hogs were at 20 and 35 yards and the doe was at 15 yards. I used a pse fireflight with predator arrows. I just recently got my girlfriend into bow hunting and she loves it (she only shoots up to 20 yards but hey its a start)so we'll have to see how this year goes. Hopefully it will be as successful as last one was! Once again thanks for sharing

30 yards on the run on a doe in 2003, don't ask me how I did it, nor would I ever do it agian, it was a stupid thing to do, I got lucky and I hit her in the spine. At the time I was using my Mathews Zmax, and as I do today I was using Muzzy 100gr. 3 blade

My longest yardage harvest was at 25 yds. I hunted with a crossbow from 1988 til 1994. I have hunted withcompound bow only, since 1995.
