Default "IF" you were going to take these shots

Premise is compound bow.....pins set at 20, 30, 40 and 50 yds.

Shot #1 - 2 yds at a broadside target.

Shot #2 - ZERO yds at a deer, broadside, directly beneath you.

Which pin do you use (to hit your "spot")for each shot? Remember topick asmall "spot"

**Edit - If you choose to use (to aim with)the arrow, your riser, a curling iron welded to your riser, a boar's hair dangling from your site OR any other method.....and it works, for YOU.....you are fully aware of your own abilities.....you are NOT a dumbass.....and you are quite possibly the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Shot #1 - 2 yds at a broadside target.

I use my 20 yard pin, aim at the lower 1/3rd of the deer, or more specifically, the lower 3 inches. The arrow will rise and strike sweet.

Shot #2 - ZERO yds at a deer, broadside, directly beneath you.

I do not shoot.

I said "IF" in the thread header, VA.....for shot No. 2.

And your answer to No. 1 is why I made this thread.....and why I commented on your post in the other thread.

That logic is flawed. No offense intended.....it just is.

I haven't practice either of those shots with my new bow but my thinking is you would use the same pin for both shots...40 yard.

The logic may be flawed, but my results speak for themselves. I aim just like I described in my post above and the results have been well placed shots with dead deer.

Brett:

Please don't take this personally (trust me)....as it was intended to teach a lesson (to maybe others who don't understand the 'physics' of this)I learned just about a year ago (shooting targets). I am SURE your results speak for themselves. Never questioned that, at all.

That out of the way......the logic is flawed.

Gmmat im sure virginia isn't feeding you false information for nothing im sure he has used this himself and had success.
Never crossed my mind. Brett is successful AND a friend.
