I've shot deer from 11yds ON THE GROUND with my bow, and from 34yds. Everything else was in between.

bow- 10yds - 22 yds
ML - 25yds to 50 yds
gun - 15yds to 290ish.... all but one shot was within 100yds.

I didn't mL/gun hunt last yr. Just bow. If I do hunt with either this yr it will be short. AS I have 2 new pices of private property that is bow only. I know its good land so will stick to the bow.

Bear - 18yds- Bow is the only way to do it.
