A couple years ago a few of us shot at 60 yards 1-2 times a week. At that time i was happy to get every shot in a paper plate. My .019" sight covers the plate at 60 yards, so no chance for me to do that. Nice shooting, fairly noisy bow though it seems, maybe it's just my speakers.

2-3/4" groups as was shown on the video is not an impossible feat @63 yards.
Nevertheless it takes a dedicated shooter and someone who will put in the hours and good form with good practice to accomplish this result.
Meaning that the guy in the video must be congratulated for his fine performance and commitment, as well as taking the time to confidently execute real good shooting!

Probably not . I don't usually shoot that far. The most i practice to is 50 yards and even then i'd be very happy if i got groups like that

I'm almost 62 years old now, but when I was his age I have to admit that, yes, I could shoot that well routinely, but with my target bow. Hunting bow as another story, but then the equipment was a little less sophisicated. That was 30+ years ago.

You know, to be honest, I could do it on a good day. The thing about me as a shooter though, there are days that I would be lucky to do that at40 yards I dont know if i could do it with a hunter setup though. Im VERY used to my open class setup. I shot at 85yds the other day with my indoor lens (8power). It really brought the target in close. I shot arrows,3 were about6or7inches apart in the area i was shooting for which imo wasnt bad. I had one though that was in the corner of the bag, and all it was was a little flinch. At those distances it takes merely an inch or two of movement and you will miss completely.

HCH- I thought you were shooting an 82nd? When did you pick up the Elite's and how are you liking them?
