I had to double check which forum I was in[&:]

With my Weatherby, unless the wind was absolutely ferocious, I would take the shot (couldn't see the pic so assuming a decent shot angle on the animal). Though, I have never hunted with my Weatherby.

With a bow, that is just disgusting. No other way to describe it, or the "hunter".

This was a novelty shot at 3d shoot. Three arrows to hit the vitals and win a shirt. My fletching hit my sight on the first shot set at 105yrds.

Next two shots I set it at 100yrds and aimed at the far top back of his hip and let it fly. Hit the vitals twice after that. Lucky shoot for sure on my part. Wind was gusting as you can the white caps on the lake.

These shots can be made. Its up to each hunter to decide if its something he would consider. Long shots are fun to shoot and practice.

With good form and exacution some can shoot good groups at these distances.

My farthest shot to date was 42 yards on a whitetail.

For my trip to Colorado hunting. I was practiced out to 70yrds the month before and felt good with that shot on an Elk. But never got a chance at a shot.[:@]

Probably more people then you'd think.[>:]
I totally agree. More and more bowhunters are taking longer shots from what I read on the forums. There license and there tag and there perfectly legal to take them. Each hunter make the call on each hunt.

this is my opinon,but I don't think anyone should be taking a shot at a live animal in that circunstance,no matter how good they are at the range shooting targets.I know people should use their own judgement bases on their own skills ,but if I witnessed someone taking this shot I don't think I could keep my mouth shut.
