26 yards from the groundon a late December doe.. Not very far, but at the time that was the cut-off for me. I doubt I'll take a shot past 30 this year also.

On 2 different occasions I've taken a 22 yard shot with my recurve, both double lung shots. Never attempted a shot farther then that.

My longest was a buck at 32! I think I am going to make a restriction for myself at 25yds from here on out! I am confident out to 40 with my bow, but I do not want to risk it anymore!!

30-ish yards on the doe i got two years ago. Last year i upgraded to a new, much faster bow to help on those longer shots and the two deer i arrowed last year were both inside 10 yards haha. I can confidently shoot pie plate groups out to fifty or so yards but I don't think I wouldn't shoot for blood past 35.

37 yard buck last year. The way and places i hunt usually dont allow for longer shots, but i am not afraid to take them. I would say the limit to my shot is however confident i and certain i am in taking that animal at that particular time. Ive drawn back at plenty of deer not just far (under 30) adn felt that the situation wasnt right, so i let down. But i wouldnt be afraid to take a shot upwards of 50yds if i was confident...

Farthest shot that i announce as my claim to fame[8D] 33 yards... black bird with a judo tip hahahahahaha[:-]

I like your style shultzy[8D]
