Are you shooting a trad bow in that vid? Cuz your arrow had plastic fletches on it and with most traditional bows you need feather fletches.
No, I was using a Parker Ultra Lite 31 with Maxima 350 arrows fletched with blazer vanes.

Steve,
I know just how aggravating those rabbits can be! The attachment isa video of meshooting one with my bow.I only brought three arrows with me because I figured he would run away after the first shot, I guess I was wrong. I shotmy first arrow, missing him by 2" high. I shot my second arrow and that just missed him by about 1" high. My last arrow was right on the money...

That video was pretty darn cool! Every time I miss which hasn't by much there usually in the next county by the time I get another arrow nocked. Great shooting!!

Yep killer there kicking my ass good! I never thought about using a bigger broadhead like you said. Good idea there! I better think of something or pull the shotgun out because I checked my garden this morning and the SOB's ate more of my peas! I even sprinkled this garden dust stuff on them to keep them off. It worked alright last year but not this year. It is a few years old so maybe it lost its potentness.

The more I think about it the 870 is coming out.
Well the 870 did come out. I took it out right before dark last night and snuck up to 2 rabbits about 5' apart from each other. I lined myself up to where I could take one shot and hope to hit them both. It worked!! I got myself 2 rabbits in one shot with the 12 gauge. I couldn't hold out any longer, them SOB's kept on taking more of my garden. That damn recurve of mine was hard on me this week, I had to do something![8D]

1 inch off at any distance = no meat tonight.

Solution: Shoot closer, or practice more. Check arrows for imperfections.

On the plus side, you may never run out of rabbits to practice on.

May your stewpot be always full.

Off by an inch at 30 yards...not much to complain about there
