What all have you been able to take with a bow and what's your longest shot?

Deer, squirrels, rabbits, and fish.  The longest shot I MADE was a little over 30 yds on a big doe.  I shot at a buck several years ago on a quota hunt that was a little over 40 yds.  The deer was walking, I lead him a little, and hit the trigger on the release.  I saw the deer and arrow coming together and it looked like it was going to be a good hit.............that is until that dang little sapling jumped out in front of my arrow! >:(

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

I Don't think it is how far you can shoot the deer its the trust you have in your bow and yourself

I agree, the first deer I killed with my bow was 10 years ago at 50 yds but I shot at least every other day for 2 months before season opened and knew I could hit at 50 yds just as good as I could at 20. Never tried a shot that far since but that's only cause the deer seem to be cooperating a little better these days and I don't practice near as much.
Other than that, I've killed from right under my stand to around 30 yds, I guess my average shot at a deer is around 20 yds.

In my years spent in the woods with a bow i have killed 47 deer , 25 of them being Bucks. I have never had to take a shot at a distance of more than 25 yards. I killed my first deer with a old hand me down re curve that my Uncle gave me when i was 8 years old . I shoe the spike buck right out hay loading door of my grand fathers barn . That was my first shot at a living target . I am 37 now and haven't missed a season in the woods yet
Uncle George always told me that if you work hard at getting to know the deer in your hunting area and can plan on the right stand locating for any particular day you should never have to shoot more Than 25 yards.
All who resist will die
