I was taught just last year that a 40 yard shot is just iffy, and I'm 30 yrs old...I probably have started bowhunting a little late, and I am confident at 40 yards...but 14 years of shotgun hunting in upstate NY, there is a fine line between popping a shot (hail mary) and making your mark...I think the diffrence between bow and shotgun is bow has to be within 40 yards to make sure of a kill shot, shotgun has 4 more shots to finish the kill, and with shotgun, as an ethical hunter I only pop a shot at 100 yards if I know I can pop another before the deer goes out of site...therefore with the thought of having only one shot, I will only go 40 yards or less...(with a bow)...
your mission if you choose to accept it, is to go through the boiler maker to get to the Gut Pile Style

do you have certian distance you would take on your animal your shooting at?
If you mean maximum distance, yes. I know my limitations as to my skills and my limitations as to what I am shooting. Like you folks, I wait for a clear shot that is safe and within my lethal range.

I once shot a fly with my bow at 175 yds... ??? In all actuality, when I was younger, I shot a rabbit at 100-125+yds... one catch, though. I shot the arrow straight up to see if I could watch it's flight and when I went to retrieve the arrow, which landed directly behind a fence post, there was a cotton-tail pinned to the ground. :shock: For an intentional kill, 45yds is my personal limit; however, I have yet to actually use any of my bows for hunting. :-[

 ok, my 2.5 cents worth not being a bow hunter but having a couple of them somewhere. Those longer shots i.e 35 yards or more, I had heard that deer  or whatever can hear the string noise and have ducked below or at least out of the way before the arrow gets there. Seems to me a deer  wouldn't hang around the same spot waiting for an arrow to come sailing along.  ???

Nextly for the guys that are shotgunners for big game. I am presuming that you hunt in fairly thick cover, how much time do you have for a second shot even with an autobanger??

I have, in the past. I still have an old compound I spoke of in another thread and a small recurve that my mother-in-law was tossing out. Haven't shot a bow, other than to try sighting in some new sights I have for the compound, in a decade easily. There's a shotgun range nearby and Imight see if they'll let me set up a target out of the way to give it another go. O0

I like the carbon arrows, but I'll go with whichever's on sale, for the time being. O0
