Shoot out to 100 all the time and when you step up to 50, the target looks like a ups truck. I got an elk hunt in about two months so I been at it hard.


Good luck! Which broadhead are you going to use for elk?

Shoot out to about 65 yards mostly, thats as far as I can get here in the yard. Love it when I can get some where to stretch it out. Lots of fun and makes 40 yards in a chip shot

I can shoot very long distance here at the house but I seldom do though. Some of the local shoots will have novelty shoots where you can win prizes or money for shooting long distance, so it's always a good idea to have a pin or yardage marking for 80-100 yards on there...just in case you want to try for one of the prizes. I won $140 some odd dollars last yr at a shoot on one of these types of games, long dot shooting @ 100 yds.

If I shoot at longer distances a lot, I've noticed it sort of hurts my short yardage game. I get over confident thinking they are chip shots if they are closer than where I've been shooting from the most. I shot a 3D shoot Saturday in Known 45 class and was drilling 12 rings at the longer distances from 40-46 yards...but had four 8s that I shot...and all 4 of them were on short distance targets. Go figure.

Im not %100 sure yet, I know 125s for sure. I may end up with Crow's favorite ol' 2 blade rage. All my friends use 100 grain 2 blade rages and 350 blue streaks, which is what I shot anyway. They said they have never had an arrow not pass through. Il keep you posted. Oh Yea and Happy Birthday!!!!

don't know the exact distance but I shot one over the trees when my loop broke at full draw - used to have a bad habit about pointing bow up when drawing- needless to say I learned not to - so, however far you can shoot a 70lb draw pse pointing upwards is as far as I've shot - hope its not in a rooftop somewhere - other than that - 60 yards

Another good thing with the longer shots it you have plenty enough arrow flight time to see if your arrow is flying straight or thus needs further adjustments.

Never shot more than 40. My bow isnt fast enough to shoot at that distance. And i have my single pin set dead on at 24yrds so i dnt like moving it. But wen i step up next yr (new bow) i might give it a try
