Have fun on the targets!
And always remember, deer and other game are not simply targets.
They are living beings, and deserve the respect of a close, clean and ethical kill.

Cheers,

Amen to that, I hunt with a rifle mostly, I am fairly new to crossbow hunting just wasn't sure of the real capabilities of the crossbow as well as the "hunter". It is helpful to hear all of your comments. Confirms my suspicions that the range should be far more reasonable to be sure to make a clean kill.

Under great weather conditions n no wind it is doable. It really boils down to can you live wid the shots you make n not kill but cripple ! I prefer my shots 60 n under n so fer the farthest i have shot n killed a deer was 47 yds a few yrs back. I have never shot any that far n crippled one, i jus have shot that one that far.

the real challenge of bow hunting is shooting animals under 20 yards. I save the long pokes for my Savage 10ML ii.. Lol

Bow hunted for 30 years - crossbow for 3 years and I have never shot a deer over 28 yards, and most have been under 18 yards.
I like the challenge that comes with getting close and personal for archery season. :mrgreen:

My furtherest shot on an animal is 37yds...and that was a poke for me.
To many things can happen past 40yds that you cannot controll and none of them good.
Good luck :D

I guess there’s a chance a deer would jump the string and land by the time the arrow got there so you might just be able to hit him :shock: :lol:
