    Default 100 yard group thread ?????

    Summer is coming and the weather is warming up. I was wondering if anyone would like to take part in a 100 yard Rytera / Martin group thread. Where you post a pick of where you are shooting from to the target or even better a video of you shooting a 3 shot group at a target at 100 yards. Make the target something like a standard paper plate.... 10 inches or so.

    It would be just for fun and something to pass the time while we all wait for deer season. (Heck, I have never shot past 50 yards myself) just thought it might be fun.



    ANYONE WANT TO DO THIS?????


    (Mods. sorry if this is the wrong place for this)

    Cool thanks for playing along. I thought more folks would have wanted in on it but guess not.

    So do we just keep this thread going or start another one when we start shooting?

    I walked off 100 yards at work today.....that is going to be good strech for shooting. Should be fun!

    Who knows. Maybe Martin might get some good propaganda out of our post!

    I took some pot shots at a 100 yard FITA target this summer, and boy is it a poke! First shot hit the dirt, second hit in the lowest ring, 3rd Bullseye! I couldn't do it again if I tried but it was a huge kick in the pants... my friend that was with me had to pick his jaw up off the ground. We left right after that, figured that was one heck of a way to end a range session LOL

    I'll try again this coming summer and see if I can get a video of me missing the target... bet I can't get anywhere close to the bull LOL!

    I'm in if I can get 100 yards here after some clearing. I've done 100 before, but not with my Firecat.

    I'm in. I just picked up two mint Alien x's last week. Both will be hunting bows, but I like playing at long range with my hunting rigs. Hopefully these will be as accurate as my old Alien X that I never should have sold.

    I'll be in if I can overcome my problem of posting pics.
    I'm gonna try from my laptop to see if that makes a difference.
