    Default Official 100 yard shot Pictures and Video thread

    This thread is for posting pictures and video.

    Post up your 100 yard , 3 shot groups here. Make your targets something like a 10 inch paper plate. Post pics of where you are shooting from and the distance to the target and your group. Video is even better. Include a photo of your bow with the group.

    This is just for fun and to give us something to work on while waiting on deer season.

    Now lets get to shooting!

    First post. Took 2 days (30 minutes shooting each day) to nail down the aiming reference but got it figured out. I am sure you target guys can do better, but this is just my hunting rig.

    Well, the weather was nice this morning, sunny with only light winds, so I took the chance and went to the woods.
    I fixed a second 9'' paper plate above the target thinking I could use it as an aiming point, but when I sighted up I realised it was nowhere high enough LoL.
    Ended up using a branch on a tree some 20yds behind my target and putting my 75yd pin on it!!

    The bows used are the ones I shoot 3D with, both AlienX's, both equiped with Limbsaver Prism sights (the all metal old model) 7 pins, Limbdriver rests, and my own 8'' stabalizers.
    The 40-55lb camo bow is an '09, 305gr @ 300fps, the 45-60lb black/skullz bow is a '10, 335gr @ 300fps.
    Arrows are GT Expeditions, cut from both ends and spine indexed on a spine jig.
    Fletchings are 3'' parabolic feathers set with an offset.

    I'm going to have another go at this when I get chance 'cos I think I can do better

    Good job Kev!!

    If you started from scratch in that area and didn't loose any arrows you did great. I picked an open area knowing I would be dropping arrows all around until I figured out the aiming reference. I still ended up walking around looking for arrows the first couple of tries.

    Good looking bows too.

    Nice job.

    Thanks hawk.
    There is added incentive not to miss, the ground in the parking area where I have that target is all gravel and flint.
    I managed to keep them all in the foam luckily.
    Shot 6 arrows from each bow to get an aimpoint then went for the group.

    Next time I'm going to pin something to the tree for a more definative aimpoint than the branch.

    Why not just re-set a pin?

    Because if his sights are like mine, you run out of room to adjust your pin downward. I had my pin on the bottom of my sight housing and still had to aim at a tree limb.

    As hawk said!
    The bottom (7th) pin on each bow is right at the bottom of the adjustment slot (the top pin is also right at the top of the adjustment slot).
    As these are the bows I use for competition and all set up, I don't really want to mess with dropping the whole cage to bring the pin down to 100 yards.
    Ergo, have an aim point above the target.
    Accuracy will be just the same as long as I get a definative aim point.

    Ok, went to the range again today, decided when I got there to have another go at 100 yards.
    Little bit of wind gusting on a quartering angle from behind me, otherwise a nice warm sunny morning.
    Pinned a plate in a tree 20 yards behind the target for an aimpoint and let rip.
    two arrows at 55 yards from each bow to warm up and then straight to 100.
    Three groups with each bow.
    This is the 55lb AX.
    As you can see in pic 2, I very nearly robinhooded an arrow, I would have had mixed feelings about that one LoL.
