    I shoot out to 80Yds in the Field Round. But back in the late 50's when I belonged to the Longhorn Archery Club in Pasadena, TX as part of the Club Champoinship we shot the Clout Round. That is a Round with a target layed out on the ground with ropes making a circle about 15 or 25 feet in diameter with a flag pole in the center like a Golf Flag Pole and you shot at it from 180 yds. And that was with Recurves and Long Bows. Didn't have Compounds back then.

    Now that is what I call a long shot Bob, hell i bet you eat half of it by the time you get home, and then you have to do it all over again,

    Hi Roger,
    I only wish. Any thing over 40metres could stand there and blow raspberries in perfect safety. Still waiting on that razor x, and I'm not a very patient waiter either. Still a wise man once said all things come to those who wait.

    During the summer - up to 100m (about 110yards) - i've hit the target on the 10th shot, about 2-3" above the X, without using a pin-my sight is set to 70metres... In all other seasons i can only shoot in the backyard - 15 yards
    2008 Martin MOAB - 45-60#, set at about 51-53# / 55#" Perfect Line" compound/ 55# Mongol horsebow/ 45# "Perfect Line" takedown recurve/ 45# Bearpaw Grizzly hunter recurve/ 55# Samick Longbow Cheetah ... and several homemade bows

    That's too bad. Now I will have to remember not to take my 70 yards for granted.

    Don't worry, it wasn't because of my skills, just luck. The other 9 shots were out of the target (well, all less then a foot of it). I didn't try this distance anymore, because there's too much walking and i had only 4 arrows

    Well, I shot at 100 yards yesterday, and out of 10 shots, only 3 hit. This was because my sight only goes to about 90 yards, so I had to estimate where I should put my pin. It was cool to watch my 420 grain arrow fly to the target though. The only arrow I lost was when I shot at 60 yards because I thought I was at 70 yards! That arrow flew over the target by 5 to 10 feet!

    That is why I use a range finder, with it I have not lost a arrow in a long time at that kind of range I can't judge very well and I know it.

    That's probably the only piece of hunting equipment I don't own, so I walked the entire length while counting each step. Of course, each step wasn't quite a yard, so I walked a little farther beyond 100 steps.
