    What is the strangest thing you accidentally shot with you bow?
    I will be first.
    I drew back on my bow when suddenly it shot off (bad adjustment on release) When the arrow stopped it had hit a canning pot with a old electric frying pan in it.
    It went through the canning pot, through the electric frying pan to the other side almost totally through the other side.

    My Radio... I had an old boom box type (am/fm/cassette) in the basement. Didn't fair well against a pass through on an old target while practicing indoors one cold winter day.

    And he was still able to shoot the arrow after that.

    Shot the stern on my dads 17' Boston whaler when I was 14. Until then I had always shot fingers but I had finally gotten a release I started to draw back and accidentally hit the trigger releasing the arrow it hit the top of the target ricochet about 30 yards and right into the stern of the boat. I forgot all about that great thread!

    I can tell you this,had an arrow blow though a target last year and hit my fish pond's metal drain and the arrow went 90 degrees deflection out behind my garage.So anybody new out there,be careful of who and what is around your targets.
