    un measured not sure used to fling arrows all over the place as a kid shoot at stuff just to see if i could hit it some of them from a long ways off.. last spring I drew my Bow an aimed Sky ward in a large field like i did as a kid Just to show my son How far my arrow would go.. He asked I showed him rather he see me do it them try him self.. any one care to guess How far a 500 grain arrow will go outa a 70 lb bow will go ...OUTASIGHT. to fall back to earth 100 yards away..
    Know distance I hit a peanut @ 103 yards twice...lol 3D Elephant our club has.. lots of 80's,like to practice @ longer distance makes the shorter shots easyer
    It's all fun an games till you put that big boy on the ground.. now its time to get to work

    I shoot only my trad bows in the sky. With the compounds it's not fun - the arrow vanishes after about 100m. May be it'll be fun to shoot an arrow with a lumenock in the night sky. At least people will know where to find you in case the arrow lands in your head

    years ago i shot a York round that included a 100 yard target (FITA 48" face") and that was with a 38 pound recurve. not everybody hit the target.

    This year so far the longest was at a 3D bowshoot yesterday. They has a Buffalo target at 66 yds. Like to say I "X" ringed it, but I choked.....hit high just outside the "8" in the shoulder.

    I use to practice on a 100yds range quite a bit decades ago, and a few of my hunting buddies and I use to launch arrows a long ways out into in dry meadow at our hunting camp to see who could get closest to a small dark bush.........can't remember what we measured it at, but it was every bit of 300yds and a couple of us overshot it now and then.

    shot at deer a couple of years ago at 83 yards and didn't hold high enough. arrow fell about a foot short, deer just stood there looking at where arrow hit the grass and then booked out of there like his butt was on fire.

    The range I go to has a 4' x 4' square target with the print of an elk set out at 80 yards. I only have up to a 60 pin. Raised a little skyward, I hit the target at the bottom middle. A little higher and I hit right above his shoulders below his antlers. Needless to say, I was just happy I hit the target! lol

    I do shoot out to 60 yards every once in a while, and shoot at 40 quite regularly. When I really concentrate, I cant put 2/3 in the 2" circle at 40, but usually hit groups about 5-6" at that distance... I need to practice more!

    So far just 60. Would like to stretch it out some just to be able to do so and help with my effective range.
