What ride this am, A buddy and my self went out and were on deer right at light, Dave went left and I went right, I reached the top of the ridge that the deer had gone over, and was standing there glassing a little when I heard a sound up the ridge ffrom me as I turned to look a nice 3x3 with heavy dark horns was headed my way following a doe, the doe led him to 63 yards, where my arrow did the rest was a perfect double lung shot, he only went 25 yards before going down,

:bigthumb: :bigthumb: Congrats! Love those dark horns. Thanks for sharing that hunt and the picture is a real keeper.

Now from what your last two hunts your shots are over 60 yards - would you recommend that someone practice that distance to hunt out there? Just wondering. Seems I have read several articles where 40 yard and plus are somewhat common out west.

I have pins from 30 to 90 yards on my bow, I practice alot at long distance, but before I take a super long shot with my bow, all the conditions must be right, no wind, animal standing still, animal not knowing that I am there, if the shot is over 60 yards I will not take it unless those conditions are met,

Being able to shoot long shots with a bow will double your chances out here on taking an animal,

Must just be my imagination but something seems strangely familiar about that buck and the scenery. It's like I've been there before.

Congrats on the awesome deer. What did he tape out at?

Nope I was in a differnt unit than I had you in, I have not put a tape on him other than inside spread which is 24 1/2 wide,

Here is another view that shows where the arrow hit him it exited just about the same spot on the other side.

Great advice and thanks R L! I have five pins and two are at 50 and 60 and I know the 50 is on because last summer I had the opportunity to try it at that distance. I just have to make a practice area for myself out past 40 yards.

Real nice buck and one heck of shot!

Those of you that plan on trying the longer shots should also concentrate on practicing at those ranges "between" your "further out" pins. ;)
