Default Traditional FSC Week 18

The shot this week will be simple, but the distance will vary. Just take a normal sized sheet of paper, and trace a penny in the center. Shoot at the dot from whatever distance you believe your maximum effective range is that you would shoot at a deer. Whether it's 10 yards, 20 yards, etc. Measure from the center of the dot to closest edge of the shaft. Closest to center wins!!

Max distance on Whitetail:
If conditions are perfect for it - 25 Yards.

Max distance on Muledeer size deer & up:
If conditions are perfect for it - 40 Yards
I played peek-a-boo with the arrow on this one, and faded the shot to the right.

Makes a lot of difference when you "know" the distance.
I always carry a range finder, and use it in various ways depending on how I am hunting.

Thanks.

Side note:
I need to repair the center of my target butt real soon, or the arrows are gonna go through. Rubber horse stall mats don't seem to be stopping them.
I may go get some compressed straw bales from tractor supply.

Rick

I have a 15 yard limit on deer. Here’s mine.


About 1.25”. I had it in my mind that if everything was right I may shoot out to 25 at an elk sized animal, but right after this I shot an arrow at 25 and missed the paper about an inch left!! But I’ve been practicing at 25 a good bit and normally that doesn’t happen.

Very nice, CRM!

Rick: DANG, man! That's strong!

I may just have to enter my 23-yard "12" from last weekend's state recurve shoot.

Nice chootin fellas!

Im changing finger release form from split to three under. Nock point got got bumped up last night. Left handed...nice horizontal fletching right tears. Time to cut tonight. If I can get squared away...decently enough...Ill shoot 10-15 yds.

Right now...point blank is all Ive got. I was thinking Rick would still beat that...sure enough...1/8” still beats my point blank.

Might shoot a little farther, but pretty comfortable at 18 yards and don't mind being about 1-1/2" out.

1 7/8" for me. Bow hasn't been strung in over a month so this was for sure a FSC for me. Stepped out to where I felt comfy and let er rip. Paced it off and it was between 14 and 15 yards.


Richard.

I think I got this one. Waiting confirmation.

If/When confirmed, I'm calling on Ellis (tradtiger) to make our call for this week.

No, but had a blast!! I had never in my life turkey hunted before, but got invited to a place out in Menard for the weekend. Saw a few hens, and actually got a couple gobblers to answer me when I was calling so that was pretty cool. Never could get them to come in though. I learned a few things and got invited back for next year. So somewhere out there, there's a turkey living on borrowed time.
