68 on first try, 92 on second. Running one and bedded threw me. Don't agree with some of the placements either - many seem too high and too far back for a given angle.

I didn't tell what my first score was but I didnt' figure it counted cause my bow wasn't sighted in and the broadheads they give me opened up in flight nor did they give me the proper spine arrows.

Remember you need to tune your equipment!!

I got a 72 on my first go round, but a couple of the shot placements they want will result in some long tracks (not to mention the angles). Especially the ones with their front legs back. I'd really hate to see a new bow hunter base their decisions off of that game.

If that game is accurate I am going to have to get a couple more quivers to carry all the arrows I am going to need...

Wish there was one for Black Bear. Could have used it last year. Practiced and practiced with a 3D target. When it came to shot time I hit right where I aimed. (The ten ring) Didn't consider the angle and the amount of fur. Had one ****** off 350 pound boar when I bounced a buzzcutt off of his ribcage.
