I would think a chance at $10,000 would make the 4 hour drive worth it if I thought I had a legitimate chance.

everything dialed in for 100 yards, I bet that would be a 1 in 100 or so shot. Pretty good odds for that kind of money.

Inside 3/4 inch. Yeah I think I would have a chance but the odds are still way better that I'll miss. At 100y you can't even see a 3/4 inch target. I shoot 0.01 pins and they cover up a lot more real estate than 3/4" at 100. Would still be a whole lot of fun to try. Good luck to all who give it a go.

Hey Robert, what happens if more than one person hits inside the circle? Do both get the $10k, split the money, or is there a shoot-off?

Then we will have a shoot-off. we are also going to do a different shot for a hoyt hunting bow. It will probably be an animal somewhere 35-45 yards and who ever hits the 12 ring gets the bow.

First, WELCOME to the GREEN SCREEN! Nice to see our site continues to grow with new members hanging out here.
Nope, I am not much for HSUS. Local shelters tend to be legitimate but that is sometimes sketchy from first hand accounts of former employees. So, lets unpack this as I am not sure if you are "serious or joking":
1. What is ***? Maybe an incomplete sentence?
2. Is your lion reference a joke?
3. Did I mention HSUS are vehemently against all hunting...Ö...rifle, shotgun, bow, pistol, trapping, blowgun, spear, knife, etc.
4. Again, welcome to the BEST site on the WWW!
