Well yesterday was my first ever time shooting over 100 arrows in one practice session but just really digging my new Spyder Turbo and after a bit of shooting 40 yards, decided to test the Trijicon's claim on my sight. I started shooting 60-65 yards and what a blast. Just curious who else does it.

This is NOT for any sort of hunting purpose but figure by stretching it out would help for shorter shots.

I've been doing it for years; I start at 40 and then shoot out to 75. Two years ago, I shot a minium of 200 arrows during the week and a lot more on the weekends I didn't have a match to shoot. But since I was in a serious car wreck a year and a half ago, my blance was messed up and I had to recoop.
Yes long distance shooting is the bomb.

Got a friend who does that at around 75 yards but bulls eyed at 100 yards once. Lucky shot.


A man can never have enough guns.

I sling a few that far. I always shoot the usualy 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 but I will reach out to 70-100 every once in a while. I impress myself at times.

I do occasionally just for practice. It sure makes the 25yd shots seem easy.

Back yard only allows 54 yards.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

I used to a lot with my tourney bow since it has a scoped single pin adjustable sight. Wasn't uncommon to shoot 100yds with it on a regular basis. Since my bottom pin on my hunting rig is set for 60 that's as far as I go with it.

Back yard goes to 66. But shoot 75-100 when ever I get a chance

When you get bored shooting close, get some five spot targets and see if you shoot 300 30x. that will not bore you.

Used to do that all week before a tournament.

I shoot out to 80 just for fun. After shooting a bunch of arrows at 80 my bow seems blazing fast when I walk over to the 20 yard target and fling an arrow!

Yup I had never done it before, I am going to incorporate it into my weekly routine, not a lot just a few.

i practice at targets at 75, just for fun.

I'm accurate enough for hunting at 50-55 yards, but limit myself to 30 and under on game.


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

I tried 75 yards at cinnamon creek and my sight only goes to 50. Did ok but would never do it on a live animal. Just too far. Unless you are shooting a bigger target. Like an elk!!
