    I like a Bowie knife for up close hunting and a 30-06 with 165gr boat tails for long range 300yards +. I would use a sniper 50 cal for long range but they are a little to expensive for me.

    Why did only 5 archers shoot clean at Vegas?

    Was it just bad luck, the lighting, bad equipment, or not as much talent as usual?

    Maybe the rules need changing to include the top 20 shooters in the shoot down.

    This should be like kicking...
