    60+ yd shots, which bow would you shoot?

    If you wanted to shoot at distances over 60 yds, what bow would you choose and what stats would you look for?

    My Anarchy. 7.25" brace, 35.25 ata shooting my arrow at 300 fps. It's more accurate than I am, super forgiving and fast enough to get the job done.

    I'd pick one that I could shoot well at those distances.
    I shoot bows. All kinds of bows.

    My opinions are MY OPINIONS. Take them for what they are worth.

    I'd use one of my target bows. Around here there is no reason to take a first shot at game at that distance.

    If I were shooting game at that distance, I'd go with my UltraTec.

    Most bows are capable of that distance. The bow (and arrow) to use depends on what you are shooting at.

    60+ yd shots, which bow would you shoot?

    All my hunting bows have been 30 to 34" with zero issues past 60 yards

    For a target rig, I would really look at the Supra

    Given the parameters within your question..........
    A really accurate and well tuned one that shoots tight groups and that I can shoot real well.


    What I have on hand that I would use wtihout hesitation and that I've used to shoot paper at 80 yards.
    Target: 1) PSE Supra 2) Rytera Alien-Z
    Hunting: 1) Darton DS-3800 2) I don't have another hunting bow that I think I could get to group real well at 80. 60 maybe but not 80.

    I'm just curious as to what people would say (I have a reason that I don't want to reveal right now for the sake of the thread), but several asked for the situation it would be used for so I'll elaborate a little. It would be a hunting bow that is FUN to practice with at long ranges. My definition of fun practice is very few flyers. For those worried that I want to shoot game at 60yards that isn't my goal.

    Flyers are a grip/form issue and usually not a bow issue. The longer the shot the more I catch guys "peeking" and throwing follow through off. Just about any bow, set up properly will do the job just fine.

    All of my bows shoot that far really well but my specialist is the best.

    I shot my CPXL in a field round last summer at 48lbs and 70 yards. I was happy to hit the target as I did not have a sight mark for 70! I grouped pretty well out to 70 with that bow!

    they also can be an arrow issue.

    Im personally shooting my Pulse out to and past 60, I wish i could say the 2" in ATA made a difference in holding versus my old D350 but I dont think it does, however the side plates do help (had them on my destroyer too) and the speed allows for a flatter trajectory. I dont shoot this far at game rather practice year round at longer distances up until about a month before season, Its really improved my shooting.

    My favorite 60 yd shot was last year at a iron buck to win a bow, I was nervous but when I drew back my specialist it settled in and drilled the center. Just a few weeks later I had a big buck at 60 yds and I passed up the shot and I have regretted not taking the shot all season.

    60yds isn't that far...Any well tuned bow shot by an archer with good form can stack arrows at 60yds.

    Dominator Pro 3D or the Supra. Both are 36+ axle to axle and hold very steady.

    Ok, I see a lot of people saying they will pick (X) bow for long shooting over other bows, and a few people saying that the bow isn’t important (the shooter is). Let me pose this question: Let say you have a bet in which you could win or lose an all expense paid monster buck hunt in Kansas in which time Alabama’s quarterback’s girlfriend is your host and roommate. To win the hunt you have to have a 20 shot group at 60yds the size of your fist. No misses! You are going to have the shoot in 6 months. Are you willing to use the bow I choose for you (it is the shooter’s form after all) or do you want to choose your own bow?

    My Destroyer 340 performs fantastically over 60 yards. I can't imagine you'll find too many bows on today's market that aren't 'performers' beyond 60 yards. Furthermore, a reasonable IBO speed, 6"-7" brace height, and 60#-70# limbs are all things I look for when purchasing a new bow. I think I can correlate that to your question because often times I'm taking shot over 60 yards every hunting season. Good luck with your search!
