    longest shot you ever made on a deer

    What was the longest shot you ever made on a deer? Did you recover it and what broadhead were you using?

    56 yards here, G5 Striker ran about 75 yards here too. I would never do it again. I understand it in the west but in the east 15-30 yards is too common to shoot farther. just my opinion. No issue with others shooting further just not for me.

    Farthest shot was 45 yards. It was an old doe that must have been shot at before. It's the only deer I've missed with a bow as well. She was very relaxed, browsing eating acorns. I took the shot when she was broadside head down and right as I shot she must have heard the shot or the arrow in the air and jumped forward a full body length. She looked over in my area, still within effective range for a target but I didn't want to take another shot on her. I knew she beat me. Farthest kill shot was 35 yards double lung fell within eye sight. (Slick Tricks)

    70 yards when I was young dumb and could shoot like a sniper. Only went a few yards and fell in sight. Used a thunderhead and was 100% confident in my shot. I killed and elk at 53 yards and a bunch of whitetails at 50 to 60 yards. If you can shoot well and pick your shot it can be done. Confidence in your equipment and shooting ability make it happen.

    38 yards... one of these two.



    It was almost exactly 24 hours before I shot him. He turned on a trail and was almost trotting away from me at 35 yards when I loosed the arrow.



    You can see the entrance hole just in front of the hip. It exited through the off shoulder.

    None of them went more than 75 yards. 438 grain GT UL Pro with T3's. 62# Supra ME at about 282 fps.
