How Far Will An Arrow Fly?

When we were kids we used to shoot arrows in this big open field just to see how far they'd fly. I'm sitting in my turkey blind bored a little bit and started wondering how far an arrow will go out of my compound bow. Anybody try it?

Not as far as the "English" claim their long bows used to kill accurately during the middle ages.......Pfffft

I have a pond below my house that's roughly 375 yards away. I often think about launching one off my deck and seeing if I can hit it but I already lose to many overpriced arrows every year.

I know right? You figure if you post something like that you'd give it a look. Haha
You people do know a mile is 1760 yards.......right. Not 1336. And that's a WORLD record.......not Joe average shooting in the backyard.....and NOT a foot bow either.....gezzzz. The guy also said well over a mile. I think some people will argue anything!

"Not even close to a mile" yet the first one on the list is 3/4 of a mile. Haha
So you consider 'off by a little'..................... being off by 1/4 of a mile- got it- grin

You guys know what the foot bow these guys are shooting to get those distances look like right? Not exactly germane to this discussion
