For those of you who practice all the time to be able to shoot 80 and 100+ yards with good groups, i think you should be able show off your accomplishment and be proud of yourselves. you don't have to brag about it but its nice to show off your accomplishments. everybody shows off their trophy kills so why not your shooting abilities!? i would really like to see your amazing groups at these ranges. im sure like myself, you all enjoy the challenges and improvements in your form that you gain from practicing at these ranges. there are a lot of great shooters on here that are going to raise the bar for me and give me new goals to shoot for (literally haha). i can't wait! please be honest with your groups and yards. also be respectful, thanks.

please include:
distances (80+ yards)
broadheads or field points (if broadheads, what kind?)
set up (bow, arrows, measurements, etc)
Speed your shooting at
Pictures if you can (always better to see it visually)
also if you are shooting past 100 yards, what is you pin set up

i hope we can all learn new things to tighten up our groups aswell to make us all better bowhunters. shots like these make ones from 50 yard on a deer, cake!

fire away everybody, im really excited about this! :thumbs_up

ill start, i shot a group of four arrows today @ 80 yards in a 5-6 inch circle. i would say that this is a little better than average for me, but not my best.
then i shot at 100 yards and shot an 8 inch group. also a little better than average. ill post some pictures in a sec. im hoping to move out to 120 soon but i don't have the pins. this is another reason why im interested in your pin set up.

i would also like to add that videos are really nice to see if anyone is up to it! helps to learn even more and if you are worried about believing you this makes it pretty credible.

I'm practicing for an elk hunt in AZ. I've been shooting about 7" groups at 70 yards, which is good considering that I use a fixed single pin sight !! Hopefully I'll get a much, much closer shot than that . The last time I was drawn, my kill shot was at a lazered 50 yards

Dang I couldn't hit a paper plate at 100. That is awesome. I'll blame it on the fact that my slider only goes to 60 or so.

Oh if you want the ultimate in long range sights get a sur-loc lethal wepon max i have one that was on my old ultra tec and it was good for 140 with broadhead clearance. But it got retired due to having to move it to shoot anything past 70 and cost me a real nice bull at 76 yards so now it is fixed 9 pins for me.

CM+ maxed out at 61.45#, 60X BCY 452X strings, 10" Bernie Pellerite Control Freak stab w/6 oz weight, QAD Ultra rest, Hogg-It sight.
Load the arrows with 100 gr Spitfires and go hunting. Screw in the Easton parabolic tips and shoot spots, 3D, target. Nothing else changes.

That 60 yard group was with a sims S coil stab and a hha slider sight with a .019 pin. Carbon tech panthers with regular ole bohning signature nocks and 100 grain tips. The arrows have a very consistent spine so I give the arrows the credit for how well I shoot.

Porterhouse your 60 yard groups are better than my 30 yard groups...and I shoot at 40-50 yards almost daily. Holy crap.

I didn't start shooting that well till I bought a whalens hooker. Just hold on target and pull through the shot. Arrow goes where I'm looking if I do my part. As I said though, I have bad days also. Flinched last week during my shot and wrecked my arrow by hitting the hard rubber on the bottom of the bales at the range. I really hate wrecking arrows >:eek:
