A nervous deer at 10 yards is more likely to jump the string than a calm deer at 50...
    You sort off lost me on that one.

    I wonder how many deer are hit and not recovered in Ontario in a year.

    Okay so this is a perfect example of what NOT to do and what boils my blood!Attachment 38864
    I don't care how good of a shot someone says they are, or how fast their bow is, whether it be a crossbow or compound, etc., these bows despite what manufacturers say are not for long range shots on live targets. It's irresponsible! For a bow, anything past 30 yards is pushing it for the very reason shown in this photo. You're bow hunting. Learn to get close which is what bow hunting is about. It may shoot like a rifle but it's still a bow and a deer can still jump the string or turn like the one did above. The guy just got lucky is all!
    What ticks e off is how many times things like this happen and they never find the animal. It's irresponsible to take long shots like this!!!
    I shot a buck yesterday afternoon 35-40 yards approximately. He had enough time to turn and look at where the sound came from before the bolt landed. It made me think that if he jumped the string I would have completely missed or worse. After that experience Iíve learned my bows limit for an ethical shot.

    Congrats on the buck! What model of crossbow are you shooting?
