Yep...at 17.3 yards you can get away with A LOT on a deer! :0)

I agree wholey with you Ray.... (not sure if thats how you spell "wholey"...but there ya go)

So...the Olympic Archers are fairly well recognized as the best right? Could some of these guys...like welch or whoever... spend some time and likely be very competitive as Oly shooters??

And...are OLY guys really the best? I've heard alot about the IFAA shooters in Europe being so great. Could they be better and just choose NOT to shoot OLY?

I had so much fun shooting field today that I am going to ramp up my shooting a bit more and see where it takes me. I think a new bow is in order too! This old bow has been doing well and I'll keep it forever, but a 66"...super smooth, super fast double carbon cut WAY past center with a rest that is going to keep all fletching FREE and CLEAR ....is going to be the ticket...I'm also going to do something that makes my grip absolutley consistent...dont know what yet... :mrgreen:

Sorry for rambling...

At unmarked hunting shots with Welch vs Oly, my money is on Welch.

well, here's the thing. Do ya think just because an archer shoots olympic style that they never shot shorter distances? Lets say somehow magically, I can hit a quarter at 90 yards, does that mean I never tried shooting dimes at 20 yards?

I personally would say, "No" to both questions. ;)

At the last IFAA Worlds, wasn't a new Field Round Record set with a 15-20 year old Hill Style bow?

Yes it was :)

Jim Fetro in a competition shot a 288 indoors with a deep cored straight risered longbow and wood arrows. Whats the the record across the pond....265?

288 is only 7 points under what Limbwalker shot at the Nationals with a full blown OLY rig.
