Today's shot will be the follow-up. Take your first shot at 9 yards, then walk back to 25 yards and give it a try from there. Hope everyone has a blessed, and safe day.

Good call NL. 9 yards is pink. 25 yards is white. Happy with it. Throwback (Bob) wanted me to thank everyone for all the positive comments and congratulations on his NY doe thread. His computer is down and it will be a while before he can replace it. This troubles me because he only recently found Leatherwall and I believe that like a lot of folks on on here it has breathed new life into him.

The 9 got Frisky the plastic squirrel but the 25 was low left. Thanks Big John and a great day to all. My hunt yesterday was uneventful as for game sighting but a success nonetheless.

Sort of a fun call so I tried it twice.

Thanks Big John!

I shot from an elevation of 12’. The 9 yard shot was deadly. The 25 yard difficult because of a horizontal obstruction from our maple tree. The arrow clipped some leaves and hit the target low and right. I tried a followup crouched down on my 2’ step ladder and it hit close to the golf tee. It still clipped the leaves. I need to trim out my shooting lane.

I've been enjoying the RER and the Viper lately that it has been a while since I shot the old Hunter.

My eyeball must be off, because between the short range (9) and a likely speed differential, it looks like all this one got on the first shot was a scar for bragging rights... "Yeah, if I had'na ducked, it woulda been ALL OVER, lemmetellya...."

Then at 2X the distance.. yeah. Just BAD. But 99% non-lethal on this one, too....

Thought I owed the bow a second chance after at least a month off, so here are shots 3 & 4. MOGB and much more like it.

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday! It is a good thing for me and the critters that I do not rely on the bow as a harvesting tool... well, not yet. It took me three attempts to produce something reasonable, but you guys set the bar pretty high this morning.

Great shooting everyone and as always, thank you for the call an opportunity.

Kindly -

Shot as called. 9 was good but I blew the 25. Thats what I get for shooting the arrow and not the spot. Great evening and Blessings to all.

As called between rain showers. I added the vertical obstructions to the shot. The 9 was high and the 25 hit the left pole.

Thanks for the call Big John

Grabbed my '67 Kodiak Hunter @50# and some POC's. The 9yd is centered and the 25yd isn't! Good shooting today folks. Have a good rest of your day. Lance.

Had a muggy sit in the tree stand this morning watching squirrels. 9yd shot was an inch or two right where I was looking, aimed for the 1st arrow on the 25yd shot. 9 is on the left, 25 on the right.
