    My buddy Inferno4me just got a new ballistics program for bows. It's really cool. We put the parameters in for my slow bow IBO 272 as it's set up now, and the arrow weight and set up and get this.....at 100 yards my arrow is still carrying 58.9 foot pounds of pressure. More than enough energy for a pass through. Not sure due to ethics, that I want to attempt 100 yards but I hope I get the 75 yard shot this Fall. I've been shooting my jake decoy at 75 yards in the neck 1 out of every 5 tries just for the heck of it! Thats a 2 inch vital. Going to change up to High Country Speed Pro's this year. 272 turns into 315fps. Still slow by new standards! Some of Inferno4me's bows he's set up are shooting over 350 fps! Amazing!

    Bow Shooting
    Now Don't take this the wrong way but my Paw-Paw told me this and i have always remembered it.

    A Archer tries to see how far he can shoot a Target but a BOWHUNTER tries to see how close he can get to his Target

    My Motto....DEAD IS DEAD-NO MATTER HOW FAST YOUR ARROW GOES!!!! LOL

    Pawpaw's right!
    GT your paw paw is right.....I've had deer under me that I have spit on. I've shot them straight down and backboned 'em. Now it's time to pass 'em through at 75....just like that margerine lid last October....lol! It's all good!
