Tell that to the 8 point i shot at 85 yards. Stopped him with a "meek" and he turned and looked. Did not jump the string and the arrow passed through and stuck 10 inches in the ground about 15 yards past the deer

Bought a 10-point RS 470 and it will flat out sling it. Accurate too. First time I shot more than 3 bolts at a target at 90 yards I broke a bolt. Very impressive pieces of equipment.

I shoot inside of 40 yards.

I get that Raven can hit at 100. The others probably have longer ranges than 40. But I can't in good conscience shoot an arrow at a deer 100 yards away not knowing if it's going to flinch, duck, jump, turn or something else.


Yep. No way I’d try a shot beyond 40. You may get lucky and kill it but way too much can go wrong.

I was kind of forced to buy one, with the new regulations for some "urban" hunts and military base thinning hunts in N.W. Fl. stating CB only I ended up buying a Ten Point, it is a tack driver but still not near as much fun and or challenge as a compound or long bow

Not a rifle by no means, but with the right conditions and know how drt. Like bows they do have more variables to consider and things that can go wrong than a rifle. Some good videos out there to look at that makes the kill rate close to 100% excluding user errors.

if my shoulder does not improve, i'll have to go to a crossbow. but i'm thinking a light weight recurve, sub 5.5 pounds. 40 yards plenty far for me ...

I used to follow a guy on YouTube where one of his frequent guests on the show head shot a doe with a compound at something like 60 or 70 yards. Dropped the deer in her tracks, but could have been much worse and was complete luck to be fatal. Rather that sharing the hunt as a bad choice in the shot and getting lucky, they treated it like a "trick shot" and laughed and carried on about it. Unsubscribed and won't be back.

Shot a doe at 70 yards with the Ravin. She went maybe 10 yards. The rest of the does just stood there.

Don’t care how fast a bow/ crossbow is. You will get bit shooting long ranges with an arrow. Push much passed 40 yards and your gambling period.
