Ek het al 'n pyl so 45 grade in 'n geploegde land afgeskiet.
Hy gaan maar uit jou gesig uit, maar as jy met die bakkie afry, sien jy darem die oranje fletchings regop staan in die land.
Dit was nie maklik om te range nie, maar as ek reg onthou, was dit so amper 400 tree.
Maar dit was 600gn pyle teen so 238fps met 68lb boog.

Distances shot
The furthest distance shot with any bow is 2,047 yards (1,871.84m) . This was shot by the late Harry Drake in 1988 using a crossbow. The furthest with a hand-held — and pulled — bow is 1,336 yds 1' 3" (1,222.01m) , shot by Don Brown with an unlimited conventional Flight bow in 1987. My 40kg Compound World Record of 1,162 yards was made shooting a 30 kg bow — I can't pull 40 kg!

Distances achieved in Britain include:

Conventional Flight Bow (unlimited): Alan Webster — 916 yards
Compound Flight Bow (60 lbs): Barry Groves - 914 yards. That distance has since been beaten

Jaydee, Kevin Strothers hou huidiglik al die boegneomde rekords behalwe die eerste een van verste aftstand met enige tipe boog. Maar verder het hy elke liewe afstand rekord wat daar is al gebreek en is huidiglik die rekord houer.
