    Default the three hundred yard shot

    I guess I need to practice more. I don't think this guy is advocating long distance archery hunting, just shooting. Impressive shooting.

    I would have bet money against that - and I would have lost the bet. Wow.

    It's pretty impressive that he actually took the time to figure out how to do that...!!!

    I wonder if Robin Hood used to do that instinctively...???........lol

    I would have loved to see the angle he was sighting at. They zoomed in so far you couldn't see anything about how he was shooting, just that he hit. Pretty impressive for sure.

    (It probably would have taken me more attempts to hit that balloon with my 06.)

    Not if you had a guy in the woods just off to the side shooting the balloon with a pellet gun at the right time....

    I used to practice at 100 yards a lot. With a 300 yd pin it doesn't seem unrealistic. Arrow's got to go somewhere!

    Ha... If you knew the guy and knew how good of a shot he is, you wouldn't be singing that tune...

    Just saying that he is one hell of a shot and he would have no reason to "fake" that...

    Video is still there, its just the link in the first post that doesn't work. Search "300 yard archery" on YouTube and you'll find.
