    Bryan,
    It's not an 80 yrd shot but it was a 50 yard shot in between 2 vehicles less than 12 inches apart with about 8 inches over the mirror. We measured off the building from bullseye and then to each vehicle edge where arrow would pass through (right at 12 inches). 3 arrows 3 1/2 inches high and 2 inches left with a baseball group.
    I didn't take pictures of the arrows though. Was cool... We have done it before but with about 2 feet in between.

    We shot about 30 times each with 40 yrds being in front of the expedition. We walked in for a break and I looked at the shot at 50 yrds and told them I was shooting it when we came back out.

    I listed target panic problems on here before and as you can see - no problems anymore.
    2 other shooters there, but nobody wanted to pay if they smacked something. Woo Hoooo! image.jpg

    For the people that are setting up heir bows, look up French tuning and follow it. My bow is on a string after the process.

    It puts a whole new perspective on things.

    We put other targets out front of the deer target all the time.
    It's like you have to miss something on the right (or left, below or above) to hit your mark on the deer.

    I only do actual vehicles - every once in a while. ha ha

    I have a fence post, and two trees to avoid to hit my 50 at home.
