Course Outline

Although the average hunter has a maximum effective range of 30 yards, most bowhunters shoot game from a much closer range. They know that the chance of wounding game increases as distance increases because:

  • It becomes more difficult to hit the vital areas
  • The arrow may be deflected by unnoticed brush
  • The longer the arrow is in the air, the greater the chance the animal will move
