Feel free to post how far your shots have been this season. I'm interested to see the average distance.

You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

Doe I shot this year was at 5 yards. Years past my shots have all been 12-20 yards. I can only think of one deer presenting a shot at around 30 yards in all my years of bowhunting.
