Parker maximum distance ?

Before the distance police get their panties in a bunch I take about a few thousand shots at targets for every one released at game. I know a lady who shot for hoyt who was deadly from 70 yards and beyond. I want to know how far I should be able to shoot a Parker Tornado at a target (figuring pretty good abality and lots of practice )?

Re: Parker maximum distance ?

Give us some dope on your bow # and arrow + weight + broadhead specs. Some astrophysicist will crunch the numbers and come up with a number. You are shooting at what: Grizly Bears, Elk, treefrogs, Yetti - what?

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Parker maximum distance ?

I guess it depends on how much elevation you can get out the optics out there. If you put together a scope like the Parker Pin-Point on top of the HHA Optimizer scope mount, I'd imagine well past 100 yards.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I keep it 30 and in. But I'm the type that likes to be able to see the whites of their eyes when I pull the trigger.

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity

It's fun to play around with 100 yard targets. You should be able to get 6 inch groups or better with the Tornado.

Re: Parker maximum distance ?

Is it at or near the top of the heap for all around accuracy ?

This question is about the next one i get and not the two I have so i don't know all the specs yet. I would shoot at a yeti though.

We must do what we can to payback the Yeti for what it did to those guys just trying to have a little fun in the beef jerky commercial.
