    Well lets say he's shooting 280 fps and his animal was 246 feet away..........arrow "time of flight" was 0.878 seconds, a little over 3/4 of a second...........by the math it doesn't seem like much but watching the arrow fly it seems like it takes forever to get there.

    Well that's if you don't take into account the decrease of an arrow's velocity. That would be true if arrows lost zero energy.
