    Don't mention the unit # to the masses
    Kinda curious aboit the unit number deal. Whats your reason for stating that? Ive noticed some guys will tell all ( myself included) and some don't mention it.

    I think it depends on how often you hunt it. #2 & 3 kind of go together. Want to tick off folks tell them you hunt a unit that takes them 8+ yrs to draw that you (as an outsider) could hunt every year.

    Actually I believe that I am very open-minded on this subject as long as everyone else agrees with my position exactly! With that said, the only true way of establishing a true "never exceed" distance is this...

    On any standard atmospheric day with calm wind, take the average of three(or more) solid throws of a preselected buffalo chip through a chronograph at precisely 12 feet from the apex of your throwing arm and square it.

    Take that velocity squared and divide by 450400 and multiply times the weight of the buffalo chip. This will provide the Kinetic energy of the chip.

    Next, calculate the distance that you personally can throw the chip and multiply that by 3. If any animal is beyond that distance, it's too far! Works every time! Don't forget to compensate for density altitude before hand.
