I guess he's one of us that thinks the arch should be left in archery. That's what it's designed and intended for. If you're only accurate out to the point your arrow starts to drop or arch then that's not archery.

Todays bows allow longer shots to be taken. With a good sight and fast bow the shot can be made. The question is: was the shot ethical? I know my max yardage is 30 so I would have had to wait for a closer shot or another day. Chuck Adams might say 67 yds is well with-in his kill zone. My son with his Mathews can shoot 50 yds day in and day out. Every hunter has to know his max yardage and stay in it! I wish I could see one of those bucks inside of 25 yds he'd be history.
