How Far Can a Bow & Arrow Kill? IV8888 Explores with a Recurve Blow

    In a quick break from your regular powder-powered entertainment, IraqiVeteran explores how far a bow and arrow can kill. With assistance of Scott from WAC outdoors, Eric explores what an arrow can do.

    Rather than just shoot targets from a distance, Scott and Eric put an arrow through ballistics gel and “Ballistics Bob”. The arrow only gets 5″ of gel (which they discuss compared to real flesh during hunting which penetrated 16″ of Hog).

    How far (prior to watching the video) did you think the arrow would kill?
