Arrow maximun distance
    #11342020 - 10/28/09 11:48 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Well this will be fun.

For halloweenthis year, my friends and I are going to hang strands of 8,000 - 16,000 firecrackers from a grain elevator's cat walk in a town that a party will be in.

The cat walk....at the most...is 75ft high.  Do you think a compound bow be able to lob an arrow with nylon string attached to it over that cat walk?

Give me some thoughts.  Thanks!

I look both ways before crossing the street, 4 times.  It's not because I am affraid to get hit by a car, it would just be a real inconvenience.

Don't make a wish.  Make a decision

My idea of gun control is a firm grip!

How strong is your bow? I mean, how many pounds pull? And what kind of nylon cord?

I teach archery, so give me a description and I might be able to help.

75 ft? It should work. You're talking about fishing line or similar, right?

I bet you could use fishing poles, come to think of it.

Yep, fishin' poles would be excellent if one of you has a good arm. Also much less likely to cause [noticable] property damage.

Draw weight is 60#.  About 320 FPS.  I know I can hit a target at 40 yds with it.

The nylon string is very light. I use it for trot line's on the river.  It is about 1/16" thick.  Very light.  About have the diameter of VISCO Cannon fuse.  Sorry I can let you know more about the string.

I think we might try using a fishing pole.  That would actually be a better idea.  But I dont know.

I will let you all know how it goes!

Also...the town has a population of 800.  So the people will be shocked when 16,000 fire crackers get lit at 1:00 AM

fishing pole wont work, the arrow will reach the catwalk but it most
likely will stay in the grating unless there's no walk platform left
