In this video Scott from WAC Outdoors demonstrates just how lethal an arrow can be a longer ranges when fired from a recurve bow. The results may surprise you, especially given that the bow that Scott is using has a very light draw weight of around 40lbs.

78 yard Bow Kill

This hunt took place in North Central Ohio. My buddy Todd was along to film for me. We got out late and decided after bumping a bunch of deer out of one field to head to the other and just set down. A giant doe came out and had a very bad limp and daylight was fading so I made the decision to take the shot. We practice at 75 yards often so I felt confident I could seal the deal. This was a hard video to edit because we were in such a hurry we didn't get a lot of video of everything going on up to the shot. Live and learn. The main camera used was a Cannon xa10 and the second angle camera was a GoPro Black. Thanks for watching! Ephesians 2:8-9

Old School Bow Kill (Graphic)

I dusted off my old original bow, camo, tree stand and broadheads in an effort to recreate a hunt the way it was when I first started bow hunting. So travel back in time about 17 years and watch a throwback archery hunt. (FYI it looks like the deer is moving at the end but it was just my hand moving I guess, it was a very quick kill.)

37# High Performance Bamboo Bow Penetration Test compared to 40# wooden bow

SPEED KILLS! Get the Fastest bow you can shoot with precision accuracy. For this test I decided to use simple crudely made arrows not razor sharp by an means to prove they would penetrate even at a disadvantage. Even though I have shown this before and have harvested many large game animals with my bows under 40lbs some still doubt it. Most recently I had several people asking me if my lighter draw weight High Performance bamboo bows would penetrate a boar shield, or plate. Here you go.. Relying mainly on momentum to push these barely sharp broadheads through. The broadhead gets more dull with each shot. A high performance bow even of lighter draw weight that can shoot hunting weight arrows at high speeds creates the momentum to penetrate.
To learn more about the bamboo sinew composite bow in this video go to

No fast flight bowstring used in any of my testing. Ever. No sharpening in between shots. The steel point is legal size for my state - 7/8 inch wide and the stone is 1 inch wide. Steel broadhead arrow weighs about 580 grains, and stone point arrow weighs around 430 grains. If these had a proper razor sharp edge both would have penetrated even deeper. To be honest that stone point is terrible compared to what some knappers can do...much sleeker and sharper version equals much more penetration..but I like to see what happens under worse case scenarios 1st.

In this video I also show what a moderate performance 40 lb wooden bow can do,,,,or cannot do when facing a boar shield! This oak bow would most likely not have harvested the boar even with only a 1 + inch shield. This moderate performer would however harvest a deer. Do not shoot a pig like you would a deer...the vitals are more forward and lower.
Even though both bows are around 40 lbs or less you can see my bamboo composite bow got more than twice the penetration that the oak bow did on the 3 inches of boar shield.

Also keep in mind you don't have to shoot the thickest part of the shield on these animals. Quartering away with front leg forward offers an ideal shot placement for much better penetration..basically the armpit. Your skill with an efficient well made bow, proper arrow design and arrow flight all adds up to better penetration.

Byron Ferguson travels the world doing live exhibition. I should note, that Byron doesn't call himself the Best archer, or the Most Amazing archer or anything like that. These are my words, because to me, he really is the most amazing archer.
He's a cool dude with the right balance of humility and confidence, and I have an incredible amount of respect for him as a person. I'm under no obligation to recommend that you hire him for your live event... but I do. Book him through his wife Wanda here under Exhibition Shooting.

Circle Packing Calculator:




Note: I realize that circle packing isn't a perfect way to quantify this. It was a new geometric concept to me that I had never used and really liked the idea of exploring it. It doesn't take into account an edge hit or grazing shot, for example... but all in all I feel like it's a great way to get a quick feel for the difficulty of hitting a target.

Thank you to Matthew Feickert who coded the equation in LaTeX for the video.

In this video we wanted to test how far a 9mm is in fact capable of producing a potentially lethal wound. We do the standard pine board test that Barry demonstrated in the How Far Will a .22 Kill video, as well as a bit of ballistics testing at long range. Do you think the 9mm will penetrate a clear ballistics torso at 440 yards?

In this video we revisit the original How Far will and Air Rifle Kill video and lob some big, heavy .45 caliber projectiles out to 611 yards. This video was filmed in the fall of 2016 and has been postponed due to some file corruption and the loss of our downrange target footage. You can clearly hear the impacts if you listen closely so we finally decided to post it. The results pretty much speak for themselves, there really isn't any stopping a lead bowling ball once it gets going. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

penetration test using a bamboo arrow, cold forged point, and bamboo horse bow all made by me. This was my original design. New design has videos of it below. But as you can see this bow is more than enough to take down large game. This shot was done with a hardly sharpened point and the bow actual draw weight at my draw length was just over 35#.
My first reason for hunting is to help feed my family healthy free meat. I respectfully make use of the entire animal. 2nd is to grow the skill/ art of real hunting so that I can teach my children how to use all of their human abilities to feed themselves if need be. Without relying on modern technology to make the job easier. This video is to demonstrate the effectiveness of my handmade horse bows or any primitive bow for that matter if made with high efficiency in overall performance. In case there are any doubters.
