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.

38# 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. 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.

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?

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.)

In this video we show just how far a 45 ACP is capable of retaining enough energy to cause a possible fatal would. We were only able to connect at long range with the 230gr Federal American Eagle FMJ loads on the pine board. We did fire a very limited number of the 230gr Federal HST loading at our Clear Ballistics Torso with no success. We will revisit the subject of expansion and penetration at range in a future video. Stay tuned.

HOW FAR WILL AN AIR RIFLE KILL: PART 1:

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.
