Hey Roksliders, our 2nd annual Cold Bow Challenge kicked off May 5th.  By entering, you can find out what your true maximum effective range (MER) is. Many archers told me last year this was a real eye-opening experience, but the challenge made them better hunters with more realistic expectations.

I shot last year’s challenge at 70 yards with field points.  For this year, I’ve decided to pull my MER down to 60 yards, and I’ve switched to broadheads to more closely mimic real bowhunting.  Each person can choose his own MER for the challenge.  There is a traditional and a compoud division.

It’s free to enter the challenge, but you must be a Rokslide member.  Link to the challenge is here: 2018 Cold Bow Challenge

If you’re not a member, join at the top of the forum at that link.

Also, Rokslide has some great sponsors who’ve kicked in hundreds of dollars in prizes for our winners.  Complete the challenge by June 3rd, and you’ll be entered in the drawing for those prizes.

Here’s a quick video of Day 1 of the challenge for me (you can enter with video or photos):

Robby Denning
Robby Denning started hunting mule deer in the late 1970’s, only missing one season in 35 years. At 25, he gave up the pursuit of all other big-game to focus on taking the best bucks possible. He began hunting the West on a DIY budget hunting an average of 30 days a year for mule deer. Robby loves the hunt as much as the kill and the entire process from research to scouting to hunting. He’s killed four bucks over 200 inches in the last 15 seasons, mostly on easily-obtained tags. He owns a public-land scouting service and runs a private-land outfitting business helping other hunters in their pursuit of deer and elk. Robby has scouted and hunted literally thousands of square miles of mule deer country and brings a wealth of knowledge about these experiences with him. To him, the weapon of choice is just a means-to-an-end and will hunt with bow, rifle, or muzzleloader – whatever it takes to create an opportunity to take a great mule deer. He is also the author of "Hunting Big Mule Deer" available on Amazon. Robby believes all of creation is from God for man to manage, respect, and through which to know its Creator
