:yeah: this is the first full season I've worn vias.  This stuff is freaking amazing!  Not only is kuiu ridiculously comfortable but the vias in particular is great camo.  There's been multiple times already where members of our group have been as close as 100 yards away on an open hillside and you literally aren't visable.  I've also walked right up on deer up to like 20 yards that just stared my direction without being skittish at all... I'm a believer now!

So give it up, did you aim for the neck? I ask because a 200yds my front sight covers a pretty good size area at 200yd.  What sights?

I know people (not me) can shoot a long way with open sights I just have my max about 150-165.

Yes at 200 yards its hard to see the target but that's why I aimed for,the neck.  I followed the top of his back and held straight under the back of the head.  You're right, at that distance it would be tough to aim for/see the vitals.  Usually at that distance I drop about six inches but it only dropped about four, not sure if that was environmental or if I didn't hold quite right.
