    Wel that was a challenge. If you take on a level 51 Pumpkin, with a bow, take plenty of ammunition! Definitely "boss" level.

    Level 23 archery, a quality Shortbow, max. range shots and it used 64 arrows. I was only hit a couple of times. I had assumed the pumpkin was the easy target, but that would be the high level :-)

    What would be nice on targets would be a health indicator. I was beginning to think I needed gold tipped arrows or maybe throwing wooden stakes :-)

    I've finally bought a Shortbow and done the maths and make it about 20% more punch on the Shortbow compared with the Hunting bow. Which is interesting to know. I'm suspect the good Quality rating will also be factored in.
    Time to see how well the more rapid shot timing works against those Carnivorous plants I guess :-)

    At the start, I was amazed, when an Halloween boar attacked me, but I survived. I did note three bodies on that trip, so some others caught out. I am tempted to try killing a fox, but the standard ones usually kill me. 😞 I do rely purely on the bow, which is probably a mistake.

    I've got used to the Halloween animals now. The pumpkin usually misses you, as long as you keep moving past at an angle. I have tried shooting the pumpkin at extreme range, with a hunters bow, but I was a sitting duck in the long static draw stage. After 100 hours of play I have no complete plans for a faster shot bow yet. Probably should buy one. I have been wondering whether the more advanced bows have much more hitting power. They are faster, but with less damage per shot. I haven't done the maths, but I would hope there is a gain there somewhere.

    There seemed to be some kind of fast repeat effect in the new YouTube video, which is interesting.☺

    Hah. Something I hadn't thought of trying😞

    In Destruction mode, I reduced my original bed to dust, then destroyed my nice new hide bed..
    Sadly I then followed it up, with a beginner's mistake of dieing, having found the Treasure Hunt hot key, so a random restart left me a long way from home😞
