Careful, ethical archery hunters don't shoot 'hail maries' at running animals... yikes man - reevaluate what you're doing. That post reads REALLY BADLY.Yeah I struggled with this post for a few days. It didn't read like a joke but if so my hat's off Steve, you got me. I didn't come on here to bicker with anyone but on the other hand my latin teacher used to say "qui tacet consentit." I don't consent. In fact, I struggle with my bowhunting adventures already because there is such a fine line between wounding and killing. Much wounding/lost game happens by careful, ethical hunters without this cavalier stance.
You think I shot at a running animal with a bow? Maybe i should reevaluate my wording.Every time I shot I expected an animal to die,I didn't actually just point and shoot in the general directionCareful, ethical archery hunters don't shoot 'hail maries' at running animals... yikes man - reevaluate what you're doing.

I believe that's shit advice.I hunted montana a week and shot at 5 bulls.first two hit branches,third was a hail Mary running after a herd,fourth I walked into a herd passed a 5 waiting on the 6 and the herd smelled me and exploded,I barked to stop him and guessed 60 he was 50.5th shot was a frontal coming straight at me, at 15 yards he paused for a half second and I shot.as i shot he started forward again and his head went down as he did and caught the arrow on the nose.the previous 6 years I was 6 out of 6 and I believe in taking every shot opportunity i get even if it's not perfect.
