The cool crisp air tonight has fully alerted my internal clock that bowhunting season isn’t far off! Here’s a good short clip of a hunter harvesting a nice Michigan whitetail, something I hope to be doing in less than a month!
Notice how well he placed the shot in the lower vitals as the deer quartered away. Remember to practice shooting at different angles to make sure you can place the arrow correctly when the deer inevitably shifts positions. And don’t take a quartering towards you shot, it’s much too likely that you’ll hit the shoulder and potentially wound the deer. Be patient and responsible, wait for that good broadside or quartering away shot and send the arrow straight to the vitals.
