Now That’s A Good Day Bow Hunting…A Double Deer Morning
Say what you will about hunting, either you’re for it, or against it, but it takes a certain skill-level and patience to go out in the woods and sit quietly waiting for your target to come along. There are those on the left, who believe that we shouldn’t be allowed to hunt for our food, thank goodness those people aren’t in-charge. What those folks don’t understand, that when we go out to hunt, we are actually practicing good conservation. Hunting thins-out the population and is actually better for animal conservation.
Bow hunting is a very specific skill-set. Modern hunters have an arsenal of weapons to hunt their prey, and perhaps the most interesting and challenging is the bow. Thousands of years of history have just gone into bow hunting. And even though the tools we use today are far different from the tools used in the Stone Age, the skills needed to be successful at bow hunting are essentially the same.
Today’s arrows fly further and penetrate deeper. Bows are stronger and lighter — and compound bows are more complex. Blinds and stands give us an advantage over our predecessors, but skill, intimate knowledge of the game and the ability to move quickly and quietly across the terrain is a skill that can take years to develop.
So, imagine my surprise when the guy in the video managed to get a ‘double-header’ on his hunt. Most hunters are lucky to bag one animal while hunting, but bagging two, that’s an awesome days hunt!
Here’s what the guy who posted the video to YouTube had to say:
October 7, 2012, double deer morning, reducing deer numbers for the landowner and donating to Hunters Helping The Hungry (our 4th donation this fall). Our donations are sponsored by arrowrap.com, helping people in need at local food banks. The smaller doe was for my freezer!
