Took Peeker and a buddy out the other day. Peeker and I jumped two in some peaches ,all we had was air rifles. And late in the day Peeker misses a easy shot With my 243. Today snuck off with out them to try to stick one of the two we jumped. And I left all my arrows at home ,well I still had 14 in the quiver but no back ups.
First two stands had them come in and slam on the brakes at about 60 -70 yards and warp out of there. Tried for some rabbits and squirrels . Killed three arrows and lost one or two. Only got one squirrel. $40 + squirrel. Late in the day was in the orchard that we jumped the two. Got at the far end of the orchard ,Did some rabbit stuff and in maybe two minutes had on at 30 yards and closing Took a shot it stumbles and gets up and vanishes. Im in some peaches thats kinda clean inbetween the rows of trees but where the trees are its two to three feet tall. Its getting late and the moon just came up. Thinking this might not be good. But pretty sure I hit it.
About twenty minutes later I find him . only went maybe 25 yards. Strait on chest shot at 10 or so yards.
Another big guy,had some scars and a touch of mange.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
