Closest kill with a bow

There been a lot on the longest bow kill. How about getting close. When you are under 10 feet of your game it is a rush.

Re: Closest kill with a bow

I have not killed a lot of animals with a bow but I can tell you that the black bear I killed at 5 yards...Yes I said 5 while sitting on the ground was quite a rush. The Bear was 230 lbs field dressed. He was killed in North Georgia September 2011

Shot a 6x6 bull a couple years ago at 5 steps away from me but it was severely uphill so it was real close to 10 feet. A big animal that close and above you like that was something else!

I steered a bull right up through my buddy and the shot was at 1.5 steps from his feet to the bulls front hoof track.
