Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?
You will enjoy the thrill of taking that first deer with a well placed arrow.
If you are lucky and drop the deer in it's tracks, that's even better. If not
remember to wait at least a half hour before starting to blood trail.
Be sure to look for your arrow first, an arrow that has passed through
the animal can reveal a lot. Even a well hit deer can run a long ways as
much as 200 yards. Keep looking, sometimes they pile up in a small
depression and are hard to see. Don't forget to flag your trail.
Depending on where you hit the animal it is wise to wait three
or four hours.
You probably already know all that, but a reminder now and then is
good for all of us.
