Yes, Getting close is one of the greatest thrills of the hunt.

There are many ways of getting close. My favorite is the tree stand,
at 25 ft or less. Then there is the ground blind. The toughest is the ground
stalk.

Practice Practice and Practice.

I used to bow hunt, but I finally hung up my old Bear Kodiak (purchased new in 1967). I have not used a compound bow. The old Kodiak has become nothing other than a work of wood art I keep in my "man-cave."

Some of those old, (If you want to call 40 something old) recurve
bows were made from some beautiful wood. Those old Boyer's
really know their business and turned out some really functional
works of art.

I have a few of those wall hangers in what I call my office.
Every once in a while I will string one up and shoot a few arrows
in the back pasture at a couple targets setup back there.

Re: Do you hunt big game with a bow?

When I was in the Air Force in Amarillo, Tx, in the late 1950s, there were not many options to us young and broke dudes with no car and having to live 10 miles from town. We got into shooting .22 rimfire pistols, model airplanes and especially bow/arrow stuff.

There was a very good field target range not far from the base. We fletched, nocked and put points on our own fiberglass and aluminum arrows. The fletching machine was made by the Rhode company; I don't know if they are still in business. The parts were purchased mostly from an outfit called the "Bow Hut" in the Los Angeles area. I still have my old quiver and a few of the original arrows. Compound bows hadn't been invented yet, otherwise I would have probably purchased one.

Most of us shot "instinctive" because bow-sights weren't really perfected at that time. Modern archery equipment manufacturers really have their acts together. I'd try the bow gig again, but I have been made lazy from using rifles. Well....not really too lazy. It takes a fair amount of work to reload cartridges, and I should be out there in the garage doing some annealing, but ran out of propane.
