What part of this post don't you understand, He didn't shot, pretty good decision.
Sharpening skills, Most here LR Hunt because they have killed all they want to at short distances. Thus sharpen a new set of skills, thier ability to place one shot kills on animals farther than most opening day lead floppers.
If setting up a vantage point/shooting position, practicing 12 months to be proficent, glassing for undisturbed game for hours on end, and executing an accurate shot on an animal, is not hunting.
Then what you do is nature walks in the woods with a noise maker.
