I have hunted Canada geese with bow and arrow over alfalfa stubble, where they winter near here on the Navajo Reservation. That way you have a chance of recovering your arrow and those tremendously strong birds that will almost definitely run and/or fly off with your arrow, if it stays in. Recovery odds very low. I might try it for ducks over water with a good retriever. But I frankly think more of my arrows than I do of most waterfowl flesh (personal bias, sorry). Blue grouse and turkeys are challenge enough for me. Lots of guys like to shoot at pheasants with archery gear, very traditional. Here again you need a dog, preferably one that can sniff out arrows among corn stubble! 😆
