I was never all that great with a compound but I have to agree. The last hunting show I watched that wasn’t Barta was about 2 years ago, and a guy killed a bull elk at 80 yards with a compound. To me, that’s not bowhunting.

The most obese man I’ve ever seen was hunting at blackbeard island last year with a compound and claimed he was going to kill one with his 70 yard pin in the savanna. Pathetic.
