And Don, I am concerned about the shooting. I have a self imposed limit of 15 yards or so. Our guides will have a rifle along in case the cat is too high or too covered up to kill with my recurve, but I would really hate for it to happen that way. What’s the average height that you’ve seen them climb to?

Time for me to start practicing those upward shots.

How the heck do you practice like that? Flu flu’s? Otherwise arrow retreival could take a long time. Remember to bend at the waist , not with just arms. G Fred said it applies either up or down.

What would you shoot AT? Pine cones, maybe?
