      Best use of one of those heavy things I’ve seen in a good while…

      Big rooster or a very short guy!:D

      Have to admit it was a good shot. More ways than one. 😀

      Jeeze! I don’t think I could do that with a bow, even a compound… You just can’t throw a fit, or a bow any more without someone making a movie of it…

      Maybe that dude wanted to get “cast” in an archery clip, so he cast his bow on troubled waters…

      Maybe, and so that’s a fun senario

      One thing for sure, JPC, if you hit a rooster with most of the compounds out today, it’d be like hitting it with a high brass load of chilled #6’s!:lol:

      For sure but, Wheel bow are made to be throw ….

      On an other way I would not do that with my 1900 € Border Cover Hunter Récurve !!!

      I will be entitled to a spanking coming back home :shock::lol:

      Me too with mine!!! 😯

      On the other hand, Fred Bear used his bow for a wading staff!

      Course, he prolly knew someone at the plant to get them cheaper I suspect 🙄

      I would like to say I’m proud of this hunter. He risk the cost of his bow so a wounded bird did not get away. I would like to think i would do the same thing. A bow can be replaced but i would never forget that bird. I’m sure there are many Online anti-hunter that will cry over this video for quite some time.

      John,

      Interesting viewpoint and one t o be considered! Nothing running around with an arrow sticking out is good press for us, that is for sure!

      When we shotgun hunted them, I used to say don’t stop poppin caps till they stop flapping flaps. Roosters can take a lot of punishment and run off to die.

      Nice view. Thanks for sharing that…

      I have Pics “that I don’t think i’ll post here” of me wading out into a freezing arctic lake in my boxer shorts to retreve a snow goose that when hit went into the middle of the lake to die. The sand in the bottom of the lake was so cold it made my toes feel like they where burning. There’s an Arctic hunting story for ya’s even if i had a dog i don’t think he would of went into that water. Sand and goose poop ankle deep

      prolly wise to eschew to post a pic of you in your under drawers!

      😯

      No way to top that, but up in the “high line” of MT on Freeze Out Lake project, they require a “visible means of retrieval” to hunt ducks, and geese.

      Best I saw, besides dogs in those thermal vests, were surf rods with big floats with huge treble hooks in them…, weighted of course…

      They’d chuck it out past the downed bird, maneuver around so the long rod had line near or over the bird…then “snag” it on the way back…

      Most ingenious! Your version if far more AK I think! Wildman you be!:lol:

      LOL it’s funny you say that i have “Fished” for downed pin tails under the midnight sun many a times. I like that going to be the title of my book “Fishing for pin tail under the midnight sun”. It kind of sums up doing your best with what you have in the arctic. Pin tails are one of my fav. ducks to eat but very hard to get a shot at over land. The great thing is if you shoot the female first the male will keep coming back.Funny who it doesn’t work the other way around.

      John,

      I “won” a drawing on a permit to trap Freezeout Lake for rats and mink.

      Slept in a wall tent on a treeless prairie in howling winds… I just was a spectator… MT actually has a drawing for Whistling Swans, which were reputed to be excellent table fare, but I couldn’t bring myself to shoot at a swan… so I just trapped.

      Guys would bring me snow geese. It was hilarious to check traps thru the day (and night… every 8 hrs like clockwork), and see guys with 10′ surf rods casting out to get their birds!

      I’ll pass on commenting on the lack of female pintail loyalty…prolly a thing of percentages perhaps…who’s to question?! 🙄

      well you have to admit those wheels and cables make an accurate bow he hit the bird first throw!

      LMBO!!

      Now there is a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) if I ever read one!

      Sure adds another perspective I’d not considered!

      That’ll keep me chucklin for a while. Thanks!
