    All cats are feral in my neighborhood. Right after we kill them and remove their collar and tags they become feral.

    five deer and one coyote. the deer weren't any monsters, mostly does and one nine pointer, not a mounter. Missed a really big at only 15 yards, rushed the shot, and a tree branch got in the way on another good sized one. I can smoke a doe at 30 yards with my eyes closed but have a clean miss on a 150 class at 15 yards. He was following a doe and would not come any closer then 30 yards from her. It was getting dark, the doe was ten yards from me and he was 40. After about 5 minutes of this he lets out this loud grunt, almost sounds like the buck growl. He starts bolting towards her and when he is 15 yards from me I grunt with my mouth as loud as I can and he stops facing me. I have the pin buried between his two front quarters but did not take the shot. He then turns broadside and as I move my bow up to shoot I release before the pin is on him. Had to tell the story, it might help with my emotional breakdown and my therapy. Still glad I didn't take the head on shot, although it still crosses my mind, "what if?"

    opps I need to add to my list, we usto go in the ditches when they shut the water off and shoot the heck out of the trout and takem home, was fun chasin them, water was about 2 feet deep, also nailed a few rock chucks and a porky pine... o and clover&oats, at 15 yards i would take a front on shot any day of the week, I shot a small whity buck at about 29 yards, and my buddy has taken 3 bull elk both dead on facin him, first one was a dandy 6x6 at about 55 yards, went about 60 yards and fell over dead, the second was a rag horn at 25 yards, he went about 25 yards and fell over, and the other was a nice 6x6 at 8 yards, nailed it dead center right in the neck, it droped on the spot. You want to make sure you gettem in the center though, not to far to the left or right.

    You are so right on the dead center shot. It is a very high % shot . It is like hitting the x ring. How many times can the average fella do that standing still under all but perfect conditions. If a fella might wait he could get that right shot which would almost gaurantee him the animal . If not animals are creatures of habit and habitat he will be somewhere close by.

    Our world of instant gratification and a competive spirit and pride ( not producing) has spoiled us as humane hunters. I would hate to see one run off with my arrow and never find him and the maggots eat him slowly . HS

    Default Jumping Carp

    I've got some friends in the Terre Haute area that have been shooting these water rats with shotguns and bows on the Wabash. If you get your motor speed just right, they'll jump pretty close to the boat. They've been using bow fishing rigs and shooting em like they were shooting skeet. They had a ball but made a real mess of the boat. These things are pretty thin skinned and they bleed like a double lunged buck. They had a show on the Outdoor channel and one of the guys on the show dropped his $600 compound in the river. Never did find it, so he started using an old recurve. That might have been a good choice to start out with. Some folks have been severely injured and I;ve heard of a couple fatalities from people getting hit at high speeds and knocked out of the boat. One guy lost an eye. These fish average about 10 lbs around here.

    Thanks for the welcome. How do I get the snakes to shoot? I point them at PETA members.
