    I would say some where around 5% do 3d's probably a few more hunt.
    We shoot out to 50 yards or 45.7 meters
    We are a mechanical society when it come to doing things. Anything that makes us feel we have an advantage we will use.

    What type of animals do you folks bowhunt..

    Do you have any pictures? Smokes:smokin:

    Great trophy!!

    That looks like some very steep & rough terrain where you are hunting. Where is that?

    I will be seeing Lukas Novotny's show tomorrow in Baltimore, Maryland. One of the clubs here, Baltimore Bowmen, has a traditional shoot every year. Lucas was there last year and is scheduled to be there again this year.

    Holy Smokes is probably right about the 5% overall, but at this shoot it's 100% traditional. :biggrin1:

    Hey you sure are some great type of bowhunter.

    Are those animals good to eat?

    They sure are one of God's beautiful creatures.

    How do you sneak up so close to them?

    Who can hunt there?

    Y holy

    am not sure to be understand your question because my english is very very bad :noidea:

    but these animal are realy good to eat !

    How do you sneak up so close to them?

    I know the teritory and the isard perfectly because y was "born whis us"

    but it's a realy hard hunt and i kill one isard approx evry 3 years except in 2005 and 2006 " i ma lucky !!!

    for the hunt we have 3800 hectares whit env 630 isards we could kill 8% off there ( 50 isards)

    every body could hunt isard you need to contact OFFICE NATIONAL DES EAUX ET FORÊT in france
    but is not the same price than me and the succes is not garantied !!!

    I am not sure make a good respons of your question but tell me if it's correct !!
