Miserable day here today so I went to the library and picked up this book. It is interesting reading to say the least. Fortunately, Mr. Hill didn't post the accounts of his hunts here.
Only a few chapters in, but he killed an elk with his long bow at 185 yards. Took three shots to hit it, but he killed it.
Seems to me, some posters here would have a field day with taking an 185 yard shot with a long bow.
His bow had a draw weight of 110 pounds. Can you imagine pulling it?
My recurve is only 58# and it is tough.
