Bullwinkle? Next he will write about how he took a 100 yard shot with a bow and dropped "bambi" in her tracks. Then, upon arriving to the scene of the kill he realized it was a complete pass through of the eyes.
Was this article a joke?
The moose are not the only "bull" in this article. It's a scientific fact that they have poor eye sight. It's odor (notice that giGANtic nose) and sound (huge ears in front of built-in satelite dishes) that give you away. Cheez-um. . how close does he expect to get while the moose stands there squinting, trying to recognize him?
And the .243 at 600 yards. . . even if it did happen, no responsible hunter/author should go telling everyone about it. I think it only encourages some other numbnut to try the same thing.
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
