I've seen film of Howard Hill using a long bow on a lion, at a full run, across the path of the arrow. Perfect hit.
He was as proficient as an archer can get.
His work is some interesting reading for archery buffs. Well worth your time.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
