Bow killed Roosters, Nope not good enough to stick them in flight, or rich enough to launch arrows into the sky and hope to ever see them again.

However, It's not much less a thrill to me to pin them to the ground from a stand!

Very cool. So were you in a blind? Or did you stalk them?

Actually one of each on this hunt. I think I have 7 now with a bow this year, but today was the first stalk and shoot.

I also caught one alive when my GSP pointed it, I was able to get close enough to see it and jumped on it catching him under me.

Cool, I have tried to draw on a couple from a stand but they catch me!

I always wanted to take a long bow and a flu flu arrow after birds...

Looks like fun! Did you use a broadhead?

Yep, Flu Flus allow you to retrieve the arrows. Not so much without.

We don't have larger birds here for my recurve and arrows, but I always wanted to try geese but never got that far.

Pheasants would be fun and a bit larger than trying it with doves. But years ago I managed to pin a few doves with the arrow while deer hunting....

I've tried a Flu Flu with the small four ring wire head. However the arrows must be full length so the wire loops don't hit the sight. With that setup they simply do not shoot well for me........ so far.......... I guess I will default to stand hunting and the low cost. My son was tossing a trash can lid like a frisby and I could hit that nearly every time. It's a bigger target and much slower, but you get the idea of how things work in flight pretty quickly!

Two California Quail today, just cannot get that third bird. By the way, bow hunting Pheasants and Quail has proven to be very nice for butchering and cooking. What a Joy without the random steel or lead shot I was biting down on in the past. Rarely happened but that steel shot can be expensive on the dental work!

Cool, wish we had some birds around here to pluck with a bow. I did watch "Michigan Out of Doors" the other day and they were shooting snow show hare with recurves and longbows over hounds. I think I'll take my old pooch (GSP 13yoa) out for a slow hunt for bunnies or whatever with my recurve. I haven't seen a pheasant or quail in years around here but plenty of cottontails. She can hunt trash I guess at her age and I won't care.

Very impressed with the bow-hunting skills.

Is the quote true? Or were you being facetious? Quite intrigued
