Draw your own conclusions

Much of the allure of bowhunting is the challenge it presents. Many things have to go right for a bowhunter to successfully harvest game.  First, the quarry has to be at close range and unaware of the hunter’s presence.  Then, the bow must be drawn without alerting the animal, and the shot has to be made accurately for a clean kill.  Finally, the animal must be trailed for a successful recovery.
