I think you just need to get closer.
Probably never found it's head either?

I hope to get one in close in a week, but I need to be prepared for that coyote at 40 yards too.

That youngest boy you met at the Expo missed one with his bow
opening morning, looked a lot like the bird you harvested, a REALLY good one!

We'll probably give the arrows one more try this weekend before we break out the shotguns.

Nice bird Sawsman. We had birds on all 4 setups this morning but between hens busting us and Toms staying out of range, we couldn't close the deal. At least we get to do it again in about 8 hours lol.
