Getting Her Pointed Shooty On

Try a 448 pound Black Bear with a bow.

I'm stoked that our kids are still interested in hunting and shooting. It's tough to get them to leave their high tech gadgets long enough to get outdoors for a walk much less hunting Bears in Canada. Jessica has a great Bear and an even better story to tell her high school classmates.

About halfway down though is my favorite quote of the article and made my whole week:

"The average bow shot is made between 17 and 22 yards from your target, whereas, with a gun you can be as much as 60 yards away, Folsom says."

Maybe he meant 600? Just guessing.

As near as 60? Heck at 60 I'll just jump out of the tree and kill them with my knife.
