OK, one of the reasons I’ve been bowhunting for 40 years is the rush of getting the animal in close.
I’ve shot bucks as close as four yards to the end of my arrow, had turkeys attacking my decoy for ten minutes only one yard further.
And personally, you haven’t lived until you’ve had a big, mature elk walk up and bugle, and destroy trees, in your face from only 12 yards away.
But…I’m not sure I’m ready to have a rut-crazed, world-class moose nearly walk into my lap and then shoot it.
Seriously, I really don’t think I could have held it together.
