    Fair Chase Hunting isn't so fair (for the hunter).

    So I have a nose that can't smell, eyes that need glasses, short legs that move much slower than anything else in woods. I really don't see how this is fair chase! These elk are way ahead in the game at this point! Hunter 0, Elk 4. Having fun with it anyway. Hope all of you other folks are having as much fun as I am. Enjoy your seasons! P.S. I really am having a blast!!!!!!

    I am feeling your pain mattm! It is my first year bowhunting and man is it a different world, there are so many things that you take for granted rifle hunting. I have had the time of my life this summer going after antelope and deer and am definitely hooked. All I have to say is keep up the hard work and the persistence will pay off.

    Same here, is it just me or can antelope run faster when you have a bow in your hand?

    thats cool, i've always wanted to try it, but can't kick the rifle...i've gone with friends to call and so forth for them but have never tried myself. Looks like its a rush, at least it is for me when i'm with them, i could only imagine when your the one behind the bow. i give you and all the other bow hunters props, cause i know it ain't easy...
