    American Archer Wyoming moose episode

    Anybody else catch the Wyoming moose episode with the little yearling bull moose getting arrowed in the rump? I can hardly watch that program any more due to all the product placement ads but I had to check it out after hearing about some questionable shooting.

    It's one thing to make a horrible shot but probably not a real good idea to brush it off as if everything is going as planed and probably not in the best interest of the program to show the mess up. I will at least give him credit for finishing the job luckily!

    I honestly couldnt believe my eyes when I saw over half an arrow sticking out of the ass of that moose. And then to hear him say it was a good shot and he was confident he was going to find the bull? And telling his guide it was a "quartering away shot" right. What was he thinking?

    I'll be the first to admit that I have made some less-than-perfect hits, but excuses don't help the situation.

    I'm with ya BB,

    If you hunt long enough, your going to make a bad hit weather with bow or rifle. When your time comes, own the shot and finish the job as quickly as possible.

    I agree with what others have said, the worst part about it was the guy's attitude after the shot. Luckily, he was able to stick him with a killing shot quickly.
    Hunt hard, and trust your instincts

    It probably would have been useful to mention that one of the risks of taking a shot at a hard quartering away animal is the margin of error is much smaller too! At least from that viewers who didn't know any better could learn from the mistake.

    The moose didnt even looked barely quartered, dam near looked like he was facing straight away from him. I know bad shots happen because ive made them, but to take such a low percentage shot with a bow on an animal as large as a moose just isnt right.

    He could have come up with a better excuse like; "I was going for the glory hole!"

    Pretty disturbing shot alright, I found myself screaming at the TV (lucky no one was home)
    Hell he should have just taken the full frontal at 10 yards, he would have had a bigger target.

    His Guide looked alittle embarrassed to me.
