Me too! That is like taking a swat at Chuck Norris. He did kill two stones with one bird you know. I don't know how guys go after those Kodiaks and big ole Alaskan brown bears with a bow and arrow, that is beyond my level of bravery also. 150-200 yards away, ok maybe, 10-15 yards, no thanks.
Chuck Norris would not need a bow to kill a grizzly bear with an arrow

Yup, I have had a 220 swift for almost 40 years. I love the caliber but no way would I use one on a grizz. I would feel more confident with a bow on a grizz.
Antelope any day. I have always considered the antelope a pretty easy animal to kill. When I first started bowhunting antelope 35 years ago I was told that if I got an arrow in one he was done. Found out that wasn't true. Shot a great buck broadside at front point of shoulder with a clean pass through. He walked out in an alfalfa field and stood with his head down. Blood running down both front shoulders. Waited for him to tip over as it got dark. He never did. Tried all next day to get close but he just got stronger as the day went on. Last I saw him he jumped a fence and was herding his does like nothing had happened.

I absolutely hate reading threads like this where people are talking about using "pop guns" (sarcasm intended) for animals that they were not intended for and then there is always at least one lame comment about "well if an arrow can kill, etc."!!! Please use enough gun for a clean, quick, humane kill and treat every animal with the respect it deserves!
