Default RE: Buffalo Hunt


Just a couple of weeks ago I went down to theFlying D in southwest Montana with a buddy of mine from here in AK and he took about a 6 year old bull with his bow. I believe his bow is in the 65-70 lb range, with fix blade broadheads. His first shot hit the bull in the top of the heart and his second shot hit him in the lungsfrom the opposite side. The second shot probably wasn't necessary, but the guide told him to shoot again so he did. The bull was down in approximately 3 minutes. They're not as invincible as people make them out to be. The Native Americans killedcountless numbersof them with little more than a stick with a sharp stone tied to the end. Shot placement is more important than shooting 80lbs of draw and use a good, sharp, fixed-blade broadhead.
