I've killed a couple with a bow. Hunted just like I do with a shotgun. Waited till they went behind a tree, drew, and when they came out released. I shot the first one while on my knees and the second I was standing up with my back against a large tree. If I get into some birds, I may try it again this year. Oh, by the way the second one had a 11 3/4" beard and 1 3/8 spurs and was killed in a heavily hunted area. I think if you have enough patience, it ain't that hard.
