that reminds me of a story . My hunting buddy and I were hunting jackrabbits in the Panhandle of Texas. We had a jack rabbit at about 60yds setting the shade of a telephone pole. We both shot at about the same time. I was sure I saw my arrow go just over his back. The jack rabbit took one big jump and dropped dead. Hunting partner says ya got him what a shot. No i dont think i did you muct have. Nope partner said he watched his arrow miss him a foot?????
we walked the 60 yds to the dead rabbit. rancher had strung the bottom bobwire about 4" off the ground. we scared the jack rabbit and his first leap he broke his neck hitting the waire.
then there was the time I was at a pharmacy meeting in guymon, OK. I had gone to college with one fo the follows attended, He had told his fellow phamacist from the area some story that could have been almost true of my arhcery powress when i was in college. Espically of me shooting 2"x2" piece of pine thrown in the air.
now that is a lot of pressure to live upto the expections of non-archers that have been told some what true stories. on the way out to a pasture to shoot the bow, a jack rabbit got up right under my feet. he was at full tilt. by the time I got my act together to shoot he must have been 35 yds out still at a good jack rabbit lope. I swang thru the rabbit about ten yds ahead, point on level and released. the arrow was golden bullet. almost in slow motion the arrow drops into the chest of the lopeing jack rabbit. the rabbit take a huge leap striaght up into the air and hit the in a death throw.
I carefull put my bow and arrows up never to shoot another shot in fornt of those guys again .
ps one time i vistied with one of the fellows from that group yrs later. he had two boys now. his kids came running out to the car and said oh you are the great archery, did you bring your bow........oh no I am sorry I had to fly pand could not bring my bow. I made dang sure not to open the trunk of the rent car. no way I was going to take that bow out
