cool thread. With a bow, A doe at 5 yards I was sitting down by a huge oak that blew down and she just popped around the corner walking with her head facing the other way.

with a shotgun my dad and I were callin up a gobbler with my dad behind me twenty yards. I had the gun up on my knee and walked right towards me I let him walk to 3 yards, almost blew his head completly off

South Texas javelina at 3 yards. I was on the side of a sendera and a 49# java.came walking up toward me so I got down on my knees(had knee pads on) behind some cactus and peeked thru at him.When he got close I drew to full draw and then leaned over to shoot around it. The 4 blade MagnusII went thru him and stuck in the sand before it exited him. He ran about 40 yards! Up close is more exciting! Ken

Black bear at 15 feet and a couple of whitetails at about 7 yds. I shot a caribou at 8-10 yds, but when he walked by I could have poked him with my bow tip. All longbows and wood arrows. Even I can hit them when they're that close.

When it comes to shooting well, the arrow is more important than the bow.

My buddy Bamboo set me up in a natural blind one morning, on a large knob...top of a mtn. This 4 pt walked on the knob, made a scrape and I arrowed him at 5 yds...he went about 15 then fell over...

I still-hunted up to a palmetto patch and almost stepped on a sleeping hog. It sensed(heard?)me, opened his eyes and I double lunged him at about 6 feet(even I can make that one!).
He nearly ran me over coming out of there.
I hit him again quartering away for the finisher at about 12 yards.(If they're still standing I'm still shooting.)
