Bear at 10 yards, I knock an arrow and go through my checklist of what to do, not from experience because I’ve only taken 1 deer with my bow, but from videos and research. I made the right call. On the drive back in from the hunt, I talk about the importance of practice and getting through all those early unsuccessful trips because that’s the only way to get better. I’m a long way from where I want to be, but each trip gives me the chance to improve. I can’t imagine the urge I’ll have to upgrade my 3-pin starter bow after I take a bear.
