This year was the 27th annual, my how time flies by!!
We had 63 hunters and 15 birds were shot in the air.
I was using my 16ga longbow, yuk yuk.
Attached are a couple of pictures that show proof positive, that you can hit a flying pheasant with a stick bow and a flu-flu arrow.

Seeing is believing . Just put the stick on the spit and turn slowly.

My lord....as if I don't feel bad enough already when I empty a gun and watch a rooster depart without a scratch...

That is really amazing to see, fantastic photos.

In the spirit of "one-upsmanship" now I'll have to be hunting with one of these exclusively this fall...

I have a stick bow but have never tried that. I should check my regs to see if it's legal to do that on a release site when other hunters are around with guns. Otherwise, it sounds like a private ranch kind of deal?

I am a very avid bow hunter, and have been for 40 years. No way I could do that.

I just noticed that if you click on the picture, you can enlarge it and see more detail.

I would love to try that with one of my longbows! I enjoy shooting targets in the air with them but when I drive for hours and then walk a bunch more in a hunt I trust my 16 a bunch more.

What draw weight on the bow? In event of a miss, how far downrange can a flu-flu be expected to fly?
