    A lot of deer are 'shot' in the bush at well within bow ranges mate, just because you hunt with a bow doesn't make it any harder or increase the need to utilise the wind.

    I realise that ..the MASSIVE difference a rifle has the ability to drop an animal at a 100m and beyond because of a scope ..because a bow is not scoped out like a rifle and we have a peep and pins (compound bow) we HAVE to be with in 60m unless you a crack shot like "Tim Wells" who's nailing targets out to 110m no peep no pins and this guy is nailing prairie dogs that is unreal shooting ..shooting a bow compared to a rifle goes like this 10m with a bow is the equivalent to a scoped rifle at a 100m ..if you even want to come a shoot a bow and see what it's like I have an archery workshop set up in my garage with the rugby fields across the road so I can practice long range ...keep it coming boys this is beautiful

    Wow I sense a bit of heavy energy in that reply ..but it means bugger all to me just illustrates you butt hurting ..why do you hate because someone chooses to hunt a specific way ..your opinion is your opinion mine is mine ..does it serve well when the common ground is hunting ..I bet the car you drive is different to the one I drive ..both are a means of transporting us somewhere a lot quicker than walking ..once again cheers for the reply Gibo

    Northern key aspect is how used to human smells they are, go hunting in one place where they are on a mates lawn, he can go put washing out and they don't get fussed

    Calling people a 'champ' shows how much you really value the opinions of others. You seem to be up on some sort of pedestal? Have fun up there

    Well I feel it's more respectful than calling them a prick or a wanker ..which I fell on this thread there is no need ..it's a place of sharing ones opinions good bad or ugly ..I don't bow to no one don't intend to ..people ain't coming forth to pay my bills and wipe my butt after a crap and yet when the replies towards me a phark you in a nice way at least I have the decency to accept their opinion but no one is happy about mine ..pedestal nice one a round about way of saying "phark you prick" ..just because you feel you hunt the way you hunt I respect that each to their own ..slowelliot asked for opinions I gave mine and most are pissed with it ..life is too short to hate we have a tendency to focus on the wrong things me included in other areas of my life in which I endeavour to work on ..

    Scent control.

    The real assholes are those that are trying to kill off the pastime of hunting with 1080 ..that to me is a topic I'm sure we can all agree with ..reading in a magazine of NZ hunter the editor writes about 20,000 deer killed in 12 months by way of 1080 and everyone is up in arms about my opinion ..come on guys

    Their is a whole buttload of text taken out of context here.....
    @Kiwininja if you hang around a while and get to know the posters here you will see you have taken posts compleatly out of context and then reacted badly.

    Its a good bunch of guys/gals here all helping each other out

    No it didn't work they smelt you.
    Wind shifts around sometimes you get lucky.
    you can rub yourself down in any type of hyped up crap with a hefty price tag but as soon as you start moving you sweat and you stink like a human.
    Our nose,s can pick up smells well you can only imagine what animals can pick up.

    Just FYI. Sweat itself doesn't smell, its the bacteria.
    Bacteria can be killed.
