On the last episode of Tred Barta on OLN he went goose hunting with a bow. He shot at some mallards too. The whole show he never shot a single bird :eek: . One of them even landed.
On one of the funniest parts, the guide decides to watch his shot closely to try to see what he is doing wrong. Tred, after missing says, "So what'd I do wrong on that one?" the guide replies, "Well to begin with you shot about 15 ft! behind it" :toofunny: :withstupid:

Frazier, I was watching that episode too. I try to catch as many Tred Barta shows as I can. The guy is an absolute nut. I wouldn't mind having that yellow lab of his though. It was a great dog.

his shows are actually interesting and fun to watch. You know he isn't hunting on some preserve when he doesn't even bag a goose throughout the whole show :toofunny:

I'm only a little late here ;)

Anyways, yes I have seen someone shoot ducks with a bow. I believe the "arrow" is called something like a flu flu? It is like shooting a plunger.

Anyways we have this pond in the flooded timber we hunt in So Cal. we call, "the big pond." It is a semi narrow pond that is pretty long. It has a dike that is just above the water or is really shallow if under the water. Ralph, the guy that shot the ducks with a bow would sit on that dike and call the birds. The birds would work this pond coming in from the left landing in the right or the right landing on the left. Ralph would set up on the middle of the dike (see the 8) and get the birds to work in the way described above. Once the birds are committed and were on their last pass, Ralph would pop up ready to shoot. The birds were coming right at him (were going to go over him to land on the right side [or left]) see him pop up, and begin back peddling. At this point the birds were not moving too much and he had a straight on shot, no leading the birds.

i have clipped one in the wing before. it was enough to take him down and almost kill him but we still had to hit him with a swat load.
