Well spoken BB.. I think that these words should be printed and posted on the wall of any budding hunters out there. Think about these words before you start talking numbers and weights or spouting theories about velocity or types of bands you think are better, as they are true words of wisdom from an experienced man..You can have the most powerful bands, or tubes in the world...but if you cannot control, and hit your quarry`s vitals..... stick with shooting cans and jellotin bricks.
Hunting game with any weapon , must be taken seriously. It is not a ``sport`` like football or baseball.
You owe it to the animal , to make clean shots, and know your ability...or don`t take the shot.
The real skill in hunting...is to get as close as you can, without detection from your quarry. One on one....
Know your limits, before you decide to hunt game.
