Awesome shot!!!

Thanks. Here's another angle. Shows better how the tree frog changed his camo to match the arrow.

Doh, I posted this in the wrong forum but someone has already commented on it over there, this is where it should be.

I spent a long weekend on our lands in Scotland, sourcing our Christmas venison, as often happens in Scotland in the spavce of 3 days I had sunshine, fog, rain, sleet and wind :-)

you cant tell me that these animals are killed with one shot and don't suffer especially the ones killed by bow and arrow and by children too.

Who was telling you that ?

Most animals will be killed with one shot, the purpose of shooting is to proved food so minimal meat damage is important, therefor a well placed single shot is in everyone's best interest. Bow hunting is not allowed in the UK, however a compliant bow hunter will be as effective as a hunter with a rifle, all be it at a closer range.

Wild deer has to be the most free range food available.

if its free why is it illegal to poach them as the police in south cumbria are always appealing for info

They are a free range animal. Meaning... running free in the wild. Nothing is for free. I don't know about the UK, but here in the US we purchase a tag that allows you to harvest an animal. Pretty sure that applies to most. I know my husband purchased a tag to harvest an Ibex in Kyrgyzstan. When you don't purchase a tag and you harvest an animal you are poaching. That's illegal and frowned upon by most true hunters.

My husband and his friend went to Kyrgyzstan this October for an Ibex. My husband has always wanted to go to their native land to get one. You can find them in the US but they are not as hard to get. They found a couple that were too far to safely harvest. At that distance it would be very possible to wound the animal. That is not acceptable in my family. So even though they were not sucessful, it was a wonderful experience that they hope to experience again.
A couple pictures taken by my husband.

I have killed multiple deer and one bear with a bow and arrow. All of them have been with ONE shot and ALL of them died quickly within site of where I stood when I shot. A well placed arrow can be just as lethal as a bullet. And the age of the archer does not determine the skill level either.
