I love bow hunting. I don’t care if it’s hunting whitetails, black bear, or small game, I just love being in the woods with my bow! Here in Wisconsin it takes nine to ten years to get drawn for a bear harvest tag though, and my work schedule prevents me from spending as much time afield as I would like to chasing whitetails.
Our snowshoe hare population is at an all time low here in Wisconsin, so as much as I love bow hunting I had to find some other critters to chase to keep active with my bow. I started to think about my options. Target shooting is fun if the family or a few friends are out in the back yard shooting with me, but often as not I am shooting by myself. That can get boring in a hurry. As much as I love bow hunting, I knew there had to be something out there that would exercise not only the hunting body, but the hunting mind as well.
Bowhunting birds is born
A few years ago I had the opportunity to do some shooting with Brooks Johnson who happens to love bow hunting even more than I do. Brooks had some arrow points with him that I had never seen before. Snaro Bird Points? What the heck are those? As we got to spend a few afternoons shooting aerial targets I started to see that these Snaros could keep my bow hunting skills tuned up all year long. I mean, I love bow hunting, and these Snaros just offered me a few extra seasons to get out in the woods with my bow.
After practicing on aerial targets for a few days in a row (did I mention I love bow hunting?) Brooks and I started talking about the possibilities for extending our archery seasons. We laughed about the upland bird season and migratory bird seasons. But I said hell, why not try it, we both love bow hunting? Maybe bowhunting birds was a good starting point.
Bowhunting birds happened
With our recurves and a great bird dog in the truck we went to Birdseye View in Wisconsin owned by a fellow who also happens to love bow hunting. We bought a few birds and a few chukar partridge and headed out to the field. Both birds and chukar hold well on a dog’s point, and within a half an hour Brooks and I had each knocked a bird out of the air with a Snaro! What a feeling! Bowhunting birds was awesome! I love bow hunting even more now!
