A question came in through e-mail, asking Chris about the bull he took in 2014, and specifically what the bull was doing when he came to full draw; essentially, how was he able to draw his bow with the bull so close and seemingly out in the open. While the answer to that specific question is relatively simple and straight forward, it offers a great segue into the broader discussion of - how and when to draw your bow, or things to think about when you're ready to draw your bow, on an elk.
Topics covered in this Q&A include:
- Drawing back when their vision is blocked, and planning on where those spots may be in their approach
- Drawing back when they are moving or distracted
- Drawing back in their peripheral vision, and the cone of vision elk have
- Bow poundage and how that affects your ability to draw and hold
