This kid has got bowhunting ground squirrels down to a science.
Watch the video to see what this young archer can do when a ground squirrel presents an opportunity.
Hunting small game, like the ground squirrels this kid is after, is a great way to hone your shooting skills for big game hunting. Hitting a small target with an arrow is tough and the skittish nature of ground squirrels and other small game will improve your stalking skills.
The other benefit to hunting small game is that it is a low pressure hunt. Spook a ground squirrel as you approach for the shot? So what? Go find another one, something you can’t always do when hunting big game.
Get your bow out and get ready. Big game seasons are almost here.
