The rest of the following comments are quite revealing. It would appear the average U Tube commentator is below the level of this form!

as one of the comments said, 'two shots, two hits'... ;) don't often laugh at hunting videos, but I did at that one!

I think that a long bow would have suited that hunter better. Obviously for him shooting an arrow was a waste of time, he could have missed much more easley with a long bow , the horn tips of a long bow would have made impaling the bird much easier and the longer lenght of a longbow would have given the hunter greater reach to hit bird with.

At least a longbower would have tried from a bit further than 5 yards which seems like the maximum range for a hunting compound

Wow. How on earth did he manage to get an arrow like that with a compound? Must be a blunt... his aim was better with the bow :)

<edit>
I'm now waiting for the flood of "that's appalling, he hurt an animal" responses...

Actually, aren't you supposed to hunt small game, with what are effectively blunts? And the force of the impact is what's supposed to kill them?

Yes... but I suspect you're supposed to try and hit them somewhere... more central?
