    Ol boy had a helluva story of the whole encounter over on archerytalk.
    But, he's also a sight designer/owner, and at that point, attributed said sight to saving his life.
    The scene was was supposedly went over by wildlife agents, and thought to be legit

    That’s awesome. I’d love to go hunt one with dogs one day and shoot it out with a bow.

    Good way to sell a sight.

    When I first saw the pic I thought it was from a crossbow. I agree, with a bow that is suspect.

    It’s hard for me to believe he did all that he said he did in the timeframe given. A charging cat would have been on him before he could have picked up that bow. Now I can imagine the cat charging him, then stopped and he gathered his composure, got his bow, took aim and shot the confused cat at 16 yards while the cat was trying to piece together why the elk he was after looked so weird.

    I believe the fact that he called fish and game helps his story out, it would have been just as easy for him to leave it laying and no one would know

    If he did it for publicity he would have had to have called fish and game. Or else he couldnt have posted a picture to brag about his sight later

    My guess is he poached it to plug the sight that has a quick link in the article. Then called to get it out there.

    I can't even make the jump that he did anything with bad intentions. I just can't imagine it happened the way he said it did. Maybe it did and this guy is the most unflappable, instinctive shooter the world has ever seen.

    And fastest runner...and he had to have used his fingers or a preattached thumb release right? I cant see doing all that stuff and hooking onto a D loop and turning and shooting.

    'Like ... a horror movie': Camper saves family of 4 from savage wolf attack
    The Washington Post

    Published 5:48 am PDT, Wednesday, August 14, 2019
    A family was saved from a wolf attack at Banff National Park, Canada Rockies, Canada, pictured here.



    It was about half past midnight when Russ Fee woke up to the sound of frantic shouts coming from a campsite next to his in Canada's Banff National Park. From within his tent, he listened, quickly discerning that the voices belonged to a man and a woman. They were screaming for help.
