One hunter had recently switched from shooting with a finger tab to using a release. When his elk walked by, he drew and released-his fingers. Oops. The second guy, shooting from an awkward position, drew his bow and heard a clank as the arrow dropped off the rest. The third guy had no mechanical difficulties. He simply shot over four bulls. Phil, I must note, shot a nice bull at 15 yards with the same bow he's used for 10 years.
