    You still need to "practice" of course, even with a crossbow, but the accuracy is insane. They make crossbows today that are as accurate as firearms at 20 to 40 yards. I have an Excalibur Matrix that from bench rest will repeatedly put an arrow into a golf ball sized area, which still amazes me. Even at longer ranges I likely wouldn't shoot at, I'd say the area is baseball sized, which is still the kill-zone.
    Well with a compound bow I shoot in a 3-4 inch grouping at 25 yards. I will never shoot anything that is beyond 30ish yards. Getting that close is not easy. But some if my friends a good elk callers and they have taken elk by bow before.

    Good strategy ....watch out for those small saplings and twigs . It's easy to get tunnel vision when the big one shows up.
    I though for sure I had a great shot on the biggest Buck I've seen, he ran off without a scratch LOL .I looked back to see my arrow in a 1" wide sapling
