The 2nd shot on that video was at least 15 Ft to the right.
Those "hunters " have no business shooting at couple of hundred yards neither, leave along 1200yds.

Silly Yankees, all I can say .
I've seen ****ters who could not pool the trigger with a confidence at 130 yds at a 40' bull moose.

But they are paying money, so who cares, this is their idea.

I would not pay attention too much for such videos as a reference to long range hunting personaly.

Glad to see I’m not the only who found that display questionable!

Lots of YouTube videos of animals getting arrows in the guts. But these actors cry for the camera. Let everyone know that they feel terrible and that it’s all part of hunting. That sooner or later........

There are clowns in every discipline.

Missed shots are missed shots. The variables certainly increase dramatically at longer distances. Both with rifle and a bow.We,as hunters,have to take into account these factors and make ethical decisions before pulling the trigger.
