Hunting Chicks are Hot

crawl over the dirt to get closer because I guessed 30m was my maximum distance for a decent kill shot. As I raised my head I saw movement and suddenly realised there were three goats. I couldn’t get any closer and decided to slowly stand up while the goats were looking away. An arrow was already ‘loaded’ in my bow and the only …
