Clean, ethical shots are something that all hunters aspire to. Sometimes—like when hunting big, dangerous game—they’re vital. It is a sign of respect for the quarry, and a badge of honor of the hunter. Of course, these shots are always the culmination of skill and practice.

That is why it is particularly impressive that this young bowhunter drops a bull elk in one swift blow. Skip to 0:58 to see the actual shot.

According to Fullchoke Outdoors, the video was taken by their Pro Staff member Clayton Coyle on a hunt four years ago. He was 13 at the time. No location was given.
