I would really try to Kill the animal and in my opinion taking a shot at the vitals it the best way. Now that being said, its a yote. I want to get rid of them on my property. A yote, if I am using a big enough rifle say a .300 or .308, yeah I'm shooting and as long as I hit it, I am good with that. A bow is different. If I can't hit the vitals no matter what the animal, I am not shooting.
A hunter is not a man who kills animals but, a man who holds immense knowledge, loves, respects and takes great steps in the preservation of the creatures he harvests. He is loyal, grateful, responsible and ethical in every aspect of his chase. He is who I strive every day to be.
