In contrast to a rifle hunter who may shoot effectively from ranges in excess of 300m, archers usually restrict shots to between 3 - 40m. The distance depends upon individual ability, the target animal, the bow strength, terrain, arrow and weather.
The bow hunter may walk along the ground slowly, looking for game and stalking it carefully in the final approach. This type of slow, methodical stalking, is called "still hunting." Hunters often wear camouflage clothing and walk upwind so that they are more difficult to detect via their smell.
In "stand hunting", the hunter waits for game to come to him, usually near food, water, or known trails. Brush and other natural materials may be placed for cover, or a "ground blind" that looks like a tent may be used.
