Because of his poaching adventures in Montana.

I don't know anything about this guy or his history but that's damn amazing to put an arrow on target at 300 yards. Holy catfish!

No doubt it is a great shot. Put enough up in the air and one will hit.

As others have mentioned, his recent guilty plea and conviction of illegal doings, some of which were filmed and sold via dvd, have left a more than bad taste for anything he is associated with.

I had no idea - or background on his legal past and not sure I would've posted this had I known. Does anyone have an article to post for reference?

He is scum but it's still an impressive shot. Looks like he won't be using that bow on any animals in the foreseeable future though; legally.

Damn. Glad he's busted and it's telling he pled guilty.

This guy has obviously made some dumb mistakes but that is none the less really impressive!  hopefully he'll put all that skill to use in the right way in the future.

Washington resident Matthew Alwine appeared in Park County Justice Court - Montana - and pled to/was sentenced for multiple counts of trespassing, illegal hunting and killing of trophy bull elk, mule deer, and trophy whitetail deer. Alwine filmed a show called Trophy State of Mind while poaching some of these animals. Fines totaled $11,180 with a loss of all hunting privileges for 48 months in Montana and potentially Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact participating states. Washington Fish and Wildlife Officers and Detectives assisted in the investigation and search warrants served in Washington revealed much of the evidence used in the case.

Other suspects charged during the investigation in March of 2015, included Dalton Harum (WA) (fail to obtain landowner permission 5 x 5 bull elk – 2014), forfeited fine $170 and elk antlers and Zach Samek (WA) criminal trespass on private property (videoed the Harum elk hunt) forfeited fine $185.

I had no idea! I was impressed with the shot itself certainly but after reading the post/link below, I'm less inclined to give the dude my respect.

Amazing shooting.

I can expect to hit a balloon at 100 yards but 300?  Wow
