Gator crossbow tips

Going to try a crossbow this year.
What is the process?
Do you run at them and hit them on the move?
Creep up on them? Can you creep with an outboard or do you need a trolling motor?
Shot placement?

    People do it in many ways including run and gun with airboat/motor, sneak with trolling motor and even call them into range for the shot.  You want to hit them in a fleshy area if possible like the side of the neck but sometimes you take what you can get.  You can bounce off the back if the angle is low 


    The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. Hopefully the next man is not dropping his stones on the mountain you are trying to move.

    You have to try all of the above and also if your boat is small enough you can try poling it the last 75 yards-just like most hunting nothing works most of the time. A typical night is spent trying all those methods over and over until you finally get lucky
