This and the harvest thread in the hunting section are my two favorite of the year! Unfortunately us southerners have to wait a week yet, but hope to see some success from your northerners this week:sHa_shakeshout:

Good luck all and straight shooting.

Got my bull moose last night, shot him about 15 minutes before last light at 35 yards. Ended up getting him back to the house around 2:30 this morning, not sure how to upload pictures but the ones we did take werenít that great since it was pouring. Hopefully everyone else has a great fall and shoot straight fellow hunters.

My father in law dumped a elk last night just waiting for pics and then ill share

Simplefarmer 09-03-2021 12:19 PM

One young fella took a mature mule deer here yesterday, winds were perfect and arrow flew straight. Rough number is 190 and change. If he give permission I can share later.

May your darts fly straight everyone.

Had a crazy couple days in the rain. Saw 5 moose, had 1 bull in range but he kept stepping just after I had my anchor and was getting my pin on him so missed out. But yesterday morning in the stand saw this guy about 100 yards up wind from me. Decided to stalk in on him to see if I could get the shot. Turns out he stuck around. The wind was loud and perfect. 40 yard shot and about 1 mile drag to the truck. Love the bow zone.

Shot a buck opening evening. Not a Cranker but once I figure out posting from an iPhone Iíll share pics. September cold fronts can be deadly.

Walked into my stand in the rain and wind. Rain cleared by 8pm. Buck came out at 9. Never seen him on cam before. Came down the trail in the direction I was expecting in the evening. Wind was perfect. He came to 15yards and put a fmj tipped with razor tip grim reapers though him. Didnít go 20. Love when a plan comes together. Had a buddy, timberwoodsman, help with the pack out. Not accessible by atv or truck

Had 2 bucks walk directly under me first sit, both 3x3, one was a large body and the other was a skinny wider spread with still the velvet on. I left them because I know I have a nice 5x5 that visits, hope I dont regret that later on.:angry3:

That's kinda freaky that sounds exactly like the pasture I'm in but I'd be willing to bet it's not.

Got my public land 5 point bull last week. Came in to by buddies bugle and cow calls. Frontal shot into the thoracic opening. Only made it 50 yards. Cut up and in the freezer

Glion 09-12-2021 12:58 AM

Got my buck tonight, decent one. Had 4 of them within 30 yards of me tussling a little bit. 2 small 3x3 that come every night and then the one I got and there was another one that in a year or 2 should be approx 180. This one I had been following on cams for a year so was nice to tag him. Hit him at about 25 yards and he ran about 100 jumped a fence and that was it.

Got a whitetail doe this morning at 7:00. Shot her at 52 yards and she fell over. This was my first bow kill ever, since last two years Iíve only shot deer with my rifle. I got my licence when I was 12 but never got a good shot opportunity so 2 years later I finally found a deer I could shoot. Iíve been increasing my poundage and shooting at 54 pounds now allows me to shoot out to 60 yards consistently. This definitely gives me some confidence for when my target buck walks by. My dad and I were driving a road allowance to get to a mule deer spot in the bow zone by Calgary and she popped up. With the fog and the fact it was early this morning she just froze because she was confused. I snuck up a bit and got a shot off. Itís awesome because I put my bow zone antlerless tags on and can still hunt whitetail buck in November. Steaks are cut and wrapped and in the freezer. Just pumped!!!

Congrats on your first!

I have been bow hunting about 30 years. 90% of my shots have been under 30 yards. Anytime I have run into an issue the shot has been 50 plus.

I shoot a lot, I practice a lot, I have won several Provincial and National titles.

Reminder that archery is a game of how close not how far. Another reminder that a 50 yard shot is a long ways for things to happen, so keep that in mind because ultimately you have to live with the choices both good and bad that you make in the field.

Very good advice. I guess I shouldnít have made it sound like I am happy I shot that far. If I practice at 60 a 30 yard shot will seem easy. Plus getting a 30 yard shot shows more skill anyway especially on a whitetail. Next time Iíll pass up a shot like that and keep going. Good advice about things going wrong that far. Wind, deer turns or ducks. Thanks Lefty

No worries, and again congrats! For me to shoot 50 everything has to be absolutely perfect. I like to practice long distance too, but when it comes down to it the close game is where the thrill is for me. Good luck the rest of your season.

Good job and beauty bull! Not too many hunters can notch their belt with an archery Elk.. Congrats sir

reddeerhunter 09-15-2021 12:22 AM

With mule season closing for archery in north and a friend with a mule tag, meat was the order. 21 yd shot. Sausage buck.

Then on to a not so smart bull elk. Cpl cow chirps and he came licking lips. Backstraps flying. Good time to be alive. Shoot straight.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...05fe98589e.jpg
https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...c55209a7c6.jpg
Huge body. Little rack. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...6ac918feda.jpg
Exit wound, down in 40yds. 60lbs venison deboned.

Good luck everyone. Enjoy the next week or two of yellowing leaves.

2021 Archery Harvest thread, share your stories and pics here!!
 
Under an hour into opener and had 5 bulls come in silent to calls. Not the biggest in the group, but I took the 1st that gave me a shot.

Hard 1/4 away. Came out 1/2ĒĒ in front of the shoulder blade and ran 60 yards and piled up.

12 hours from shot to last load to the truck.
