I know he's not the biggest, but having my 10 year old there for the experience was worth it.

So I hustled to the open meadow paralleling the screams and bugles from the bull. Got into position and made a few short cows calls, he came in on a string tried to circle down wind through the open. I was on my knees arrow nocked behind a bush and peeked up, Range 45 yards...he saw me draw but hasnít figured it out yet, pin on the spot, release the arrow. Arrow buried to the fletch, he turns and runs but a few quick cow calls stops him quartering away. Range 87 yrds...nock, draw, release...hang time and thwack another solid hit. He turns and stops now facing away. Bolts 10 yards into the bush and crashes...the biggest bull I have ever shot is now down. I took a full 30 minutes even though I knew he was down and only 100 yards away. Just time to reflect and appreciate the life we as hunters choose to live.

No I switched to Tooth of the Arrow fixed heads, I am able to tune them extremely well and they group at extreme distances (100 yards). Part of the reason I was confident in taking and made an 87 yard follow up shot. I would NEVER take a first shot at that distance but if I already have an arrow in something and I have a chance to get another Iíll take it every time.

An excellent hunting trip. Didn't have much choice but to shoot the bear as it was stalking us. We Yelled and gave him every chance to leave us alone but 11 yards and not showing any sign of him backing down he made the decision easier.
My buddy called the elk into 38 yards at about 630pm. We gave him an hour and then tracked him well into the night. We bumped him at about 10pm so had no Choice but to give him the night and come back in the morning. We got on a very weak blood trail the next morning but persistence paid off he was dead about 200 yards from where we bumped him the night before. The shot ended up being slightly more quartered towards me then I realized. it still hit him fairly good. Right behind the shoulder blade and came out the guts slightly. Amazing how far he went with the amount of blood he had in his lungs.IMG_20190916_082516_093.jpg20190912_215200.jpg

I have taken 1/2 dozen big game animals with them, No complaints so far. Just make sure you do your part and they do theirs.

Default Grunting Brute

I was fortunate to take this guy last week on the 13th. I was in a spot early and gave several cow and moose calls. With no replies I thought I would give an elk bugle to possibly get some video footage. (The Monday before I was lucky enough to harvest a dry cow Elk) Before the first elk bugle was done I heard this guy fire up. A second elk bugle had him come in on a string. 30 yard shot and a 70 yard retrieval. Then a whole lot of good work.
Had intentions of posting earlier but got pretty busy. Next is Mule Deer I hope.
Sorry about the blood in the pics but weather was warming pretty quick and focus was a couple quick pics then load and outa there. Had an 11 km ride out.

Yeah it is certainly possible. This one was taken on the 6th, donít think he would have made it another day without stripping the velvet though.
