Some great animals posted here. I look forward to being able to add one to this, my favorite thread each year, one day. It's tough not having much time to commit to getting it done. Thanks to all for posting the pics

Wow! These are some amazing Bulls guys! I still have yet to draw my bow on a bull, although I've been chasing them for a while!

Thanks guys!

And he wasn't the oldest bull! So he's still tender and juicy!

Came in on a string to cow and bull calls, had to walk right at him grunting to close the distance and get a shooting lane.

Default October Whitetail

Was fortunate enough to put this fellow on the ground yesterday morning. Prior to his arrival I had rattled in two spikers and a button buck. He came in from upwind on a trail through the spruce and I had about 2 seconds to make my mind up and draw as he went past. He gave me a 12 yard broadside chip shot and that's all she wrote. He piled up within sight at about 50 yards. I used my barrel sled to slide him out on the snow. Its kind of nice to be done before the cold and snows of November are upon us.

Nice buck. Looks like you put a good hit on him too. Good stuff!

I finally got me first big game animal and with my bow to boot.
I picked up my hunting partner for an afternoon hunt on October 21st. We got to our spot that we have been scouting all summer with trail cams, never seeing anything but mule deer does. We have been saving this spot as a fall back to fill a late season tag. The afternoon started off pretty quietly. Nothing seemed to be moving. We finally spotted a doe up on a ridge. So off we went chasing after a doe. By the time we crossed the creek and made it up the hill she was no where to be seen. We kept searching the ridge only to spook off a pair of does higher up the hillside. We decided to sit and scope the hills and ridges. We kept hearing a constant buzzing that got louder and then faded away. Well it turns out there was a drone circling overhead. We watched this thing circle around over and over for a half hour before deciding to head back accross the creek away from this drone. We came to a "Y" in the trail and decided to split up as both paths lead to different sides of a pond that we have seen lots of activity at. I got maybe 50 yards away and got busted by a mullie doe. I stopped dead in my tracks and stood as still as I could. While I'm having a staring duel with this doe, I could hear some rustling behind in the direction my hunting partner was. This rustling starts getting louder and louder. I'm starting to wonder what is going on. I didn't want to turn around as I'm still staring at this doe. Finally the noise is even louder. I can't not look anymore. I turn around just in time to see a moose running towards me. It must have caught wind of me as it stopped right before getting to the trail that I am standing on. It turns it's head only to have a tree in its line of vision. I drew back my bow and waited. It took a few steps forward into the trail and is facing me head on 20 yards away. I held on and waited for what felt like forever. Finally he turns to give me a perfect broad side shot and I release. Perfect shot he runs 20 yards into the bush and crashes. I stood there for 10 minutes listening, not moving a muscle. I finally sneak away to find my partner. I find him searching feverishly for something. So I asked him "did you see the moose?". "Yes" he says "I saw a bull moose! He made me out at the same time as I made him out. He started running. So I tried running after him. Did you see it?". "I shot it. It's dead over there in the bush". After celebratory high fives we waited an extra 20 minutes just in case (longest 20 minutes of my life!) and went to find the bull. We found him 25 yards away from the trail. After saying thanks to the big man above we took a few pictures



It was one of the most exciting and memorable moments of my life. I will never forget it!

Got excited and only managed to get this photo. First year with a bow and this is the site of the impact. Very impressed with how well the Grim Reaper worked. There is now white tail in the freezer

Better late then never I guess hey?!? Second bull in 3 yrs., my Irish ancestory must be helping!! Was actually hunting elk, but this guy made the mistake of looking me in the eye...lol

Great bunch of critters in this thread guys (and ladies!!), HUGE congrats to you all. Going on 5 yrs without getting an elk, hope it works out one of these years.

First whitetail buck with the bow. He was my number 2 buck I've been hunting since August. Clipped his big brother a couple weeks ago, but just educated him. Caught this guy feeding Through the field slipped into position trying to figure out where he would head into the bush. Worked out perfect. Got in front of him. Good wind, long shot at 65 yards. but made it count, rage tore him up and passed right through.and he Hit the bush. Backed out came back later and found him about 50 yards and piled up. I shoot a Mathews z7 with rage 2 blades.

Brought my son into a treestand for the first time. After the initial shock of being 18ft high, he settled into glassing for WT deer. We spotted a couple does during fading light and I made a perfect double lung 30 yard shot with my Bear BR33. We climbed down and I explained the next steps of retrieval. He really enjoyed tracking the deer so I let him lead until he found her about 80 yards away. He could not believe she went that far. He loved watching the lumenok fly and said, "it was like a missile"
