They're out there people, I took mine on Sept 17, many years ago. Not even close to book, but my favourite trophy animal by multitudes.
Checked my cams today and the last buck stripped his velvet on the 19th

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.
Congrats very nice bull, we had the same thing this weekend only didn't get the moose, but cow and bull called and nothing so my buddy decided to bugle to see if any elk around and the moose answered back.

Is that a technique for moose hunting pre rut? Was the moose trying to run a would be bull elk out of his territory?
Thanks and what a great bull moose.

Default first archery bear

This is my first archery bear. Was out looking for a buck I've been chasing for the last 3 years. This sow showed up 1/2 hr before last light. Shot her at 13 yards, she ran about 20 yards along the side of the hill and then another 15 straight up the hill. Piled up about 20 seconds after I shot her. Quick ethical kill. Broke a rib on the way in, got both lungs with a pass thru. She had tons of fat on her. We rendered down 9 litres of fat.

Was lucky enough to get my first wolf with a bow. A friend and I were calling moose and the pack came running in on us. This one held up at 60 yards and gave me a shot opportunity.

That'll pucker up the ol arsehole.

I had a big black one run by me on Friday the 13th, while I was sitting in the bush 80 yards from a bachelor group of bull elk. They didnt seem to phased by it at all, but I was solo and was re-evaluating my choice to sit there alone.

Default Whitetail Done

Actually I was out to try and get a moose. I had just done my first sequence of calling and was sitting in my stand enjoying a nice sunny afternoon. I happened to glance hard left down a quad trail I walked in on and saw two bucks slowly poking their way along. The first one came into view at 20 yards and stopped to work a spruce branch overhanging a small scrape. He turned his head once to do that then looked around and turned to lick the branch again. That's when I let fly and it was a gimme shot. After half an hour I was standing over him. I like the early season bucks. They are relaxed and they are so good eating.
Now if the moose would just co-operate.....

Probably, I had the little Tacoma all filled up. It was nice to meet you, always like meeting AO guys.

Kind of a long story. Went out beginning of the season and probably spent 12 to 13 days total hiking around 3 different spots. Only saw 3 moose before this one. 3 Elk total and 2 white tail. But did find an amazing dead head in the bush of 248. Ill leave a pic. Spent lots of days in a tree stand and still hunting. Explored tons more land than ever before. Has probably 8 different bull moose on camera in september. Took 2 days off work to get it done. All day Thursday I didn't see anything so moved to another property I had been to once. Walked the perimeter and saw a cow moose. Finished my loop and went back to the truck to have a break and try not to quit for the morning. On the way back to the truck I saw this trail and decided to still hunt it. Went slow and called and nothing. Came to a fork in the trail and went left. Took a few steps and decided to go the direction of where I saw the cow, which was the right part of the fork. Probably 30 yards down the trail saw this big black moose bedded. Saw antlers and started to freak out. Went to get low to move forward and started to fall backwards. Lucky for me there was a down tree that my butt landed on and made no noise. 35 yards from the moose now and get up and move 5 yards forward for better shooting lane. Find a clear lane about 2 feet wide. As soon as I had my bow ready to go, I didn't have an arrow knocked, he stood up and walked right into my lane. I stopped him with a grunt and let the arrow fly. He only ran about 30 yards and fell right beside that log which was a huge help on a solo break down gutless method. I couldn't believe it. Measured out in the truck at just over 44 inch.

Here's the elk I found this year.
