Sharing I can do

I already entered this in our team contest thread, but not with many details. So here goes:



The area I hunt is a hillside that's quite open but has copses of brush and scattered pines. I had a nice blind all set up close to a couple trails I figured the deer would pass along but sat several mornings watching most of them work up a ridge 200 yards away.

Finally it twigged - go hide behind a bush where the deer were. In the dark one morning, I set up by a big pine tree and started seeing deer with first light. The first one to come by my hiding spot was this 4-pt (i.e., 4x4). He stood broadside for me at 17 yards and I zipped a Gold Tip Expedition Hunter with a 100 gr G5 Montec through his heart. My favorite hunting bow is this 2003 Hoyt Razortec. The buck ran about 40 yards before keeling over.

New World Record (SCI) typical Merriam's Turkey shot in South Dakota. PSE X-Force Super Short



Cape Buffalo Killed with a single custom 1045 grain arrow from an eighty pound PSE X-Force



Red Hartebeest bull-East Cape of South Africa...74# X-Force Super Short



White Springbok-East Cape of South Africa...74# X-Force Super Short



Genet Cat-East Cape of South Africa...74# X-Force Super Short-killed at 34 yards and shot during daylight.




Cape Bushbuck-East Cape of South Africa...74# X-Force Super Short



Zebra-East Cape of South Africa...74# X-Force Super Short



Black wildebeest-East Cape of South Africa...74# X-Force Super Short



One of a couple Pronghorn from Wyoming...74# X-Force Super Short



Addax-Texas...74# X-Force Super Short



Scimitar horned Oryx-Texas...74# X-Force Super Short



On occasion, I still enjoy hunting with my rifles. This is an area 146 Colorado Pronghorn. More than likely he will be my last Colorado antelope. Hunting them in Wyoming (every year) with a bow is still too much fun!

A proud daddy moment: 11/10/12 my 12 y/o daughter fills her very first Colorado youth elk tag.


I traveled to Alabama over the Thanksgiving holiday-on my quest to kill a deer in all fifty states. As time was running out, I began to unravel the tactics of hunting these elusive "sweet home " deer. They liked hanging in heavy cover! In the end, I used my Ruger to shoot both a buck and a doe.




A hard earned buck from South Dakota



A litte late season Muzzleloading in Iowa

Heck yes, it sure is a tropy to him! He looks pumped! Reminds me of when I first started hunting way back when. Glad to see the young fellas getting into the sport.
