    First traditional bow kill using a Martin Dreamcatcher, Easton Hunter 2117 arrow that I fletched, and 100 grain Judo point. Got him on the corn pile at 10 yards.

    Hey all, This year will be my first 'destination' hunt for elk and mule deer. I've never been one for trophies, it doesn't appeal to me as a concept but I can't help but feel leaving the horns of my first elk would be something I would regret. I would, if I bring them back, get a European...

    New archer. Had a slight quartering away shot. Almost broadside. Magnus head blew through I️ shot kind of high and forward thought I’d hit lungs or vertebra. Rifle shot there would be dead meat. Blood on arrow but none on ground nor in CRP and tracking dogs lost it. I️ looked for blood found...

    Found this on our deer camp property in N. Wi (Onedia County) yesterday morning. It was still warm so they were likely feeding when we came up on it on our ATVs (it was on a logging trail). Brutal scene, blood was everywhere. They pulled out the intestines and stomach which were laying off...

    I took my wife and son to a 3D. I told my wife that it was easy, 10 points for a kill shot, 8 for a wound. This is what she did. I regretted telling her that she only gets 5 points for putting an arrow between the eyes. I guess I should have been more specific about what a kill shot was. Pretty...

    for me with a gun. This is what I was told to buy for bear backup a long time ago on this site....you know who you are and thanks. I had posted this on the Marlin site......thought I would share it with you guys. So while Daniel Y was here we went on a bear hunt. Yes I finally did it. After...

    We are getting quite a few participants at our shoots lately and watching them at the last one made me realize a couple of things. Courses are taking longer to complete. People use binoculars because they can't see the kill zone, especially on darker or worn targets. Often they will stand at...

    I recently decided to try an ILF recurve. They have intriged me for some time and I decided to see what they were all about. I have though been hunting and shooting traditional bows for the past 30 years. Long story short I broke in my Win&Win RCX 17" with Uuhka EX1 curve profile right today...

    I just acquired a new property near my home. It's a winery with 2600 acres behind it. I'm scouting it now with recurve in hand. It 1:00 PM so I don't expect to see much and I can't stay late today. The permit includes: antlerless deer, raccoon, squirrels. Fox, coyote and groundhog are open...

    I was so excited I had to post it here. Just wish I would've taken pictures. Anyway, I've been practicing and getting better with my longbow and today while I was shooting my little girl (who is 7) ran up to me saying "daddy daddy daddy! There's an armadillo over there but it ran off." (We are...

    I got my first deer last fri with my bama bow. It got me thinking about my progression. I started with a pearson then a sage to a hoyt gamemaster and now my bama. Its like i took steps in upgrading bows. Anyone else notice that about youselves

    Last year a buddy sent me an article on what is called suspension trauma, which I never heard of. Turns out your tree stand safety harness can save your life only to kill you in 15 minutes. It's all about restricting blood flow in the legs. I found this that explains why...

    Well, Im just getting around to show it off, I shot him last saturday 10/13. The cool thing about him is that I called him across a field, he came out with another buck and they sparred until he ran the little one off the off then came on in! I grunted at him close to 300yds away, I'm pretty...

    After picking up a recurve, how long did it take you to get your first kill? How long did you practice before even taking it into the woods? And what was your first kill with it?

    On the way home from church today I saw a road kill mink. I had to stop and take a look. I knew that they are around, I just don't see them often. I thought about cutting the tail off, but that animal was smelling rancid. If an animal has gotten to that point, is it too late to do something...
