I'll go she's not a 400in elk but it's my first deer with my bow and I am happy. Now to go out and get that elk. I am still trying to figure out how to embed photos from my phone.

I sure hope so, been refreshing 4 times a day hoping to see some pics and hardly a picture yet...

Going to be out most of the first 4 days of the south season and hope I get to post one myself!

Shoot Straight

Ok I think I figured out this photo thing posting my doe from earlier. Didn't like the fact that random people could see my pics on Imgur had some strange comments there.

Apologies for the double really wanted to figure out the photo thing.

I couldn't be prouder... his first shot wasn't the greatest, but the follow up shot was perfect. Big buck down!

Doing better than dad, did you not shoot 5 moose last year before dropping one?

Good job kid. Nice buck.

Ummmm... no... not really sure where you got that from. I DID hit a 6x6 ELK in the shoulder, and didn't recover him... but dropped the next bull I shot a couple weeks later

Young fellas buck
 
Congratulations to the young fella and his amazing Mulie buck. That must have been a great father son experience. Really nice buck!

I might have hit the shoulder blade with one of the shots, but definitely not with the other two. I think i got unlucky and hit ribs with the other two shots - either way, the arrows stopped - and one shot it actually "bounced" back.
I'm an outfitter, and a couple years ago had a guy up who killed a mule deer with a perfectly placed shot with a toxic broad head. He said they were great for whitetails back home, so maybe the problem was with the thicker bones on the bulls i hit - i don't know. All i can say is that i would rather stick with simple, one-piece broadheads. I can't say enough about montecs.

Arrowed a grouse this morning but didn't really think to take a picture. It was a ruffie, I'm sure you can all picture it in your minds.

colour86 09-02-2017 03:32 PM

nice pictures guys! went out opening morning and got a shot on a real nice 4x4 in velvet. 20yds broadside, thought easy peasy, released and my arrow hit a strand of barbwire 5 yds in front of my ground blind. forgot to check arrow trajectory....arrow summersaulted and landed a foot in front of the deer. and the season begins.....lol

Wasn't a velvet 4x4 but I did the same thing a couple of years ago. Something the size of a pencil hitting something the size of that wire from that far away? Couldn't do it if we tried to again.......

Congrats to your son Sage, great buck!

I've been on the moose. Blew it on a 50" bull opening morning, did an 800yd stalk on him then lost him in the tall grass and walked past him then turned around and saw him standing right behind me so I tried to range him but my batteries were dead in my rangefinder :angry3:

Played around with a little bull tonight, could have easily had meat on the pole but its early in the season and he was just a young bull. Normally he would be exactly what I'm looking for but I figured I let him live. Shooting a bull in the evening isn't really my idea of a fun evening either. Saw 4 different bulls in 2 days, I don't think I'll have a hard time filling the tag this year.

Good luck to everyone this season, I hope we get some more picks posted before the weekend is through!

Freerider 09-03-2017 07:14 PM

Words can describe how psyched I am right now after 11 days of 430 am starts 125km on my boots. I was able to put together a stalk on this bull this afternoon. My first bull elk and my first with the bow. Put out the bull down call got some help and had him in a walk in cooler 3hours later.

The smile on your face says it all, the kid helping you pack out the meat. Now that's what life is all about dude!

kujoseto 09-03-2017 09:14 PM

My nephew he was pretty excited to come help was right in there helping all he could. I was pretty psyched that my brother got that pic of him helping with the Backstrap it's honestly my favourite of all of them.

Man I love seeing lots of Fawns.. Especially in areas where I know a few big bucks roam. Just keep dreaming of the next big generation of bucks and how they will look.

goldscud 09-04-2017 09:25 AM

Congrats to all so far. Thanks for the pictures
