Here is a buck I able to take the other day, 43 yard shot and I double lunged him with the Grim reaper razor tips. I watched him go down in about 100 yards. Enjoy!

Just trying this picture thing out
Arrowed this antelope with my wife's home made decoy

After several years of waiting I decided to pull the archery tag (not getting any younger). I hadn't hunted with my bow for quite a few years so I was quite nervous about going out. My wife had me cut out a form for the decoy and then she painted it.

1st attempt didn't look good, I was able to only get within 400 yards of a small buck. Thought I would try anyway, I set up the decoy and fiddled around getting it to stand properly. After getting it set up I checked to see if the buck was looking and to my surprise I saw a cloud of dust moving quickly my way. You wouldn't believe how difficult it is to knock an arrow and get into position. I took a quick look over top of the decoy and there he was! I sailed an arrow right over his back (so my bowhunting technique wasn't much different after all these years!).

2nd attempt day 2, I ended up travelling down a gravel trail and noticed some antelope feeding along the edge. I thought I could get close to these ones. I didn't have much time the wind was starting to pick up and I knew that the decoy wouldn't stand up very well.
I was also worried about parking my truck with all the dry weather, there was the fire potential in the area. fortunately for me there was a large fire weeks before and I was able to park my truck in completely burned out grass. I snuck up to the herd from the downwind side from about a 1/4 mile out. I got within 100 yards a lot closer than the previous antelope. I sat up the decoy but the wind get trying to blow it over. I finally staked it down in some softer ground. This antelope was much more relaxed and started sauntering towards the decoy. He got within 40 yards, and I got all goofy again. I grabbed my bow with one hand and tried to hold the decoy from blowing over with the other. The wind calmed down for a second and I drew back and sent the arrow on its way. End of story.

Like everyone says on this site, "it's one of the funnest hunts that you can do in Southern Alberta"

Our family has started out well this year. All 3 of us have gotten our whitetail bucks with a bow. My oldest got his with a recurve. Plus one of the 2 muley tags has been filled.

Default Moose down

After an action packed week with no shots I finally connected. I've been hunting what I would call a willow basin surrounded by mature forest. I've been seeing bulls come in but have been all facing me so not good. Being in a treestand that shot is extra bad.
Sunday evening I head out with low expectations as it was very windy. I felt like my calls were falling on deaf ears so with an hour and a half left of hunting time I decide to go for a walk around the basin. I don't usually do this but I figured if they can't hear calls then they can't hear me walking around.
Very slowly I make my way to the back side of the basin, staying downwind. With a half hour left of shooting light I see a dark figure emerge from the tree line right in front of me and was going for the willows. I duck into the grass to nock an arrow and clip the release. He pauses behind a bush so I stand and draw. I waited till he showed himself and at 10 yards I let one fly into the vitals. After the shot I heard him crash so I knew he was down. Found the arrow in the dirt from a clean pass though. Double lung.
Made some phone calls and a buddy came to help with the pack job as it is foot access only. After all said and done I was in bed at 5 am. Might have been one of the bulls I saw before but hard to say. After cutting off the quarters I notice a rage hypodermic broadhead stuck high in the scapula. Looks like I'm not the first guy to take a poke at him. Glad I got him

Very fresh. No pussing or fouling. Must have been very recent.

Great stuff. Wouldn't expect anything else other than a pass through.
