How many animals do you guys think get shot and never recovered? I bet it's an outstanding number!

Ive found around a dozen dead bulls in the bumping unit alone. 5 had arrows near the bones.

I still say call it all in. This bull was found opening morning of muzzy deer in the colockum. Archery elk had ended five days before, muzzy bull permits started that morning. This bull had obviously been dead for a day or two. Head tied to a tree and covered in branches. Maybe it was an archery guy that just hadn”t made it back for the head. Game department seemed pretty interested to take a look.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Kinda odd scene to walk upon in woods...
although that has got to be 1 of the longest running jokes in most camps. "hey Andy, next season I ll tie it to a tree so you wont miss" or "Dad's so old, I would have to tie it to a tree for him to see anything."

If it seems off or odd nothing wrong with letting those who get paid for such to take a look...We've been fed as a society to look the other way for a long time...
