With a Bow!!
« on: February 28, 2021, 08:26:29 AM »
This should be another fun thread.

 Let's see your harvest with a bow. :tup: :tup: :tup:

I had to knock some dust off some old photos, as my start was in bow hunting. I hunted with a bow from 12-27 with the exception of one deer and a black bear everything else in that time frame was with a bow.


This was was my first bull. I was serving an apprenticeship in southern Idaho at the time. OTC bull

My first “medium” game harvest with my bow. Spot and stalking through a Texas river bottom/swamp while I was stationed in Ft. Hood. That was some of my favorite hunting , I made the hour drive almost every weekend as it was the only non baited public land.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

Mind if i ask what brand of bow that is. Looks a bit like the bow i bought used that doesnt have any markings on it to tell me who made it. Mines 56 in , 55lb at 28in.

This was a few years ago, very first Bow kill, 12 yards from my tree stand.  On my way out to the stand I missed him at 40 yards, didn’t have time to range and he was about 50.  Back then the bows were a little slower!!  An hour later, he walked under my stand, had to wait till he got farther out to shoot.
