Sometimes early success is way better... can't imagine the anxiety of having that tag in my pocket for a couple months...I would be worthless... plenty of other ways to spend quality time in the woods..

You did the tag justice... :tup: now enjoy a relaxing fall.

Hey you made it 18 days longer than I would have with that tag and my whiz bang custom rifle  :chuckle:

I have killed a couple elk with archery gear, and I'm afraid i would be in this camp as well. I don't think you settled at all.

Here’s the video


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.

I knew I was going to get one. The season and rules I was allowed to play by were just so liberal there was no way I would eat this tag.

It was really important to me to get one with a bow and I am starting to feel like that may have been my one really good opportunity.  The frontal shot was not what I wanted and boy did I regret that right up until I found him dead.

Such a roller coaster of emotions but I am really glad that it all worked out even though it ended so soon.

Looks like you hit him hard. How much penetration did you get ?

16-18”. Arrow was still in him. Every step it was moving just cutting up the inside of his chest.
