Anybody Kill Anything Yet?
 
Most places have archery open already, has anyone here killed anything yet?

I just got out for the first time today even though archery opened this past Saturday.

I've been busy with work, trying to sell my bike and life in general so I only got to tune my bow up with the broadheads today.

I also sighted in the crossbow I got off my buddy last year.

I had no intention of hunting but then I got my stuff tuned and I was already where I hunt so smelling of cigarettes, wearing blue jeans and a blue shirt, my smelly old work boots and all I set out.

Walked around for a few hours, the wind was not in my favor until 6:20, 15 minutes before dark. I snuck up on this herd in an open field like a lion in the Serengeti. I got to thirty-five yards away and I shot her right in the ticker with my arrow gun.

I still think my recurve and compound bows are more fun, but this is an an efficient meat harvester.

I need to hire a new photographer though!:supergrin:

Shot a 3rd on a friends tag when he failed to connect on his stalk, but aside from the shot, nothing really worth making note of.

Got 2 first time hunters on caribou. Didn't get a moose, but I've still got bear and 5 deer tags to fill, possibly a late season musk ox, or buffalo as well.

Not yet...been too damned hot to pack out. HH

Wow those are impressive!

I got a bear tag last year but didn't have much luck.

This year I know where a good place would be but I just bought a new motorcycle so a taxidermy bill isn't in the cards for me.:crying:

For big game all we have in PA are bear and deer, and some elk out west via lottery. Heck I think they even call turkey big game here.:supergrin:

Alaska is the BOMB!

No archery here, but I'll be going with a rifle in a few weeks for Mulies and Whitetail. Gonna try to bag at least one with my new AR. Grouse after that.

frank4570 10-03-2012 21:56

Not yet. I really need more hazelnut saplings to make proper arrows.

Hummer 10-04-2012 00:45

Gonzoso, nice work on the impromptu doe hunt. :wavey: Kind of proves the point about the work just beginning once the animal is down.

AK_Stick, beautiful caribou in beautiful country, I'm envious! Someday I'm going to hunt Alaska.... :reindeer:


I've got a pronghorn doe tag for a season that begins this weekend in NW Colorado. It'll be a quickie meat hunt but good prep for the more rigorous elk, deer & bear season coming in three weeks.

Rifle season ended several weeks ago out in most of CA! Crazy...

schild 10-04-2012 04:47

I've shot two raccoons and two skunks in the last week, wasn't good eating though.:rofl:

collim1 10-04-2012 05:09

I just planted my fields this weekend. Its still hot, humid, and swarming with biting insects down here.

Cant wait though, got a nice buck on the property I didn't get a shot at last year. Hoping to find him this year.

Holy cow! Rifle doesn't start here until the Monday after thanksgiving.

I kinda dread it a bit. I hunt a large private piece of land, only myself and 2 other guys hunt a thousand acres.

Rifle season comes and I "hunt" it but mostly I spend my time keeping off trespassers and poachers.

GreenDrake 10-04-2012 07:29

Picked up my tags yesterday, got the rifle cleaned up, sighting in this afternoon. Heading up to elk camp in 5 days. Hoping for some meat this year, seems like a late rut so we may be in luck. Either way, going to take a whitetail down as well this year, I hope.

Got my first bow kill/first buck on Saturday...

maximus1079 10-04-2012 10:41

I had a beautiful compound bow a few years back but had to sell it (awesome trophy pics by the way!) and am looking to find a good 30-06 for deer hunting up here in New England. Any suggestions anyone?

faceplant 10-04-2012 10:42

Glock20 10mm 10-04-2012 11:02

Congratulations! How did it feel compared to a rifle kill?

Gonzoso 10-04-2012 11:52

And I'm butchering my deer now. I stabbed myself in my finger already and now there's a thunderstorm. Nothing like butchering a deer on an inclined surface in the pouring rain.:crying:

You dang sure can't work in crappy weather conditions like that. :whistling:

Not yet, but I am taking my Son on his first deer hunt this weekend. 3 day youth rifle hunt, first ever in NY. :cool:

I've read all kinds of reviews of scent free clothing and Field and Stream did a test with a police dog to determine if scent free clothes would slow the dog down in detecting a person and they found the effects of it negligible.

I've also used all kinds of soaps and sprays and detergents and they've not done much for me.

I find just reading the wind, and knowing deer and their mannerisms is the best way.

I still hunt almost always and have been getting better every year. I just keep sneaking and get busted a lot, but getting busted by deer just teaches you how not too. :supergrin:

I really should get a go pro or something, this would have been a great video.
