Who would like L39? I have not been able to keep up with the site and sending it on hunts like it was ment to do. so if someone wants it I will gladly ship it to them and then they can send it out on hunts again.

L39's name was actually brought up in a conversation at the P&Y convention, but I can't remember who it was! Hopefully, they will see this & chime in.

It's a neat tradition that needs to keep going. I was fortunate enough to be able to take L39 to Africa a couple of years ago, and, while there, got to share him with some other fellow Bowsiters as well. It's interesting to read where all of the hunts that L39 has been on that are written down on the sheet that accompanies him. Good to see that he will be back in circulation! (kind of a poor man's "golden horseshoe")

I love this. Leatherwall used to have an "ole Buck" recurve like this.

I have a few hunts planned this year it could go on...

From: Scoot

Not exactly an exotic hunt, but if someone sent it to me now I could bring it along with my son in MN on our turkey chasing adventures. It'd have to be sent fast though- I predict he shoots a bird soon!

I've bookmarked this thread. I'll get in touch with you next year. Has L39 been to Russia? I'm booked for next August.

I'd like to have it for my moose hunt the first week of September... Ed F

From: Scoot

Assuming I draw the tag I could take it with me on an antelope hunt in WY in mid-Aug and get it to Ed in time for his moose hunt. I'll know for sure in two weeks but I sure should draw the tag this year.

From: The END
09-Jun-17
Ed, PM me you address and I'll get the knife in the mail. Good luck on your moose hunt!

I think we could use L39 at the 11th annual Porkapalooza Hog Hunt next week. Not sure it could be there on time though.

From: APauls
09-Jun-17
If it wants to do a moose round trip Ed could send it to Manitoba after his early Sep hunt, and my brother and I could use it mid-end of Sep. We'll prob be leaving around the 22nd or so.

Is there a separate thread dedicated to the adventures of the L39?

L39 is on it's way to Coyote65 for an Az elk hunt. Sorry, W8N4RUT I don't think it would get to you in time.

Nick, Your ability to drink beers into the wee hours of the morning is almost as impressive as your ability to slay animals all over North America. I can now say I drove the Denali highway with a hangover! Thank you and Steph... we'll be back, real soon. Ed F

My brother is coming home from okinawa (sp) japan for an elk hunt 10/13. It will be kind of a special hunt if l39 isnt spoken for.

From: Coyote 65
27-Sep-17
Guess what showed up in the mail today, I 39. It is going on a elk hunt in AZ 23 North. This is one of the areas that the state has designated for alternative management (age). So not only did I get a tag, but I got a envelope with instructions on how to remove the two bottom teeth so the elk can be aged, and a sheet to score the antlers.

This will be my last chance to hunt bull elk, (72) and my wife didn't want me to try and hump one out by myself, so she got me an outfitter. Wards.

Depending on when my hunt ends the knife will go to either Ace, or fubar racin.

It was neat to see all the places the knife had been. If successful will have a picture or two. Will be glad to pass on the "brotherhood of the traveling knife".

Cool idea about adding the pics, Terry! That definitely would be a neat addition to the destination list that travels with L39. Good luck on your hunt!

Knife is on its way to Ace in Conn. It brought me luck, or I had a good guide. 7 x 7 354 bull. Opening morning shot the bull while he was bedded. fell about 35 yards from the shot.

As photos have been requested. Warning rifle shot, if that offends you please turn away.

Nice Job Terry! I think your kidding about your age though. You sure don't look no 72! I think there's a couple more elk years in you.

Well L-39 accompanied me on a Maine Moose hunt last week. I didn't shoot a moose but we got into them every day and saw 3 different Bulls.

L-39 is ready for a late Oct adventure. Who has what planned? I think we can get the knife to someone now, then send it to Fubar for his Nov elk hunt.

From: gottoohunt

If L-39 isn't spoken for in mid January 2018 I will be going over the wall to Mexico with Ward's Outfitters and would love to take L-39 with me in hopes to use it on a Coues deer. gottoohunt

L-39 is on the way to Montana to accompany Hunt Man and friends to Kodiak. I'm not sure how long his hunt is, but he can decide who gets it after that (hopefully Fubar Racin).

Good luck Hunt!
