Going through some old Bowhunter magazines I caught this photo of two of Bowsites regulars side by side, Jaq and Boubound. There used to be a section where you could send in your photos and they were published in the magazine.

Didn't know Andrew or I would have included him. Grant was on the previous page too with an antelope.

Feb/March 1996 issue.

Thanks Ironbow, I'm pretty sure I have that one around. I have a TBM or Bowhunter (maybe both?) with Pat's interview(s) about how Bowsite started. Those are the only two mags I've always saved each copy of since getting into bowhunting 25-odd years ago.

Your sure those weren't photo shopped. Great pictures back in the day. I actually remember those ads!

Note: Lou isn't wearing any camo than his hat.

Wood, I have all but 4 or 5 copies of Bowhunter, missing some of the very first ones. Would love to find them and complete my set. I started in 1973.

Wow. You guys are old! LOL! I think you had to actually pay to have pictures developed =D.... pretty cool.

That's too funny! I didn't send the photo in - the Muzzy folks did that since I was a Pro Staffer in those Days of Yore. That was my Muzzy Pro Staff hat.

If memory serves, that buck was shot in '89. I came back to CO from running a project in the East and only had the last day of the season to hunt. Had a giant nontypical walk by at 10 yards at first light but no shot. I was kicking myself when this guy came along a few minutes later on the same trail.

Honored to be posing next to Grant. I don't think Fat Albert had created the internet yet, but I'm sure he had Bowsite on his mind when he finally unleashed it..

Jeez Lou, if there'd have been another book in the Bible after Revelations, you'd probably be in that too...

Todd, thanks for the post and always glad to see old timers when they were younger. This reminds me of when BB (elk) and I (Big Horn Sheep), had a story in the same magazine, ie, Western Bow Hunter, many years ago around 1998-99.. Fun stuff for sure. It was not until a couple of years ago, as I read through some old magazine articles like you did, that I was aware of this and if it had not been for Bowsite, I would not have known Bill Allard, aka, BB. my best, Paul

"Bou and Lou together", has a much better ring to it. :)

Neat. My parents gave me a stack of Bowhunter magazines that I had articles in dating back to 1990. It’s neat to page through them from that long ago. Amazing how much the industry has changed. I laughed at an ad for the trail monitor that used string tied across a deer trail. I bought one and it was ridiculous!

They had a section like that in the old NWTF mag where you could send in a pic of yourself and your kill. I never really understood guys sending a pic of themselves and their kill to a magazine to post them but I guess its no different than posting them on the internet hunting sites like this now. So I guess they were ahead of their time so to speak !

I owned a bunch of those Pat! They worked great for bear hunting. Tie the string to the rock on the bait barrel and you knew what time the bears were hitting! :)

I still have a couple of those thread timers too. Primitive, but better than nothing.

Did they text you when the string was triggered? =D

Better than that, TD - they mailed grainy black and white photos that arrived a week later!

Sounds similar to most of today’s Wildgame Innovations cameras.
