Here is one from New Zealand did a ten day hunt with two friends from the states who were rifle hunting. with the gun hunters around it made it a bit difficult to bowhunt. not just cause they were shooting but more of a time issue. I shot 2 nanny thar with the bow and 2 bull thar and 1 chamois with the friends rifle on the day we were due to fly out. i will go again while im out here to get one of each with the bow, it was just a good way for me to get a few animals down and get some capes home for cheap. we also took one red stag and 3 fallow deer bucks and a total of 6 thar and 3 chamois it was a good trip! here is a pic of the bow kill nanny.

here is a pic of my big bull thar i didnt measure the horns but i think somewhere in the 13 inch long range and second pic is my chamois. yes they are rifle kills i know big shame but im a hunter, and will be out again to get one of each with the bow. I have lost/broken about 15 arrow here so far. NZ is really hard on gear my bow is battered and scratched up bad broken fibres etc. etc. but still shoots good, might be onto some deer and pigs in the next month we will see then im off to Aussie.

As far as I know the first week in June spring bear season, there were 3 bears that were shot that by bowhunters that "green" scored over 22 and possibly more that I don't know of that pretty good stats for Manitoba bear hunting

What a beauty though!! Worth ending the season for I'd say. And if you shot him on Aug 30th, I think that means you're in a zone for doe tags. Could always try and lengthen the season that way. At least give your November clothes one wear!

Congrats again, looks like a real nice buck!

It seems that after 10 days and over 100 miles of walking calling and generally losing stuff and my mind, the Lord saw it fit to bless me with some elk meat (and bone)!

Words can not describe the level of pumptedness last night! It's a good thing, because there is always the work of getting these guys out!

He came in to my buddy Manuel and I as we walked into a swamp. We were cow calling the odd time because we knew we were in elk. A 19 yard walking shot sent him running, but the cow calls stopped him at 45 yards, and we watched him tip over. What a feeling. I saw the nokturnal enter and zip out of the elk and into a log. Very happy with the 150 gr. phatheads as well. It had been 6 days of hunting since the last elk sighting, and 3 sightings over 9 days wasn't exactly what I was hoping for. I had a passed 2 different spikers on day 2 and 3 as I really wanted a racked bull. My wish came true with 2 days left. Hunting in 3 stints helped to keep me motivated, as other than yesterday it had been all lone wolf hunting until that point.

Very happy my dad loaned me a quad, as we deboned other than front shoulders and ribs (took them whole), but still all done, netted 175 lb. of meat each. So we were packing 400lb of meat out, over 2.5 miles, I have to say - the quad took it like a champ!

Congrats! An accomplishment to be proud of.

I shot this Elk on the 8th of September, my hunting partner Rob and myself drove to Ducks in the morning getting there pretty late we new that we wouldn't make it to our camp in time seeing it a 10k walk so we decided to hunt close to where we park are truck. Got out to an area we have hunted in the past, it was getting late so we let out a bugle and got a response immediately, ran over to a clear cut where the bull was. I moved up about a hundred yards from Rob where he keeped bugling t6o the bull, I started cow calling, making the bull think cows had separated from the bull, he came into 30 yards and got an arrow stuck in him, Rob bugled and the elk tried to bugle back, that was his last breath. I was pumped 2 hours into the hunt bull down. My best one to date. Thanks Rob for being there to call him in.

Wasn't sure it was going to happen this year but it came down to the last few days of the season. I was out with my nephew on thursday evening, when a spike bull came into the calls and he made the 18 yard shot to close the deal. On saturday evening I was on my own walking through an area, moving slow and cow calling when a bull responded. I set up and continued to call, which brought in the cows, had one walk by me at 20 yards. She began to get down wind of me, eventually winded me and to my advantage she ran away from the heard. I then cow called the bull bugled back and I cut him of with a challenge. Well he came unglued, came running in, I stopped him with a cow call and made the 22 yard shot with my recurve. He jumped a few yards, stopped again after I cow called, stood looking back at me for about fifteen seconds. He then began to stumble away but only made it another 20 yards and I saw him go down within 50 yards of me. We were blessed with two elk in three days along with some great memories.

Great job on the elk Darryl and nice buck Justin!!

One less wiley coyote is not gonna hurt anyone's feelings. Good job Adam!

Got my first ever archery moose yesterday. Caught him on the edge of a slough pestering a cow. Put a stalk on him when they laid down in some catails and managed to get him with a 37 yard shot when they stood up. The funny part was they had moved about 70 yards from where they originally bedded down and when we got to where we could see the spot they were supposed to be in they stood up right beside us.

Man those guys are tough though. He walked about 200 yards before going down. I stuck another one in him when he managed to get back up but he was pretty well finished anyway. Double lungs both shots and one just clipped the heart a bit.

Now we just gotta get my hunting partner one.

Hey way to go Tim!! The smile says it all! That is sure a sweet kill, and you can't beat moose meat for sure. Something about taking a new species always adds an extra thrill so congrats on getting it done! (and for some reason I find that if you're able to get a second arrow into the same animal it is somehow extra rewarding. Kind of like a two for one I guess)

Thanks for the extra look Darryl, that sure is an awesome looking unique elk!! What a memory and boy he'll look good in any room! Man that elk is just so cool.

Well yesterday my hunting partner Reg filled his tag with his first ever moose. We set up over looking a slough in the center of a bush pasture and made one cow call when this guy started coming in. To our left about 80 yards a cow came out of the bush and started stomping towards us with her ears pinned back and her hackles up. She came in to about 30 yards and stood there all mad as could be. Another small bull came out behind her and started moving towards us too. Luckily the big fellow hung up and the other two finally must have figured something was up because they slowly moved off. After a couple more cow calls the big guy started moving our way again. Reg had set up about 50 yards away from me and I cow called some more at the big guy and he slowly moved closer. He hung up until I moved back with our cow Montana Decoy. I guess he decided that he'd better come over for a closer look and he came across the dry end of the slough right out in front of Reg. 40 yard shot and the bull ran past me and walked over to a small bluff where we lost sight of him. We backed out and gave him a long 3 hour wait because Reg felt he'd maybe hit him a bit far back.

After an eternity we headed back in and low and behold found a cow and 2 calves in the same bluff. We didn't want to spook them in case the bull was still alive so we just took our time and glassed over the bluff as good as we could. After a bit I saw a strange looking very straight stick which looked a bit odd. Took me a second before I realized it was his arrow with the broadhead sticking straight up in the air. Yup we were pretty happy and relieved that he had died almost where we lost sight of him.

It's been a great moose season for us. Both of us tagged out on our first ever archery moose and we had a blast doing it. Reg is getting a shoulder mount done on his bull. We measured it and it came out at 48 inches. (not exactly sure if we did that right but it's gotta be close)

Nice job everyone, and now after 2 years of tag soup here is my best buck ever. 20 yd shot and about an 80 yd recovery. I am horrible at scoring or aging deer so if you want to throw out a guess please do.
