From: Scar Finga

T-Roy

We are hunting Coues and Mule Deer, Javelina, and maybe a bunny or two.

We saw three Coues bucks and three does tonight. The wind was all wrong and I only got about 300 yards from a small 2x3 and decided not to go after him.

Back at it tomorrow!

Tough morning, I was on 90” 3x3 with 4 does, they went into a draw never came out that I saw and I never saw them again. 4 plus hours of glassing seeing them. This tree was the last place I saw the buck. There was another small buck running around by them.

Keep looking! The challenge should be to kill a 113 7/8" (or smaller) buck for the knife's blood baptism.

Keep after em. It will happen!!

From: Scar Finga

FAILLURE? I Think Not!

Just as I was just getting the new area figured out, a phone call and an event at home required me to leave my hunt early. The family is fine... Just house stuff, GRRR! I was on a few nice bucks the last couple days, but out of cell service. It was a tough hunt in which I didn't kill, but it was a great learning experience. I don't feel it was a failure at all, as the experience and challenge of bowhunting is what I want! If this was a rifle hunt, there would be a dead 4X4 Coues in the cooler;/ Or possibly a nice 3x3 Muley...

No Javelina were spotted nor harmed on this hunt... But I was on an area last night that looked very promising.

I will forward the knife in the next day or so, and hopefully the next hunter will baptize it in blood! Good Luck on your hunts gentlemen and ladies! Please keep this thread going, and God Bless! I may go back and edit some of my posts and add some more pictures when I finish up my "Repairs"

It was a pleasure and an honor to be involved with this adventure! Mark.

Mark,

Thank you.

Your dedication to initiate this knife for Morgan, as well as your posts and pictures are much appreciated.

Congratulations on a safe hunt with the "K114".

From: molsonarcher

I thought I would update this thread.

K114 will be leaving Ohio around 6:00 this evening headed back to Arizona. We are leaving fro Tucson early tomorrow morning headed to MX chasing coues. I will update on the knifes progress as service allows. The ranch is supposed to have WiFi, so hopefully daily updates will be possible.

From: molsonarcher

The adventure south of the border did not go as planned. I had a great hunt, but was unsuccessful baptizing K114. I almost got it done on day one, but the wind switched at the last possible minute (he needed to take 2 more steps), the does spooked and off he went with them. Day 2 had a slammer coming on a string behind a doe, but she changed direction about 200 yds out and I never saw them again. Day 3 decided to do some spot and stalk, found a good buck in a perfect location and off I went. Got about halfway there when a bigger buck came over the hill, saw the ranger, and ran straight to where my target buck was bedded, taking him up the canyon with him.

From: molsonarcher
03-Feb-19
Day 4 back in the blind. 2 does early, a dink a little later, then nothing for the rest of the day. Day 5 I decided to go with the guides and possibly fill the tag with the rifle in camp. While looking for a large buck seen earlier in the week, a monster was found so off we went. We got a good look at the deer at approximately 1300 yds as he was going over the hill. I didn’t know coues could get that big. We had 4 hunters in camp, so 2 went to the other side of the hill and we moved closer on our side in case they bumped him. An hour later the buck was down to the other hunters. They found him bedded and shot him when he stood to follow a doe.

From: molsonarcher
03-Feb-19
It was a great hunt. The rut was virtually over, and the weather wasn’t the greatest for deer movement, but our group killed 2 great bucks. A 109, and a 132! Myself and the other hunter could have shot deer over 110”, but they were broken, and one was clearly a young deer and needed to grow up. He should be a giant in a year or two. I’m hoping I get to chase him next year when I go back.

Hopefully the next hunter in line with K114 will be able to get it done. I will be mailing it out tomorrow or Tuesday.

Sounds like a great adventure molsonarcher! Too bad you didn’t connect with a good one.

From: molsonarcher
03-Feb-19
Thanks treeline. It really was. I saw 25-30 bucks and countless does. The mountainous terrain was a blessing and a curse. Spotting deer was easy enough, but trying to get in on them was difficult as they would not be there when we got to where they were. They had 8” of snow 3 weeks prior to our arrival, so there was water everywhere so they could water wherever they wanted. When we found any rut activity, there were multiple bucks with a hot doe. I tried several times to get close in this situation, but they moved around so much they were gone by the time I could even get to where they were. I tried rattling a few times, but all I got was a quick look and they went right back to the does. Frustrating but fun all at once.

03-Feb-19

Good luck TM, If that knife isn't christened soon, Scar is gonna have to cut his finger with it or something.

Wait, you're not drinking Budweiser in the presence of that knife, are you? That could explain everything.

Listen guys, I'm scheduled to take it on a bear hunt in June, and I don't want to be wondering if that knife is carrying a bit of bad mojo.

You just know Kelly is up there thinking: "I am in their head".

I just had a great chat with Mark and shared the blood trail recap. I shot her last night at 6 PM and went in this morning at 6:45 AM to take up the blood trail. The blood trail was very sporadic but my buddy Dave and I were able to stumble upon it every so often and pick it back up . The deer ended up going 1.1 miles my longest blood trail ever Kelly was certainly watching over us. The exit wound plugged and we found some fat that unplugged and put us on blood again. She crossed a road and through several yards before finding her in a small thicket. We were close to calling it quits when we found blood across the road. The most insane bloodtrail I’ve ever been on!

Happy Birthday, Kelly! We are all better for having known you, even though for some of us, it was only here on Bowsite.

I'm pretty sure that whoever takes KH114 hunting with them is going to be blessed with Kelly's luck, and also his wicked sense of humor and love of a good prank. I'm predicting when I take the knife Bear Hunting, I'll have a chance at a nice bear, and also probably fall flat on my face in the mud ... or something like that.

I will raise a beer to Kelly later tonight, and also to all those who love and miss him.

You can use any of the listed items, but if it's alcohol, K114 Prefers Blanton's Single Barrel, Don Julio or Patron Tequila, or at the very least some Grey Goose and Tonic with a nice lime wedge. In a real pinch Kelly would be fine with you using any Miller product!

The big tom had already flown across the river channel to roost but I called him to the edge, then purred him back across and right into the dekes. The Bullhead did the rest at 10 yards. The only thing holding his head on was a little flap of skin.

A few more days to hunt, then K114 is going to P&Y!

The knife adventure almost ended as it barely began... Fed Ex said they delivered it on Thursday to the NE farm where I'm hunting. Not here. None of the neighbors had seen it either. Then on a whim, my farmer friend checked an abandoned farmhouse down the road and there it sat. Mike had the address correct. The address is on the mailbox in front of my friend's house where he lives. Nobody has lived in this old house for over a decade. Why the driver decided to leave it there...well.. perhaps he graduated from University of Nebraska, where the "N" stands for "Nowledge"..

I signed the book last night and held the knife. That knife is going to be less a lot of steel before I get it.

Funny enough, after holding the knife, I was helping Palmquist count the money raised for the donations at the meet and greet. This is no lie... the initial tally came up to $1,114. Thought that was pretty cool.

Had a few dozen Bowsiters sign the journal last night at the Meet & Greet, those sober enough to hold the pen, anyway! Including Pat and Charlie. It also got to tour the trophy display.

A quick update. No blood on K114 yet. It’s hot and the buffalo are staying in the thick brush. We have had 3 great stalks so far. Very exciting. Last evening we were 40 yds but no shot before the wind swirled. The wind has got us every time. We have a pack of wild dogs in the area hunting and they have everything spooked up.

Guys, I have updated the dates at the top of the post... A name has been added for 2020.

We have a lot of dates open for 2020 hunts! All takers are welcome, and it DOES NOT have to be an archery hunt! I cleared this with Kelly's family and all hunt types are open!

Please remember that if you decide to take the knife on an adventure, it will be your responsibility to make sure it is delivered to the next person in line! Even if that means over night delivery at your expense!

If you are unable to take the knife on your scheduled dates, please forward it on, or return it me, and I will forward it!

Thanks again for taking it on an awesome adventure!

God Bless!

It all finally came together on day 5. We had a great stalk through the grass and my PH. Fritz Rabe, got me to within 25 yds. I put the 250 Iron will through lungs and the bull went about 200 yds.

We concentrated on a Sable for my wife. Also after the buffalo hunt I hunted Honey Badger. They built a leopard type blind and hung impala for bait. When it was being hit regularly we started our vigil at 4pm. Prepared to sit all night. Luckily he appeared right at dark. I made the shot and he crawled in a warthog Hole the Jack Russel “Jesse” drug it out for us. We could have killed many trophy animals after the buffalo hunt. But we have taken most of the plains game species and were concentrating on the Sable which of course really narrows the odds. It’s very early season for bow hunting. There is water everywhere and the grass is still tall and green. Making blind hunting tough. But we definitely could have taken many, many other species. I had my eye on a really big Eland also. But the Sable and Eland can wait till after my next Buffalo hunt. This being my 2nd archery buffalo hunt (1st successful) I am now officially hooked. I was actually hooked even after the unsuccessful first attempt. I’m a working stiff and now have to go home to start my next safari fund.

Don, it was an honor to be able to "blood" it and also take it to P&Y for everyone to sign. Every year Kelly and I talked about me coming to the deer camp. That was the year I hoped to make it happen. So carrying a little of his spirit on a hunt was a gift.

I'd like to add that it's a really beautiful knife and the journal is very special as well. Scar this is a really nice thing you've done, and a fitting tribute to a great man, and Bowsite brother.

I will be taking Kelly's memory with me, and I will always keep in mind his Attitude: Win, Lose or Draw: a fun time will be had with good friends, we will eat well, laugh a lot, and a few beers will be consumed! After me I believe it goes to Scoot.

Hello K114 friends, Most of you may have seen that I will be taking K114 with me here in a few weeks on a Bear hunt in Idaho. 18 years ago I started a non-profit kids hunting camp that has 3 events/functions each year. The first is our kids hunting camp in which we have put bows into over 4,000 kids hands over the last 18 years. The 2nd and 3rd is that we do hunting trips for kids with a life threatening illness. Usually this is CANCER. I have been arranging these hunts for over 11 years now. In 2016 I left another Org. and started doing the hunts directly thru my non profit. We do a Bear hunt each spring and a Elk hunt each fall. There is a huge ironic twist in my plight with K114. I have been around CANCER and these kids for years, then last night Scar Finga realized I am the same Mt. Man who posted on Bowsite a few days ago for strength in numbers with a prayer request for my beautiful wife that was just diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Scar was sure the Bear hunt was OFF because of my wife. NEGATIVE GHOST RIDER!!! We were just at the gun range last night getting Bailey dialed in with her Brand New RUGER 6.5 Creedmoor and Custom Leupold scope with her name engraved on it. Thanks to Ruger and Leupold. We can't wait for K114 to come our way and hopefully little Bailey who has battled cancer will be popping up here with a bloody knife. Thanks for your prayers for Bailey and my wife folks. God is GREAT and he has it. Scar said I could say but if anyone ever wants to support these kids hunting trips. www scooters youth hunting dot camp (no spaces) if you get my drift. Thanks again. SCOOT send it my way when you are done!!! (Pic is of little Bailey shooting her custom gun last night in preparation)

Well... I'm in a tree in New Brunswick Canada and K114 is here with me hunting bears. I must have got a little something in my eye here while reading these last posts.

I'll be sending the knife along with all the luck, positive energy and good karma to Scoot then it'll go on to MtMan and Bailey.

Shortly after arriving here in camp I got word that my best hunting buddy had a heart attack back in GA. He flatlined in the ambulance but they revived him and he's doing much better. Prayers out to you Jimmy, and to Bailey, Mt Man's wife, Kelly's daughter Morgan, my bud Del, and everyone else fighting a fight. With Kelly and the Bowsite bow brothers pulling for you, great things will surely happen.

Hug those close to and tell them you love them.

Hello everyone!!! This thread fills me with SO much joy! I love seeing you wanting to order Kellyville shirts and you all enjoying your hunts.

We haven’t opened the shirt in a while so I will see if we can soon for anyone who wants some.

Although I want to read all about your hunts in this thread, I am trying to wait until I get the journal to see!!

Thank you all for your unconditional support through this time. It’s only been a year and two days since Kelly passed, and that seems like only yesterday to me it happened. But knowing that his light shines throughout the country (and world) brings me to tears. Thank you all again for everything you’ve done.

Sorry for the delay folks, we got home at 3:00 a.m. yesterday and I had a full day of my daughter's softball game, family in town, and the county fair.

I will try to post more details in a separate thread at some point but unfortunately we did not get the knife bloody. We got to meet Hunter, who we both immediately liked, and had a great time for Ryan's 1st mountain experience, but no bears were harmed during the making of our trip. That being said the trip was awesome and we had a ton of fun. We also saw our 1st 3 bears ever while bear hunting after putting in about 100 hours in a stand chasing the dang things prior to this trip!

We stopped at the Post Office in Butte Montana and shipped the knife off to Mountain Man early on Wednesday morning. It was guaranteed to be there by today.

It sure is going to be a tough act to follow after Bailey’s amazing hunt and story but I know the next hunter in line is sure ready to make her mark in K114’s journey! 38 days to go!

K114 arrived safely in SD! Now I have a family fighting over who gets to read the journal first! Kia won of course!

Morgan - Our kids always enjoyed following your exploits with your dad and they’re enjoying seeing the other kids using K114... big and little.

You know how special your dad was and he spread that all around. And you do too.

My kids have adopted one of your catch phrases from one of your hunts.

It’s fairly regular that my kids look at me and say, “But Dad, it’s food!”

Please count us in for some Kellyville shirts and please continue posting your hunts with your mom, grandpa, uncles and friends. Your perseverance, attitude and demeanor have led to you having some small fans in our house... as well as a couple older ones.

Our thoughts are with you, your mom and your family.

Thanks so much Don! We appreciate it! I already know our time with K114 will be a success because it brings us closer to Kelly and helps all of us put things into perspective. God bless you and your family!
