Every now and then, I will read a Bowsite hunting story that I somehow missed when it was first posted. Frequently, I will even re-read some of my favorite Bowsite hunting stories. With my hunting season winding down, I have started to look for some enjoyable stories, and would like to encourage others to share some of their favorites.....either by title, or by posting the link.... Happy Holidays......

Well, Hell Jake. YOU wrote most of them ...

So get out there and do an exotic hunt and write it up, we're living vicariously through you!

TThomas, Paul@TheFort and Herdbull go on hunts and write stories I re-read over and over. As mentioned Kevin Dill always tells a great story as well.

Jake - I’m still voting for Pat to create a “Library Forum” with links to the high quality, inspiring and popular hunt recaps.

Including yours.

I’ve been meaning to create another thread along that line with links, but I’ve been swamped and am somewhat hesitant. I don’t want to overstep my bounds as though I’m some arbiter of Bowsite Quality.

Another plug for an awesome thread. The first time I met him at Sheep Show, I said “you’re the guy that wrote A Tale of Two Goats.” I can’t find it now. Not sure if it got archived somewhere but I can’t find it now.

It’s titled A Tale of Two Goats by zackman.

Several of the great ones been mentioned - Kevin Dill’s 15 days alone is certainly top shelf.

I love both of those Scoot! Man where does the time go? I have to say this one was my favorite, beat rifle hunt in Bowsite history! Ha!

The Paul’s bro’s moose hunt was something else! Hunt and Beav have had some awesome ones too. So many good guys on here and we all share the same passions, makes for great stories!

Bigeasygator, Due to Bowsite search command limitations/restrictions, I do my searches on Google now....especially for the older threads. They are still "out there".....you just need to know a couple effective "key words" to find a particular thread. If you do a search on Google, I'd suggest using your keywords, then a dash, the type in Bowsite….it seems to work as well as anything else that I have tried

Jake, I had tried that with Zack's "Two Goats" thread but didn't have any luck. Did manage to track down Busta's moose thread though!

Looks like Photobucket has gotten to the pictures, though you can still make them out. Trust me, the "original" pics were spectacular, as is the story that accompanies them!

BBs story from Colorado Unit 61 was the first one that really got my attention and inspired me to write a recap, and also take more pictures on all my hunts. It was titled Broken horns and broken dreams, or something similar.

From: Shiras42

My two all time favorites are Kevin's moose and BB's Season on the San Juan. Lots of others right up there though. Always like Jaq's mule deer hunt, the Paul's moose hunt, Busta's Canmore hunt, any CT live hunt, Jake's polar bear, and so many others. Oh, and the first time I saw the trapline thread I was hooked.

Great Post Jake! Fun to see these classics again. There are some great hunts and stories on this site. Good timing with the holidays to re read them. Lou's mule deer hunts, Hunt had some great elk and bear, Thomas used to post up some good ones, BigDan elk hunts, Busta's Canmore hunt was intense........man I could keep going on and on. Thanks to all of you for sharing these stories they have been an inspiration and encouragement of whats possible. Keep at em boys!

Since this hunt was done under some pretty cold conditions with no internet access, instead of posting an online update every evening, I simply called Pat's answering machine, and left audio updates. His machine would only allow about a 3 minute message.....so most messages are rather abbreviated. The day nine message is the one that summarizes how the hunt unfolded. You'll have to pretend that it is the early 1900's (before television) and the family is huddled around the radio, listening to an update - LOL

OTC Will’s 400 miles and Come September are 2 of my favorites. Will hunts (and tells stories) with a level of tireless dedication that few can match, but all can aspire to.

OTC Will's 400 miles thread.....2016

t-roy…..I NEVER used to get cold. Now, my hands get cold a little from time to time, but so do my feet, which weren't frostbitten....so I suspect that it is due to aging versus frostbite, but can't prove that.

I like all of Hunt Man's stuff. OTC Will does real good too. Deerslayer does some good ones as well. And, of course, I love the Paul's brothers. those dude's are straight up killers! All of Cnelk's threads in general are one of my favorites too. Embry's yearly thread gets me going. I really like all the hunt recaps. But, the all time favorite thread of mine is at the following address. Copy and paste into your browser. Pure Bowsite classic where crow was served to a lot of people.
