THE YEAR 1840, SOUTH EAST ARIZONA, APACHE COUNTRY

CHAPTER ONE:

The young Apache hunter named Steps Between Rocks, who had seen sixteen cycles of the 12 moon months, sunk low in his hiding place. The day was very hot so he only had on his breechcloth/leggings and moccasins; his dark skin and black long hair blended in well with the surrounding brown sand, gray rocks and sticker brush and a few green cactus plants. It had been so dry in the region he was lucky to find this water seep high up in the rocky hills, and around it were a few small deer prints in the sand. He had greased his upper body with animal fat to cut the human smell. His mother had made him a mask made from a deer's head but it was too hot to wear this day. He kept low as the sun was setting and at long last a cool shadow was being cast across the seep and his hiding spot.

He doubted he would hear these small deer coming to water as they were fine in structure, gray in color, silent on the hoof, and as he was told, came and went like the smoke of a dying camp fire or like a Gray Ghost that might be here one second and then gone the next.

His left hand held his favorite bow made of Mesquite wood and strung with deer back sinew. His father had given him this bow along with a quiver of chert stone point arrows with black Raven feathers. He had tried to make his own stone points but just needed more time to acquire the skill. His uncle was the stone point master and also made a few Obsidian blade knives. Scars on Steps Between Rocks' fingers were a testimony to this as he tried to see if the knife was sharp enough. He wore this very special knife on his belt as he just knew it would bring him luck this day.

It was becoming darker and cooler and as he raised his head over the rocks, he saw movement ahead and approaching the small ring of water just a few strides ahead, a gray deer approached with caution, head up smelling the wind for danger. The young hunter froze as the deer approached and when the deer's head was at the water, he slowly pulled back on the bow and released the arrow. The Great Spirit guided the arrow into the deer's heart and while a fatal hit, the deer turned and bounded out of sight.

Before it became too dark the hunter followed the blood and found the deer in the hollow of a close by ravine. Kneeling down and placing his hand on the still warm hide, he stated, " thank you for giving up your life so as to nourish mine." He then looked to the heavens and stated, " Oh Great Spirit, thank you for all of your creations".

He then took out the very special obsidian knife and cut away only what could not be used. Tying all the deer legs together he placed the deer over his shoulders and headed back to camp being careful not to step on the many rocks but only "between" them as not to stumble or fall. He felt a special pride but knew shortly, he would become a true warrior of the tribe. Things were changing fast as was the future of this Apache tribe. At least tonight there would be song and full stomachs and many phrases to the Great Spirit. Oh yes, and phrase to that special knife that had brought him luck.

Paul,

If you went and got a Coues with a self bow and a chert head, I will do a back flip!

Even a modern hot rod laminated recurve would be over the top!

K-114, Chapter Two. The year 2021 SE Arizona

A thousand mile to the north an elder bow hunter prepared to head south to hunt deer in Arizona. The January season for deer was for bow hunters only and this time the hunter would seek the Desert Mule Deer as his target as he had killed six Coues deer in the previous years and sought to change to a different species for a new challenge. He was excited for the opportunity and had with him a few spots to hunt provide by fellow hunters; spots where they had seen mule deer. He also realized that Arizona had been going through a drought period and the lack of moisture to fill streams and dug-outs that would hold deer in the area, might hamper his efforts.

Leaving five days before the season start on January 1, he left Colorado for the drive south and arrived in the area within a day and a half. Yes, it had been dry all right and all of the washes were dry and most showed ATV and side by side tracks left by recreationalists and even Border Patrol looking for illegals. He check out a few water tanks but no water in them and found no deer tracks or other signs. After talking to a few local bow hunters, that had good insight of the areas, that it had been very bad the past seasons , the decision was made on day 5 to change locations and deer species. The deer species was again the Gray Ghost, AKA Coues .

Dry can be good if there is water around but lack of water not only limited the deer but concentrated the hunters to private land who had a few cattle tanks.

the Gray Ghost
The elder hunter from Colorado, who now goes by the name "Steps Between Rocks", headed farther east to the higher hills where the Coues deer live with more tree cover and moisture. He would travel more quickly than the native Americans that lived and hunted the areas over a hundred years ago. His equipment was different but the modern bow still shot arrows but of a different kind. Skill and patience and knowing the habits of the game was important, so that does not change at all.

What made this Arizona Deer hunt special was that the Colorado hunter, Steps Between Stones, AKA, Paul@thefort would be carrying a very special knife, K-114, a knife that had traveled far and wide with fellow bow hunters, a knife that represented all that is good in a person and all that is good and loving within a family, the Kelly Harris family. And like the Native American Indians, family is the core and a reason to live and to provide for.

I arrived at the new location on December 31, a day before the deer opener and set up camp. I had hunted this area two times previous and had been successful both times but I was surprised by the larger number of bow hunters that already set up camps in the area, many of the same hunters I had seen before, two years ago.

During the next five days I scouted/hunted known areas but without success, only saw two spike bucks of which I grunt call one in and the other with antler rattling at 1 pm from a ground blind. On the afternoon of day 5, as I was riding my mountain bike up the road after my morning hunt, I met hunter Joe in his truck, and he stated he had just killed a Coues buck an hour before and was heading back to camp for help to bring it out. I told Joe I was available to help and just needed to back- track to camp for my back pack. He agreed. An hour later we were standing over his 2x3 buck, and within the next hour had it ready to pack out. He was thankful for the help as he needed to head for home that evening. I was also thankful as I found a new area I had not been in before so the following afternoon I head up the same trail but stopped short to check out a small water seep running into a dry rock filled stream bed half way to where Joe had his action. Looked like a good place for a late afternoon set as I looked around for a good hiding place and found one behind three close together, tall pine tree trunks twenty yards away from the seep. I cleared away all of the dry leaves and just left the pine nettles to kneel on. The cool breeze was coming down hill and to my advantage. Some times I knelt and most often stood and looked in all directions as I did not know from which a deer might approach. The seep and dry creek bottom was to my right and to my left thirty yards away was a higher bank that led away into an oak tree flat. I gave this flat a lot of attention and at five o'clock a doe was seen but traveling away. ( Now I had left the K-114 knife in its carrying case for the past five day, and in my truck for safe keeping but on this very afternoon, I took it out and placed it in my back pack and yes for good luck.) Luck is good! Fifteen minutes more of legal shooting time when I see movement along the low bank to the flat. A buck and he was sort coming my way but then he hit a trail heading right for me, came down a short drop off from the flat at thirty yards and closing. His body disappeared behind a large pine tree trunk. I was at full draw when he popped out at 9 yards quartering to me, the Great Spirit guided my arrow into his body and then out. I saw sparks as the broad head hit a rock behind him. The buck reversed his travel back onto the flat and laid down 50 yards away. He tried to get up but could not, his head was up and down a few times as I watched him with my binocular for the next fifteen minutes until dark. I backed out and headed to the truck and then to camp with confidence I would find him there in the morning.

Need I say more?
so there you have it, another adventure with a very special knife, K-114 and all of the memories that go with it. I was able to get back to camp, write down in the diary, the story I have just told (added a finger tip of deer blood on the page), packed up the knife, then took it to the local post office to ship it off to its next destination.

Nothing has changed much in the last 100 years because bow hunters just love to bow hunt, like the young Apache hunter named "Steps Between Rocks". If you have ever hunted the very rocky land scape of Arizona, you will know the meaning of, why his name.

My very best, Paul@thefort, AKA, Steps Between Rocks.

Since I am still in the deer hunting "Zone" I completed an Euro skull of the Coues buck last night and then measured for gross PY measurements. Yes prior to the 90 drying period but wanted to see if it might make the minimal score of 70. I came up with 74 3/8 so it might squeak in.

Thank you all for the nice comments about this hunt and story. As many of you know the history of the Kelly-114 knife, I wanted to do the knife and its memory justice. May my story and others past and future stories and hunts in memory, bring peace to the Harris family. my best, Paul

I was asked what BH I had used. First I believe that any sharp fixed or mechanical BH would do if hit in the right place. I pull 60# and a 250 fps arrow speed. This buck was near 100# live weight, and only 18 to 20 inches wide. This buck was shot at 9 yards with a NAP Kill Zone COC mechanical. After the pass through shot, I saw sparks after the BH had hit a rock 10 yard behind the deer. At first I thought the BH was totally gone and the arrow shaft had also broken. The next morning after retrieving the deer I found the arrow and BH totally intact. The question might arise, would I use this BH again if I had the opportunity to re-sharpen the two blades and COC head? Answer: Not on a deer but possibility, on a turkey or goose. My best, Paul

From: StickFlicker
13-Jan-21
Paul, are you sure that's an NAP Kill Zone? I think that's an original COC Rage? You can replace the blades (including the blade on the tip), if the body of the broadhead is not damaged.

From: paul@thefort
13-Jan-21
YOu might be correct but it sure looks like a NAP. I see the blades can be exchanged. The blades are locked down with an Oring and not a collar like a Rage.

Also, Here is the meat cuts I got of this buck. figuring the max meat available was 25-30 pounds from a 90-100 deer.

1. both ribs sides, bone in = two meals

2. tenderloins 2 = one meal for 2 persons

3. back straps = six meals, 3 per side

4. two front shoulders = meat for at least 4 meals depending how used

5. one roast from rear ham

6. 4 strip stakes from rear ham

7. all remaining meat from hams and neck meat want to bugger== 6 one pound packages.

Total: 23 meals for two persons. Not bad for these small deer.

The original Rage did use an O-ring and not a collar like they do now. Here's a pic of the NAP Killzone. Note the slot the runs length-wise through the body of the broadhead. The Rage's body is solid one piece.

You are correct, ie the BH I used was a Rage. What will people think of me now? I might be banned from BS. :)

A great story of a great hunt, and the K-114 knife made it all the more special. I’ve come to expect nothing less from you Paul, great job !
