Our live hunt starts tonight
I'm here in Canada right now and we're going to discuss our Live hunt. First hunt from Canada since Covid!

Getting here was actually quite easy. You have to be vaccinated, and you have to get a Covid Test within 72 hours. Bring your paperwork with you and that's about it. IT WAS NOT HARD AT ALL! I expected worse.

Unfortunately, these outfitter up here are struggling. I was originally the only guy in camp all week, but Rob got a guy from Winnipeg to hunt too, so there's two of us now.

The biggest problem I've had since arriving is finding out that my new package of Slick Trick broadheads have bad threads. Not one of them would screw into an insert. There was another thread about this earlier in the month and now I've experienced it first hand. But if that's the biggest problem I have on this trip, I'm doing OK!

We will be posting daily at the end of the evening. It may be late for many of you but we'll keep after it.

Yes, the hunt is baited. Get over it. I am not interested in turning this discussion into a pissing contest about baiting.

Good luck Pat!

From: Rock

Buy a thread die and run it over your threads it will clean them up so that they will work.

From: Pat Lefemine
11-Oct-21
Rock, yes - plan to do that when I get home. I shouldn't need to do that however.

From: Old School

Have a great hunt Pat!

Kill a big one Pat! Stinking Slicktricks. What are you using now? Hopefully you had some old stock on hand? Shoot straight!

From: Rackmastr
11-Oct-21
Good luck Pat!!! Sounds like Rob sure runs an awesome camp up there.

From: Bob

I smell a future blood trail challenge. Good luck!

From: Medicinemann
11-Oct-21
I believe that the previous Slick Trick related thread was about ferrule/washer tolerances. Now your threads aren't up to speed. Disappointing to say the least......Are you shooting Standards, Magnums, Viper Tricks, Wicked Tricks, or something else? I was just curious if the challenges are restricted to one specific model of Slick Trick versus all of them.

From: Pat Lefemine
11-Oct-21
Slick Trick Standards, 4 blade 100 gr. This is not a washer tolerance issue. The threads are not machined correctly. Impossible to screw in and totally worthless.

From: BigOk
11-Oct-21
Good luck!!

Send them back and let them know who you are. Good luck!

From: Treefarm

Be patient (I know you are), a mature buck with perfect symmetry will show up. My prediction is 174 5/8” 10 point.

What do you get for tags Pat? 1 buck tag?

From: Pat Lefemine
12-Oct-21
Yes, just one buck

From: Hancock West
12-Oct-21
Pat, obviously you are looking for a nice buck when you go that far north but what exact characteristics or minimums are you looking for? Certain width, chocolate racks, 150", 5year+, etc?

From: Pat Lefemine
12-Oct-21
Hancock. If I like him I’ll shoot him. Not holding out for a giant or anything like that. I’ll shoot that buck from earlier if I get a chance. If Rob has a really big buck show up I will focus on him for the entire hunt. As of now it’s mostly 150-160 bucks on cam.

I've been looking forward to this. Thanks so much for the updates, Pat.

Sorry to hear about your SlickTrick woes. I've shot 125 grain Magnums ever since ST's were available, but their post-Gary prices, and issues like this have me a little leery of restocking my quiver with them. Hopefully you'll have a nice juicy entry/exit wound channel to show us that will change my mind.

Following! Tell Rob hello from Joey in Louisiana. I will be there on the 24th for a week long bowhunt. I shot a 160" beautiful symmetrical 10 with my rifle two years ago. Last year was supposed to be my first bowhunt, and got pushed back. Glad to see you are seeing some bucks. You'll get a good one.

12-Oct-21
Always enjoy your Canada and Kansas deer hunts. Good luck

From: Pat Lefemine

No Kansas hunt this year.

NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

12-Oct-21
That’s a day ruiner…..no Kansas

From: Rut Nut
12-Oct-21
Good luck Pat!

But I’m a little confused! You said in the feature: “It was touch and go with all the border closures and restrictions, and it was a pain in the ass to adhere to all the requirements, but I'm glad I persevered. I am the only hunter in camp. The other guys that booked decided not to take the risk.”

But you said here: “ Getting here was actually quite easy. You have to be vaccinated, and you have to get a Covid Test within 72 hours. Bring your paperwork with you and that's about it. IT WAS NOT HARD AT ALL! I expected worse.”

That sounds a bit contradictory....................

From: badguybuster

You have to get a test 72 hours before you arrive or after arriving in Canada?

From: Sean D.
12-Oct-21
Good luck Pat! Sure wish these restrictions would have not happened and I was up there with ya. I'll be sure to send you updates from Kansas though.

Enjoy your hunt Pan and I hope you get a big buck. I have a nice one hanging around my back yard.

13-Oct-21
Good luck, Pat! I did have the ferrule, blade and washer tolerance issue that Jake spoke about. The bad thing is they spun really well and are razor sharp. Unless I hear they are gonna hold their quality in a little higher regards, I’m moving to another COC head. Pretty sad.

Again, best of luck!

From: greg simon

I mean, it's ok...I'm sure anyone of us could have killed that deer...If we had: Paid for the hunt, traveled to Canada, sat on that stand, and made a killing shot at the moment of truth. Heck, probably with a longbow!!!

I'm kidding!!! Nice buck Pat. Congratulations, and great shot!!!

Congratulations... nice buck.

From: Pat Lefemine
14-Oct-21
12yards, the better question was what organ wasn’t hit? Maybe the pancreas!

We gutted him and determined it was intestines, stomach, liver, lung and heart, the broadhead was past the meat but inside the hide. My favorite shot if you’re comfortable taking it. Just remember the aiming point is way back near the ham. Also, I don’t recommend this angle with a mechanical broadhead.

Hell of a shot Pat. I’ve taken that shot once on a doe before I couldn’t get a shot off and had similar results. 30 yards and fell over dead.

I just shot the V3 at the shop last weekend…a “used one”…

If the season didn’t open Monday I’d have left with it…

From: spike78
14-Oct-21
That buck seemed to have a nice dark aiming point on its hair that would have hit the opposite shoulder. Curious on the outcome if hit there vs Pats hit. Nice deer!

From: happygolucky
14-Oct-21
Great buck and a hell of a shot.

14-Oct-21
Fantastic shot! That hard quartering away shot is of course very deadly, but also very difficult to pull off!! I’ve screwed it up myself by shooting too close to the front leg and passing it through the armpit. Congrats!!
