Columbia Blacktail complete the Deer slam
Was able to complete the Archery Deer slam with this little Columbia Blacktail deer. Its fitting my first deer shot and recovered with a bow was a spike mule deer! So this spike completes the species.

I was able to get it the last morning of the hunt, after a case of buck fever that week and missing a couple forky horn bucks :)

Columbia Blacktail
My buddy set up the hunt and got the permissons to some properties, and figured out some public options where I missed a 2pt. His efforts were rewarded with a very nice Blacktail buck! It also completes his deer slam.

Did you hit the turkey too?

Congratulations!

Are those deer already rubbed out this time of year?

Interesting how many guys leave the Columbia Blacktail till last. That was mine a few years ago as well.

Need to get back up there for Roosevelt elk…

Nice work! Did you get a 2'fer with that turkey? Man that blacktail your buddy got looks like a beauty too. Congrats all around.

Congrats. Let’s see your whole slam! Seems like we are 4 pictures short!

I finished mine in January with a mule deer. Mine will all make p&y except my Sitka, might have to go back and upgrade that guy…

Congrats on completing!

I do need to go back for a Sitka for the wall. Should have set it up for this year, based on my lack of tags anywhere else…

Congrats buddy! Go back and upgrade this fall so I have more stuff to score for you (as if you don’t already keep me busy enough haha)

From: Oryx35

Congrats! He's bigger than my Columbian Blacktail. haha if you don't start small it's harder to upgrade. I just have the Sitka left on my list.

my buddy did get a turkey on that trip

From: Lost Arra
26-Jul-23
Congratulations! That's a lot of planning. Impressive.

My archery deer slam was a dead deer with recurve, longbow, osage selfbow I made, compound and yes, a crossbow. All whitetails. Largest deer was with compound at the shortest distance, 9 yards.

From: Scott/IL
26-Jul-23
Congrats on getting it done!!! One of the goals I have is to get this completed in the next few years.

Whitetail and (small) Coues are on the wall already. 0-2 on muley trips and an unrecovered Sitka buck a few years back. Returning to Kodiak this September and hopefully things end better this time around.

Congratulations! I’m a Columbia Bt away from it myself. I had envisioned going to California while my daughter was in college out there but now that opportunity has come and gone as she’s graduated and now maybe my plan will shift back to Oregon again…. I will admit sitting here looking at the 4 best archery mounts they are all much better than my goal of taking a respectable representative animal of each.
