While elk hunting in Idaho, I managed to sneak up to within 15 yards of this bear, made a great shot. At the shot, the bear ran right at me and stopped at a measured 12 feet and looked back. After a couple seconds, it luckily ran off to my left about 25 yards and tipped over. Very exciting !

Used my new Javaman Elkheart 46# @ 28" .

Congratulations to all of the successful hunters. I finally got a shiras cow moose tag and was fortunate enough to fill it. It was a fabulous hunt with a long time friend who also filled his cow tag. My guess is that I put 250# of meat in the freezer. The Robertson Fatal Styk came through again as well as the trusty Traditonal Only shafts and the ever deadly Wensel Woodsman broadhead.

Got my first elk on my Uncle's birthday. Wish she would have went the other way so he got the shot, but we are both happy with the results! No teeth left on top and all 4 left on the bottom were loose.

Opener here in Ohio, I got lucky at 9am. Grunted this guy in across a field. cool weather. He walked right under me. Shot at 5 yds, and he went 25 and dropped. Field dressed 210lbs. He is only a 6ptr with a kicker, but certainly thick.

Scored on my first deer this year. Went out this afternoon about 2:00 and got in my stand overlooking a reall good trail coming out of some thick stuff with several good scrapes on the flat. About4:00 a deer was coming down the trail and the wind had switched and he winded me. It was a buck but didn't get a good look at him. I did some grunting and some doe bleats but nothing. Settled back in and a little later did some more grunting. About 15 minutes later I heard one walking from in front of me and here came a buck right towards me. As he turned to the right I got ready and drew as soon as he cleared some limbs. I released and hit him in ribs quartering forward. He ran hard out of sight and I heard him crash. Shot him with my Black Widow 47#@28" with a wood arrow and 160 grain 3 blade VPA broadhead. He is an 8 point.
