2015 WTA game pole
« on: April 20, 2015, 07:31:00 PM »
Since no one else has started a game pole here I guess I may as well do it.

I was very fortunate to get a crack at a turkey this past weekend. It was quite windy but the turkeys were gobbling steady which is unheard of where I hunt. After the hit the turkey had trouble running so he took to the air and landed on the other end of the field 300 yds distant and went into the marsh. Five minutes later his buddy went in the marsh after him. I found them both a hour later with the buddy on top doing unspeakable acts to his dead buddy.

 

If anyone has any pics to ad from this year get them up here.

Nice bird.
 
Maybe it was that pink fletching that caused a reaction in his buddy!

Thanks Greg.  It was a fun September and a freezer full of elk is a great bonus.

I got this doe a little over a week ago on my property in central Wisconsin. I got her from a stand that I don't think I hunted for about five years. When I got up there I couldn't believe how much things had grown up and wasn't sure that I could a get a shot at all. She stopped in front of the stand almost straight down under a ten inch hole in the foliage.

Took this buck last Weds, 11/4, my first with a longbow.  Finally got that monkey off my back.
