Always tough trying to find hogs running around during the day on a full moon night.

An end to a great day in the field, hopefully we'll get out at least one more time before Doug has to fly home.

Yep, we had a ball and you know I'm up for more. We gotta get that group pic after all. The island hospitality is always great to experience. The friends I've made here in HI over the years are some of the best guys and gals anywhere. Mahalo again guys.    :shaka:

Trust me, Doug's been wearing shorts and slippers every possible minute!    :D  

That elk was yummy!!! We made tacos out of that!

Well I just took the boys and dog out for a hike thinking that  20*   seemed like a nice break in the weather then I see this thread. This NY winter is wearing me smooth. Have fun fellas, the pics look great.

Heading out shortly to meet Ryan and Jerry again but thought I'd throw this little report in from yesterday. Not especially trad bow hunting but certainly Island related.

"Man I sure wish I'd had my bow fishing rig but haven't figured how to get onto an active Military Base with it yet.
Two bonefish and two goatfish, even got a chase from a little barracuda. The sharks (black tips mostly I think) were crazy. Had 30 of em (not little guys either, 6' to 8' long) around me at one time chasing the bonefish. Poked two of em with my rod to get em to leave when I landed the first bone. Three of em a few feet away just waiting for me to release the fish. Had to take him to shallow water to keep him from being eaten. My sweet wifey on think beach thinks I'm Crazy..."   ;)

I've taken my bow fishing rig out a few times but never had an encounters like this before. No doubt I could have shot numerous sharks while wading in knee to waist deep water. At times it was literally like being surrounded by a pack of wolves. Very tense but I can't wait to go out there again!   ;)

Well we still didn't bring home the pork but saw several pigs and flung a few arrows. Just dont get better than that. I have to thank Jerry and Ryan again for the great Island Hospitality!  We've got a couple more days here so hope to get back up to the North Shore again. After that it's back to a Montana Winter that may till June.  ;)
