At 7:45 AM a doe came bolting out of the thicket, across the ridge top, and off the other side...oh yeah, and right by my stand.  Got set, figured the doe might be leading a buck right by me....not so.  about a minute later I hear a yaping yotie bought 150 yards behind me.  He was lost, she done tricked him.  As he yapped off in the wrong direction, I grinned.

Had to come back to the office...going back in around 2:30.

Hello everybody I finally got myself a new computer and a faster connection   :D   Love it !

These pictures are from a trip to Idaho in september this year. We were 4 bowhunters ( the other 3 with wheelbows ) from Denmark and we got two bulls. Both bulls were younger animals but I am happy with mine anyway. The second day I asked the guides for permission to go up in the mountains alone and after two days alone in the mountains ( they call them hills ) I got this bull by sneaking up to him. He actually had cows with him even though he was a young one. And it was not privat land or any "easy" stuff like that, I met other hunters twice up there, they were walking around bugling all the time.
I shot a badger down in the valley too but missed a perfect chance at a grouse.
It was a great trip. GREAT scenery
Oh yeah I almost forgot. When we cut of the backstraps he had a broken piece of alu arrow sitting right above the spine !!
It was all healed up around the wound and he was in perfect condition, bugling and chasing cows. we guessed that the arrow must have been from last year. Talk about educated elk   ;)

In Denmark I hunt Roedeer 80 % of the time.
They are much smaller then whitetails.
This is a mature roedeer doe

Wensday evening 3 grey ghosts appear in the be-witching 30 minutes before dusk....two does in range but no shot, ....one was a buck I was sure...his structure hinted, but too dark to see horns....He made for the 1st deer from a stand I've seen this year that was not in bow range....

I was on point for an hour and a half this AM...I don't know how many I saw, coming and a going, all were from 15 to 25 yards out ofbow range, but I did see two bucks, and I'm bought positive I saw the buck I seen Wensday evening.....small basket 8 looked to be, whole rack well inside his ears.  2nd buck was a shooter for sure. As I figured, with the full moon, they moved from 10:00 till 11:30, and I spooked on on the way out.  Wish I could have stayed through lunch....

Going back in tomorrow morn.

I finally got my film developed.  If anybody wants to get a view of my FIRST recurve buck and see what spent 15 minutes stomping around looking for a hot doe and then freshened the scrape . . .  before walking within 20 yards to catch a Magnus Stinger 2 blade w/bleeder from my Shakespeare 55# Necedah.  So very exciting!

You're right, but you have to be a member of webshots to view.  I'm going to sign in on the website recommended by TradGang.  Until then, you can login as smalson with the password bowpics if you want.  There's nothing secret there and I'm not going to add any more anyhow!

Like you Terry, I didn't get to hunt today, as the kids made me promise to help decorate.  Well, we finished that, and both my daughter Avery and son Hunter wanted to "go hunt some squirrels".  How do you say no to that? Here they are on stand, (Hunter has three longbows, but just got his pellet gun, so that was today's weapon of choice for him)

   


And here is Avery's first kill.

 

It doesn't get a whole lot better.
