2013 WTA Members "Success" stories and pictures
« on: August 26, 2013, 10:06:00 AM »
Hey everybody,

We'll get this one started a little earlier this year, as we have WTA members headed to the far reaches of the country for elk, moose, and other fun critters.

After you submit your stories and pictures to the STUMP SHOOTER, how about posting some stories and pictures of your "Success" this year. Now "Success" means different things to different people, so even if you finally successfully made it to the woods, tell us about it. For others, "success" means a full freezer, or a superb specimen of the species of interest, or just a great time out with family or friends Tell us about them.

Good idea Jerry. I leave for my first elk hunt with Pete McMiller on Wednesday in NW Colorado. Hearing my first bugle, seeing my first elk and enjoying my first camping at 9200 ft will all be very special. Hopefully all the sights, sounds and opportunities will give me plenty to report.

Joe, I was hunting in D also. We hunted around Drummond. I saw quite a few also. I have shot 5 bears before this one,but they were all with my wheel bow. My goal was to harvest a legal bear with a longbow, the other goal was to shoot a 400lb bear but that didn't happen. I'm not trying to please anyone but me.....so I'm happy with my bear.

I put some meat in the freezer this weekend. I really have to laugh after this one though. I used to think that when a deer ran back to the thick stuff on my property and made for a 150yd drag through alders and marsh grass that was a lot of work. Going out to hunt on my recent trip to AK was way more work than that. I was smiling all the way back to the truck with her.

Thanks Gun, that is my new favorite huntin shirt.

Bruce, thanks as well. I started a thread on PBS but have not had a chance to ad to it. I will next week I hope after I write my presidents column, the WBH column, a tip for the Stump Shooter, and start on my story for the Stump Shooter. But before that I am going hunting.
