Got Him...
« on: September 02, 2013, 01:56:00 PM »
This guy had the misfortune of coming in to the river to drink right by the ladder stand I'd put up in a small willow. He tried to spin away at the shot but caught the Grizzly broadhead right back of his ear. Fell forward into the river and was drowned by the time I got down to him.  Haven't been able to do any stalking this year thanks to a broken ankle in July so it's been all stand hunting. I hope to get rid of this durn walking boot next Thur for hopefully my last Dr visit with this thing.

Shooting my trusty old Toelke Whip, Arrow Dynamics and 160 Grizzlies.

     

Best to all,
Life is wonderful in Montana!!

That will make a nice European mount I got one myself with a broadheads stuck in the skull. Happened on a deflection right behind ear. Even ran about 50 yards but I had to put one through his chest to finish him.

Good one.
 I'll be using the 160 Grizzlies myself this year, they obviously work!
Looks downright balmy out there.

excellent   :thumbsup:
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.
