Biggie's African Romp.....
« on: July 22, 2004, 04:06:00 PM »
I didn't ask Biggie if I could post this here, I just did it anyway.  He might be big enough to whoop me, but he'll have to catch me 1st.    "[laffsmyl]"  

Anyway, his hunt is definately a testimony of Trad Bow effeciency, as well as hunter effeciency.  Biggie went SEVEN for SEVEN!

Tip of the Hat sir.....I'm tickled for ya to say the least.  Hope you got some footage of your trip.

The most important part of your hunting setup is the broadhead.  The rest is just the delivery system.

Nice work, MR. Biggie!  :)  Is that the Woodsman or the Razorcap that was used?

Thanks guys...
I'd heard some grumblings about trad guys being "less than accurate" I was determined to make a good showing for trad bowhunting. Like Uncle Don Thomas says, "ya gotta wait till they ask for your arrow."

Cograts,I'm sure the memories will last a lifetime.What bow arrow combo did you use and what was the average shot distance?


Thanks,
CB

Didn't say I was gonna run you down (although don't underestimate me remember a grizzly can run 30 MPH) I just said I was gonna catch ya.  :saywhat:  

Holding you and waiting for Biggie to show up shouldn't be to much trouble unless your all greasy from eating fried ocra or something.   "[tunglaff]"

CB, used a 65# Black Widow longbow, the 350 heritage shaft from 3 Rivers (650 grains) Razorcaps Broadheads.
All shots were under 20 yards.

The Impala was 25". My good friend Marty McMahon from Florida took a 26+"er that is number 8 in SCI with hs Robertson. Couldn't have ahppened to a nicer guy........
