Nice pics Jeff, pretty place isn't it?  Breakfast was good, and it was good to see you and meet Bill.

Myself and some other Trad guys got together and went for a hunt for the mighty Sambar Deer in Victoria's High Country. No Game sighted, and very little sign, as there was plenty of Wild Dog (Dingo) sign and this has moved the deer out of the area we were hunting. Didn't matter though as we had a great time in a beautiful part of the world.

See guys...It does snow in Australia!

Hmmm,looks like Island Pond to me Jeff!  I had their (MVO's) first archery kill there with a moose in '97.  I started a "tradition" of sinking my arrow into the rafters of the bunk cabin.  Are there many arrows there?

Steve, things have changed since 1997, and there is now a delux cabin with 4 rooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 shower, and a big living room with a woodburner for the hunters!  And Dean saved that rafter, with probably 20+ arrows stuck in it, and placed it in a prominent corner of the new cabin!  How I wanted to leave an arrow or two in it, but I needed a little more practice and luck.....

I did a short weekend moose hunt Oct 1-3 in Southeast Alaska.  We didn't see any as we weren't far enough up the river.  I'll drop a few pics in.

Congratulations, Bowfire!  I'd be very happy with one of those this fall.

This is one of my favorite threads, but not as active this year as it was last year. Lets keep it goin!  ;)

Here's my first deer of the season. Everything worked perfectly. I had a great wind, she stopped slightly quartered and in the middle of my shooting lane, the shot went right where I was looking and she went down fast. I wish it always happened like that.

I meant to post these photos back in August....

Seems the family and I were touring the Rocky Mountains in August, enjoying God's creation and creatures, like this moose..

 

And this deer..

 

And these elk...

 

Each animal sighting stirred my hunting instincts, the coyote's howling woke me at night, and the bull elk's bugle touched my soul.  Somehow my Brackenbury Drifter recurve and a few arrows had made the trip too, hidden under the seat, and after a little sweet talking, begging and even a tear or two (hey, I'm not too proud to cry), the women in the truck agreed to a little break from the driving.  They got a hotel with a pool and cable TV, and Daniel and I got to explore the Pawnee National Grasslands of Colorado for antelope.

We were in a likely looking area at dawn...

 

and saw antelope immediately!  We spent the day exploring the area and watching several groups, even trying a stalk or two.  We found a large group of bucks feeding on an alfalfa field, and watched them from a distance, trying to learn their patterns..

 

The next morning, we were in their previous day's bedding area with the wind in our favor, and soon saw them eating their breakfast of alfalfa.  The lead buck headed towards a distant water tank - it was decision time, as we had to pick up the girls after lunch and head east for home.  Should we stay or should we try to get ahead of the lead buck and hope the group would follow him? We scrambled and soon were on the opposite side of the field, expecting big things to happen soon.

After an anxious wait, I peeked over the hill - the herd was safely settling into their beds, exactly where we had been at daylight.  Bad decision!  Oh well, it was a fun sharing my first, although very short, antelope hunt with my son!  Maybe next time we'll guess correctly.  I enjoyed exploring the prairie..

 

We'll be back in 2007 when Daniel can carry his own bow!

Oh I wanted to real bad but this is one of my best stands and the rut will be kicking next week. No sense in buggering up the area.

She's a lucky little one. Bet she's tender too.

Awesome pics Jeff, especially the cow and calf!

I was lucky enough to get two more deer last weekend. Been having some great luck this year, now I hope a big'n comes by.

It's a Chastain Wapiti, 55# and I want to say 56 inches. He doesn't make many one pieces, it's a great shooter though, I'm very happy with it.

Here's my first traditional kill. I took this 8 pointer with the Osage longbow and self nock arrows I made last year. He came in to 7 steps from my stand, I hit it high and behind the last rib. It was getting dark so I left him and followed up the next morning. With the help from my son we found him after about 4 hours of tracking.
