2012 was a pretty good year....UPDATED on pg 2
« on: December 20, 2012, 09:41:00 PM »
Had a good year with my Jack Howard Gamemaster Jets in 2012.

February in Tejas....

Big and stinky (the boar, that is)...

   

Smaller, pretty as a pig, and better eating dry sow.....

   

October 11 here in Indiana...he tempted me a bit too much.  7 yard shot quartering on, 70 yard recovery, 5 minute track for Oskar.

   


Shot this doe around October 20 here in Indiana, 4 yards quartering away.  Weird exit down front leg - arrow threaded right down the leg.  She went about 90 yards, not much blood on the ground due to the weird exit.  Another 5 minute track for my wife Katia and Oskar (she handles the dog, I just follow behind and try to stay out of the way).

   


Entry.....

   


Exit.....


   


November 14 in Iowa on Dad's place.  Shot him at 12 feet - I'm DEADLY at 12 feet!     ;)    .  He's a 5 1/2 yr old, and I'm tickled with him.


   

Got a doe tag left for Iowa, some time off for the late season, and a score to settle with a mule-faced big yellow doe that busted me one too many times this fall...so it ain't over yet!

An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward.So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it's going to launch you into something great.

Go get her Ryan.  I got a couple of those sentry does running around here.  Looks like a great season.  Jeff Harper
