No blood, I think she gets out the 30-30 when she gets serious about killing a deer.

Yes Eric

I shot with them. See them at 3D. Just wanted to know if they hunt with selfbow?

Well, deer season in Tenn is complete. Never did take number seven with a HedgeHunter. So, I guess I still have a goal in hunting here at home anyway. Was a fantastic season. Pappy and I were discussing the season and such. For a warm early season then a quick early cold snap. Was a terrific season with highs and lows. I did not hunt as many days as I do normally, that said , I had enormous success over all. Wish I had found that first buck that day and not the following morning. Still a great selfbow harvest. One I will not forget.

Time for hogs in the wrap around season or maybe I go hunt some Axis or Ram in Texas on my favorite Army NG Post. Fair chase, no fences. Since I'm headed that way might as well. Not enough time in the year it seems.

I hope you SB hunters and others enjoyed Whitetail season with me.


Good hunting

16 Jan 20

OK so it may get cold here in a few days. So, the next hunting will be myself out with a selfbow with judos and a BH looking for sheds. Here where the weather turns from real warm to cold the whitetails antlers will pop off. Not sure why but its true.

So, a horn hunt is in order soon.

Good Hunting

Big medicine is complete. 51@27 about 16yr old stave outta a 60-70 yr old tree. Elk rig for next season. Shoots 650 POc hard. Shot a frozen block target at 20yds with BH and had 10 penetrAtion. Should make a great meat shooter.

The selfbow finals Hunters men from 2019 made to the IBO Flyer for 2020.

Some hope for us Selfbows guys yet!

The goat target on upper left with all the arrows in it. Here's the deal on that.

Levy Bryant runs this shoot "last man standing" at 2019 IBO Trad Worlds. Targets are out in open, unknown distance. On that goat. . . . I saw him walk out and do something at the butt of animal. I had heard in other shoots he would put a mark and if you got a hit you'd win $. Anywho's, I could not see anything but I shot for the rump and as you can see there were still lots of folks still in shoot. You had to hit 8 ring to keep going in the event or buy your way back in. Well, I was shooting SB and this was a 27yd shot or so. I shot for rump. They pulled all those arrows and Levy was holding my wood shaft and says "whose Arrow is this"? I replied  "Mine" and he handed me $150 cash. I gave him $20 to stay in competition.

I was last Selfbow Standing.

ABout sharing the hunt and piling up burger for brats I guess.


It's wrap around season now. The Hunt never ends, does it?. We hunt for bow wood, squirrels, mushrooms, peace of mind, etc, etc. Hogs are up next.

Thinking of carrying on my selfbow to Hawaii soon as well. State deer bow area opens Feb 1st. Killing a Axis in the Mts of Lanaii would be the crown jewel of selfbow hunting. I have only killed them with a wheel bow and came very close with recurve several times. To many eye's and noses and killer hunt ending  thermal wind drifts. That was in in 19-forgotton now. Love to back with some moccasins, charcol camo, lion cloth and a selfbow. Some big bucks there but crazy steep and lava rock slice you up like a cheese grater.

Yep, I guess the thread will keep on dripping on.

Was a tuff day for me yesterday. Thought I would get up early and go out after Coyotes. Great morning. 33 degrees with almost no wind. I was lucky by sticking it an extra 15min or so and was able to take one out at long range. That's the 16th taken off this property that parallels where ai hunt between to party's of hunters. Have to get this management done here as there are just way to many yotes here.

Good thing was I saw 16 good healthy deer with plenty young deer. Two bucks were still actively chasing doe as well with hard horn. Which surprised me a bit. Also, saw a woodcock fly by a daybreak and some Canada's go by.

Good Hunting

Well,

Feb is usually Hog hunting for me but had to put it off for a bit. Did get 800 plus brats made over 3 days of working on them. Finished up mine and Mark B's yesterday. A small run of 20lbs or so. In that amount it goes very fast. Think we did about 180-190lbs  for Pappy/Beau  and myself, 90lbs apiece.
Was good because we some colder weather and it was a good time to get it all done.
Think Greg has a purty good pile to get done as of yet as well.

Few more days and will be moving hunting grounds to a more southern location. Least I will have Cajun deer Brats in my Iron skillet with my breakfast eggs!

Went down and helped Greg B prep 65lbs of deer for Brats. He will stuff them Monday. The lng prep and mix part is complete.

Guess the work from the hunt seaon continues. We did throw a few patties un the fry pan to test a 10lb mix. They were outstanding. Greg will have fine eating.

This bow went to Gil 50@27.  Tillered 1/4" positive on lower limb and FD about the same maybe 3/8ths. Hunting weight bow.  Limbs really work welll together. I burnished the heck outta this one and then hand rubbed oil in. He is shooting it in some more before I re-weigh and put the HH stamp on it.

Be a Killah I think.
