Manitoba with a Matthews HALON32 bow.
A few years ago, I decided to take
up bow hunting. One of the
first steps was to buy some camouflage clothing. I went to a large
hunting outlet with a friend. He wasn't a hunter, but had been in the
army. We talked about camo on the way there. As we entered the store,
he looked over the camo. "This stuff won't work." he said. . .

John I thought you might like a picture of the buck i
shot last night with the bow i Won. I took this 13pt. Buck On halloween
night in the last minutes of the day. He came out into a freshly
harvested soy bean field and started to chase does and a smaller buck.
I grunted to him and he came running over and i took a 45yd shot and
clipped a vein by the heart. he ran about 150yds and went down just out
side the field

Who Shot the Buck?
There are a
few guys out hunting one day. One
of them happens to be a preacher. They all go to their separate stands
in the morning, when they meet back up later that morning, they are all
standing around talking when a very big buck comes out. They all pick
up their rifles and start shooting. The buck drops and they all
immediately start to stake claim. They all sit there and argue for a
few minutes and then the game warden pulls up and asks what all the
yelling is about. The three hunters tell the game warden the story and
he decides that he will go down and see who shot it. He goes down,
studies for a few minutes and when he returns, he announces that the
preacher is the one that shot the deer. The other two hunters said,
well how can you be so sure? The game warden says simple, the bullet
went in one ear and right out the other. It has to be the preacher's.

Summer Season Saturday, I put the
peep in my new Matthews Switchback XT (see below). The first draw (on
only a 60#) was pretty stiff. "Time to start shootin, I gotta get in
shape!" I said to myself. My first shot went through both sides of the
milk crate my target was sitting on. Man, those bows are powerful! But
after a few shots she was almost silently pounding down arrows beyond
the needs of bowhunting. Welcome back everyone. Get those bows ready...

Hunters A man and his friend
were enjoying deer hunting season in rural Arkansas near a blacktop highway. A
huge buck walked by and the hunter drew his bow
and took careful aim.
Before he could release
his arrow, his friend pointed at a funeral
procession passing on the road below their stand.
The hunter slowly let off the pressure on his bow, took off his hat,
bowed his head and closed his eyes in prayer.
His friend was amazed.
"Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching
thing I have ever seen. You are the kindest man I have ever known."
The hunter shrugged.
"Yeah, well, we were married for 35 years."
Last night, this cute little 6pt
walked in from the south. I was setup perfectly except that he went
around the wrong side of my tree. Luckily I'd thought about this and
cut a shooting lane when I climbed in. As he walked through to check a
scrape that I'd freshened (see "Peein" on the Bowhunting Board) I drew
back and anchored my pin on his chest. Always practice catch and
release... and you'll be ready when big brother walks in.
as he went
into the woods out of sight this
8 pointer appeared....
Nugent on A Deer's
these deer think when they see you
coming?" I ask him. "Here comes the nice guy who puts out our dinner?
Or, there's the man that shot my brother?"
think they're capable of either of
those thoughts, you Limey asshole. They're only interested in three
things: the best place to eat, having sex and how quickly they can run
away. Much like the French."
Invisible Buck What a buck and doe
combination. If you can't see the buck, wait a Few minutes and concentrate on the left
side of the photo. (The buck Scored
184 5/8 Boone & Crockett Points; for anyone who cares). I've been
told that Miss Bowman, 28, single, lives in San Antonio and her dad
owns the Bowman Ranch; all 8,000 acres, located 15 miles east of
Carrizo Springs. Again, the buck is on the left.
