How Predators Effect Deer Population
Great article by Dr. Grant Woods - makes you think. Hunting coyotes on a full moon in January was one of the most fun hunts I've had. Unfortunately, it was a lot harder to take anything down that we'd thought. John <><

Informal Camo Study

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. . . . read more

Matthews' NEW

Goza Wins Fifth Buckmasters Top Bow Championship Title

The Buckmasters Top Bow Indoor World Championship was held August 19 – 21 in Montgomery Alabama. This tournament is unlike any other. The competitors stand on an elevated stand and targets pop up at unknown yardages. The target will only stay up for a short amount of time. The archer needs to find the target, figure of the yardage and hit a 6” by 6” pad on the vital area of the target. Some of the targets even run on a track and the archers have to hit the moving target.

All four finalists shot Matthews bows.

In Case You Wonder if We REALLY give bows Away!

Hey 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.

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. From Josh Wilson in SC

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... season opens in less than two months! John <><

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."

A Tribute to FISHING!
For those of you who's wives (etc.) don't like hunting (as much as above)... check this out.

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.

Ted Nugent on A Deer's Last Thoughts

"What do 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?"

"I don't 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."

From a May 2006 interview conducted by a British journalist Robert Chalmers for The Independent on Sunday, the expanded Sunday version of the UK newspaper The Independent:

How Gun Control "Worked" in Jamaica
Today, Jamaica has one of the world's highest murder rates...
"The Jamaican government decided that the only solution to this volatile situation was to declare martial law overnight, and to demand that all guns and bullets owned by anyone but the police and the military be turned into the police within 24 hours..."

Bow Hunting Game
Since the season is over, this will sharpen your aim. Hold the right click to draw. Line up with the arrow not the pins. If you know of other games, drop me a line.

The 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.
