Archery Hunting Photos

1,094 posts in this topic

Lets see your archery harvest photos here. Please try to clean up the pictures of blood, keep the tongue in the mouth and don't show the gutted side of the animal. No beer or cig included in the photo's please. If one side of the animal is ripped up or has a gaping hole, try to use the other side for a nicer quality photo.

I am hoping to get a crack at this guy from last year. I have seen him twice this summer his mass has gotten much bigger, what do you think he would score from his pics. gle

Got this doe in WI Saturday morning. Had to wait all the way until 7:04am. She was 10 yards broadside & looked up right at me while I was already at full draw. She wasn't sure what I was, so I gradually leaned out a bit from behind the tree trunk to get a clean view of her vitals. Blew right through her with a double lunger & she still went about 200 yards. Max time from shot to pile up 10 seconds.

That was the side I hit her on & the entrance was high in the rib cage. She had bloated some already from her stomach full of alfalfa & I couldn't get her to roll over very well. The skeeters were so bad when we were taking pics & gutting we didn't waste any time.

This is gross, but you guys can probably appreciate the humor in it. She was bloating so hard from that alfalfa I couldn't cut her hide without getting the stomach no matter how I tried. Lets just say it basically popped in my face. That was nasty. We're 200 yards back in the woods with no water with, oh well grin & wear it. Lets just say as soon as I got to a hose I made good use of it on both myself & the deer...

I know the feeling, the same thing happened to me last year.

Next time when gutting one like that, gut them with their back end as much up hill as you can. This will let the guts hang as much forward in the cavity as they can. You should be able to at least get started w/out hitting the stomach. Has worked for me many times. GOOD LUCK

Tried that, it just didn't matter. You'd swear someone was adding air with a compressor the whole time I was opening her up. Usually do that anyway, it's so much easier not having to hold everything back while splitting the pelvis.

I posted this in the Deer forum too.

Nothing fancy, but it was a good opening day public-land hunt in Wisconsin for me. Too bad I had the camera in the wrong setting for every single photo and they all came out a little blurry.

Photos were of the buck at 55 yards eating grass and drinking in the river for a good ten minutes. I grunted three times since he was already meandering away and I had nothing to lose, he came back across to see who I was and I took him at 10 yards. The drag out was horrible, 80F, mosquitoes everywhere, and I was by myself a long way from the car.

    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.
