Re: Tell us about your 2010 bow hunt results!

I'm not a hunter but my friend is very good with the bow. This year he make one world record in Benin. And I was there to take video on him. Here you can see some videos from another hunting in Mozambique. YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

Re: Tell us about your 2010 bow hunt results!

I harvested a nice 135'' 9 pointer in Ohio, on nov 18th, my second 9 ptr this year, one in PA, one in Oh.
both almost the exact same size!!
both shot with a X bow, both at less than 8 yards away when shot.
one ran 400 yrds, and one only went 100 yrds! both double lunged !

Re: Tell us about your 2010 bow hunt results!

I haven't the slightest idea how to put a picture on this thing, but I had plenty of luck this year. I harvested a buck that grosses 166 2/8, he'll likely net in the top five in PA for typical bucks harvested with a bow. One week later I sat with my mother who harvested a mature doe, her first bow kill. I'm still not quite sure which I was more excited about. I've always been an advocate of it is the experience not the harvest that makes a hunt/hunter great.

Re: Tell us about your 2010 bow hunt results!

A two hour stalk on a antelope got me a 60 yard shot, ran 50 yards and pilled up at full sprint nothing more satisfying than taking the shot and watching the animal go down. Nothing kills me more than having to wait to go track or even tracking. Always scared I won't find the animal. Early season elk hunting was tough in colorado, passed on cows and only saw a few bulls. Always next year!

Re: Tell us about your 2010 bow hunt results!

Oct 4th I shot a doe, a nice start to my archery hunting season. (always nice to get the first one under the belt early in the season)

I decided this year to buy a new bow and I sold my Matthews Switchback XT and bought a totally blacked out Matthews Z7...holy crap!! I love that bow..that thing is scary quiet and fast zinging my 417 grain arrows at 309 fps.

Also this year I am shooting Slicktricks for my first time and have to say I'm quite impressed...I'll be sticking with them for a while.

Anyway my doe I shot at 18 yds.


Gotta love that X through the lungs.


I have always struggled to kill a buck that scores better than 135", now I do have one that would score 141" but he has a busted eyeguard making him score less than my 135" mark..anyway I blew that away just yesterday.

I found a bucks little honeyhole that had about 8-9 scrapes and lotsa rubs, some about the size of my calf in a 25 yd circle in a thicket near a field edge...it was his home.

The previuos night it rained overnight and I knew this buck would be coming around during the day to freshen up his scrapes after the rain quit so I sat on the downwind side of his home.

At this time I wasnt sure just how big he was but knew he was worth a look at least by the size of those rubs.

Sure enough about 10:10 am he comes strolling through freshening up his scrapes and making new rubs.

I saw he was a shooter and decided I was going to shoot him given the chance.

Well he did 24 yds perfectly broadside...I had to stop him twice the first time his vitals were behind a small sapling and I didnt want to risk that shot.

The next time he stops hes in the clear, I release the arrow and to my suprise I hit him squarely in the shoulder...(surely didnt intend to) he spun and ran and I was shocked! how did I do that??!! (in replaying it all in my memory I remember thinking I hit my sleeve on my jacket...one I have never worn before) anyway he had about 10-11 inches of arrow stuck in him and I figured that should be good enough to do the trick.

I gave him exactly 1 hour and got down and started the tracking job....not much blood but enough to track.

I found the arrow about 5 yds from where I hit him snapped in half and knew the other half was still in him.

I found him 50 yds from where I shot him!!!

I was pumped!! I finally beat my 135" mark!

I took all the measurements got on the B&C website and plugged in the #"s

It kicked back 155 5/8 nontyp and 140 7/8 typ.

Definately my biggest!! and with my bow no less!
