    I hunt elk and deer with a bow and punch paper and smaller critters with my rifles.

    You bet, up close and personal. Since I was 12, started with a Bear recurve.
    Have a PSE Firestorm for meat and a BlackWidow recurve for pure challange.

    Yep, whitetails. Wish there were more big game critters around here, as I'd like to put an arrow in something else other than deer. There are feral hogs in the southern part of the state that require no special permits...just shoot 'em. However, that's 3 1/2 hours from here.

    This year will be the first year in the last fifteen that I am splitting the hunting
    season with the rifle. I bought a LDH the first of the year, I hope to have it ready to go for Elk this fall.

    The Bow stays ready and I pound the cedar bales out back, every week
    for a couple of hours.

    First time Bow Elk hunters, unless you are going on a guided hunt, It would be
    to your benefit to scout the hunting area first and see if you have Elk to hunt.
    In the west, with the on rush of the wolf westward, the Elk herds have been pushed to other areas. Many herds have been broken up into smaller groups
    making them harder to find. Last year they were not responding to calls until
    later in the season.

    The above is why we are switching to Long Distance Shooters for this
    coming Elk season. Even so, I plan on doing 2 or 3 scouting trips to be
    sure of at least a quick look.

    Deer season will find us with bow in hand.

    A word on Feral hogs, be sure to get the Private property owners permission to hunt and thank him after your hunt.

    A hand held bow is a bow,is a bow, is a bow. Bows don't shoot themselves,
    you need practice , practice, practice.


    keep them in the middle and good luck
