Archery Hunting Photos

Recommended Posts

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.

Here are pics of the opening morning buck I was able to take. I have had trail pics for about a month but the last week and half I have not seen him but he showed up and I was in the right place at the right time. He ended up scoring unofficial of course 143 gross and around 140 net. He is my biggest bowkill to date. http://www.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?0283931809.jpg http://www.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?c524de30ba.jpg

If you want me to post your pics you can send them to huntnfishmn at yahoo. Otherwise, if you go to the photosharing forum there is a post that will explain the process of posting pictures.

Congrats on the buck. It was slow for me this evening. Only squirrels and chipmunks, but it was nice to get out again.

Bigbucks, I didn't bother to take any after photos. I was more concerned with getting him processed asap due to the heat.

Donbo, my dad is being lazy about hunting so far. He is watching some moving through the back yard this year. Elk hunting this coming weekend, he isn't ready...

      I can't figure  out how enough heat would form to cause a problem. What part could be getting hot?  That sort of makes sense but then it will start and quit again quite quickly.  I don't  know what engine it has and that's a problem with it.  Finding the parts is troublesome even with Jack's Small Engine.
    • smurfy
      thats the engine on the one i have.
    • delcecchi
      The not restarting for hours....   Could it possibly be an ignition thing where as it gets hot it stops providing spark and has to cool all the way down to start again?     That's the only thing besides flooding I can think of.   Typically, isn't the spark on small engines produced by magnets on the flywheel going by a coil?    So when it quits and won't restart, is it getting spark?      And is the plug wet when it quits?        Has it got the Honda motor or something else?

      That's odd Tom, I have a power washer from northern tool also. Not sure which one but only issues I've had with mine is I had to replace both tires???🙄🙄
    • Tom7227
      Full throttle before I even start to spray.  When trying to restart it pulls easy and I keep the wand open to assure it doesn't get backed up.  I agree it has to be a fuel issue.  But the tank to engine line is a straight shot except for the fuel shut off valve.  When I was replacing the carb the fuel would run out of the fuel line quite a bit until I remembered to shut off the fuel line.   The gas has been brand new non-oxy every time I have tried it.

      When you try to restart it does it pull easy or hard?   When mine has water pressure built up, it pulls hard to start.  I trigger the wand to release the pressure so it starts easier.   Maybe the hours for yours is due to pressure that needs to bleed off?  Hard to tell not being there.     I can kill mine at low throttle just by spraying.  Are you running yours at a high throttle position?  Again, hard to tell without hearing the RPMs of the engine.   Otherwise for fuel, it could be a blockage or venting issue anywhere in the system. If there wasn’t a change in performance with the change of carburetor, the carburetor is probably not the issue.  If it sat with old gas for a while something could be varnished up and the engine starves for gas until it quits.  Taking hours to get enough fuel flowing again to run seems odd if you actually get to run it hard enough to spray for even a few minutes.   Hearing the way it behaves would help a lot for me.   I’ve had pressure washers that you’re not supposed to let idle for extended time without spraying and others like my current one that bypass just fine while it’s running.  I’m just wondering if your killing it on high pressure AND low idle.  Mine will die every time that way.
    • Tom7227
      It is a Powerhorse, the northern tool house brand.  It dies while I am spraying.  If I replaced the carb what more fuel issues could there be?  The carb replacement took about 5 minutes and was extremely simple.

      I retired 2½ years ago.  My wife finally agreed to move up north after she retires the end of 2021.  When she retires there is nothing that would keep us in the cities.  Blaine has been very peaceful over these turbulent times, but I have a lot of buckshot for my three 12ga shotguns just to be safe.  Anywhere from Barnum to Soudan would be fine for us (easy day trip to Vermilion).  Would go as far west as Grand Rapids.  Would love to live on Vermilion but the prices are just too high now.  Best of luck to you.
    • smurfy
      How far north?????🤔😅
    • leech~~
      Wife just retired. I retire next May. Hope to follow you north before the next round of riots and lotting in Brooklyn Center! 👍
