Speaking of videos and bow hunting, check out this video.

This guys name is Tim Wells. He and his buddies shoot everything from frogs to grizzly bears. Shoots a compound bow unaided, traditional release.

Great footage.

I already hunt hogs in west OK w/ my pitbulls.

Looks something like this with Plotts as baydogs and pits as catch dogs step in with a knife fun and dangerous at once like fishing sharks in the water.

Chiefnj: The doe was pretty well messed up/ate up, but I could tell that I had hit her high and back a bit...as for the broadheads, well thats where I was a bit irritated. I ordered some new broadheads from Cabela's but they were here for opening day so I borrowed an older but brand new broadhead from a friend...I DID take the time to sight my bow in using this broadhead, not sure what kind it was...maybe a "twister"...? I do know that if I had made a bit better shot it would not have mattered what kind of broadhead I used. I finally got my new broadheads yesterday, Im using the Magnus Stinger four blade 100gr, will report back on how THIS one works. lol By the way, I was sighting my bow in today and these were the best flying broadheads that I have ever tried/seen, on the package it says that they should fly as well or better than even mechanical broadheads...so far so good.

Alright...now I'm jealous, or bent....not sure which.

15 year old kid, on a youth season hunt with muzzle loader kills a 38 point buck that is scoring over 300 on BC.....supposedly a new record.

I wonder if this deer could be the Buck in Larry Zach's "Old Rivals".....I know pics of one of those bucks(as well as a barn) came from very very close to where this deer was killed.

Is ther a picture of the buck on that Link, I have never seen a 38 point buck.

no....the rack in the link is this buck, from a previous year. The Article says that the dad is "negotiating" with magazines and stuff to get exclusive pics and the story of the kids lottery jackpot. They're trying to cash in...and I don't blame them.

I saw a 35 point stag buck at a hunting ranch close to where I grew up...they sold it to some ranch in Pennsylvania last year I think.

I will more likely than not, never see anything close to this in my lifetime. Its not common to see a 10-12 point close enough to shoot. A BC 140-150 class deer is a thing to be very proud of....and this kid kills a 330class.

He's ruined. should stop hunting now.

I don't even think it is THE rack, just a previous rack shed by the same deer. The article says they are shopping photos of THE rack to different magazines to see who will pay the highest. It's probably a smart thing to do. Me, I'd be so damn happy, I'd be posting my picture everywhere.

I can't believe he went and hacked the antlers off. I think I would have mounted that whole damn deer...uh, I mean had it stuffed...er, taxidermied.

Iowanian 02:09 PM 10-10-2003
Ruk...
those are sheds from a previous year.

I have no doubt that the deer will be mounted......probably sell replicas of the antlers for mounts for Cabela's, Bass Pro etc...

Gotcha! :-)
I was wondering how they could even measure B & C without the head.
I was checking in a deer one time and there was a guy with a hacksaw cutting through one of the nicest racks I've ever seen in my life. I stood there watching :-) :-)

I posted earlier about a guy here in Minnesota who is having a deer scored right now that is also a possible worlds record. A friend has the picture and has yet to forward it to me, when he does I'll post it. It was shot about 20 miles from my house. This one was killed with a bow.

He too is negotiating who gets to print his picture and stuff. They will make money off of everyone from the weapon manufacture to the boots they had on. And they should too.

I'll post up a pic of it when I get it.

Cabelas pays big bucks (pun intended) for the real thing. I've heard they are offering the guy here in MN, 250K for the real one. I'd tell 'em to get stuffed (pun intended). He'll make that much off showing it at state fairs every year.

Hey Iowanian
Don't know about training for upland birds with a retreiver, Ive run pointers for years, most have just taken to it without much training. I'm now training my lab puppy on retreiving from the pond that's going very well, not much of a duck hunter but shes going to be a good one!
Far as the lab goes get you some quail or chukar and plant them. I would work on her holding the point if it was me, seems like most labs won't hold a point long. There more of a point and flush which is ok if your in gun range. I prefer pointers for that stuff as most of them will hold a point all afternoon if they have to, which is good cause there usually 200 yards in front of me...hehe. Good luck let us know how it turns out.
