We have all heard 10% of hunters harvest 90% of the game. It seems to be true as we see the same guys being successful year after year. The odds of this happening on luck are astronomical so what is the secret? While I don’t think it’s just one thing there are certain traits, tendencies and a certain tenacity the majority of these ten percenters po...

Guest Author: Thomas Austin As the bull’s body was no longer obscured by the grass I quickly judged the distance and chose a pin I drew back my bow and settled in on his vitals as he continued to walk towards to calls of my hunting partner as he reached the highest point in the meadow from which he should have been able to see the cow to which he w...

Guest Author: Alex Kurz Ryan and I whispered to one another as the bull walked in, “This is gonna happen”.  As the bull crested the final null where we knew Alex could see him, time stood still.  The bull took a few final steps toward the spring, and put his head down to drink perfectly broadside.  Alex released his arrow and made a perfect double ...

Guest Author: Lindsay McQuaid  After the shot, I heard the bull break a few branches, but didn’t think he went very far. About two minutes later I heard breaking of branches one more time.

Guest Author:  Russ Carlson It was a foggy Saturday morning, September 9th, 2017. Walking in the dark, I was hoping to get to my spot ahead of where the deer tend to cross on my favorite ridge. I found about six nice deer as the sun came up that were on the wrong side of the fence. I watched them for a while and decided to keep moving. About 800 ya...

Guest Author: Marty Hamel My brother, Mike, and I went on our first DIY archery elk hunt in Colorado in September of 2009. It was an amazing experience and one that ignited a desire to continue to hunt elk in the mountains. Since that hunt, life happened, and things got busy. Both of us started families, bought houses and had career changes or adva...
