Default Live exotic hunt at Circle M Ranch

Rise and shine boys and girls. Time to sling some arrows. Headed back to Circle M Ranch this morning for a blackbuck, a black Hawaiian ram, and axis doe and hopefully an axis buck. All bow and arrow. This is my first “live hunt” so bear with me. Should be there around 9:30am ish. Gotta send mamma and the turds off to school first.

took my kids there to kill a ram with a rifle. Blackbuck was in the pasture with them. would have been easy with a rifle, but you are right... will be hard to spot and stalk in the open...good luck. my son ask all the time if he can go back and kill a blackbuck!

425 acres I believe is what he said.

So the blackbuck took 2 arrows, one at 62 yds and the second at 55 yds. The ram was hard quartering away and was a perfect shot at 38 yds. He took 6 steps and was done. Axis was 29 yds and perfect broadside shot. Went 25 yds and piled up. All 3 happened so dang fast neither one of us could belive it. Anyway, another amazing day and got everything home so I can post some pics now. I WILL BE going back!!!

I would. He’s got some good animals. You can do the easy rifle hunts over feeders or make it harder like I did and do all spot and stalk (except my axis, he was from a bow blind). None of his animals like people, unless they’re on his side by side with a bag of corn.

No sir, I don't believe. It's been family owned for a long time he said. Maybe 5 miles NE of Tyler.

I also forgot to mention, this carnage was done by chinese rage hypodermics 2.3" cut. $15 for a 12 pack off Amazon. And yes I did tons of research before buying and lots of tests at home before this hunt. The opened every single time on empty and full milk jugs, cardboard, and a few more thin skinned things. Evidently worked on these animals too.

Nice pickup. I bought a ton of the same broadheads after testing them too. Congrats on a haul of animals!
