Default 8 day western semi live hunt!

This hunts been in planning for about a month, kind of a spur of the moment deal. I'm flying into Williston ND where I meeting up with a buddy of mine who lives up there. I have a Montana general deer tag already, I'm bringing my bow so I can hunt OTC ND whitetail and if we get a wild hair we may make the 3 hour drive to SD badlands for a any buck otc archery tag. This hunt will all be on public land and I will try and keep it updated as service allows!

I fly out of Houston at 7 am!

Got the gear almost packed.


Here's my 60 yard target.


My 80 yard group.


The broad heads of choice.


2 bucks killed this week in ND in the area we hunt. Ruts kicking off hard now. It will be spot and stalk hunting mostly. Unless I decide to sit the river in ND at some point.





Going to be looking for a big rutting Muley Buck in Montana and I may break out the boom stick if I see the right one and can't get close with the bow. As for as whitetail in ND I'm not going to be to picky if he's a decent buck and in range I'm letting an arrow fly!

Here's a buck from a few years back.


Stay tuned!

Thanks guys going to sleep in a tad after daylight tomorrow and go glass for whitetail. They are rutting crazy hard here in ND so I plan to try and make a play spot and stalk. If that doesn't pan out we will go rattle the river bottoms.

We opted to sleep in this morning, after our 3 mile pack out last night and some celebratory drinks. Also we didn't have a WT located yet so need to glass. About to get back after them. It doesn't get daylight here until around 730 anyways.

My uncle taught me how to hunt about 30 miles south of Ray AND which is if I remember right, is 36 miles east of Williston. Lot of hiking to hunt that country. Miss him big time
