Congrats on piling up on some critters Bisch

I read some where that older men should probably have more fiber in thier diet Corey. That harvest should do the trick. (Hope you had a good time regardless)

Congrats Randy! Looking forward to hearing the story.

And yeah I am jealous. I'm still waiting to just get away from the house. That's it inside that little levy I built a few yrs ago. At least it's dry inside.

Took him at 20 yards at the RLD ranch she was quartering away hard hit a little farther back than I wanted but got the femoral and of side lung. Left a nasty blood trail with the magnus and gold tip combo. Last pic is a view back at the "stump" blind

Samantha didn't leave a blood trail for the dog to follow on this one so we had to drag him a ways. But nothing better than heart shot on a pig and dead 15 yards from the stand.

Thanks everyone for the compliments. No doubt, Africa was everything Bisch had been saying it was. I'm certainly hooked!
I expect to be a much better hunter here this year after all the time spent trying to draw on those string jumpers over there.
Congrats everybody on the kills!

Put me down for a female Aoudad.
Courtney. Brought me a lacy pup to try out and we set out hoping for a pig to track.
A herd of Aoudad came in and one was in bad shape.
You could see every bone in her body.
The other sheep would not let her eat and she just hung back from the rest of them.

I decided to take her out if she gave me a shot.
They hung around for over an hour but the sick one never came within 50 yards of me unless she was running from the other sheep.


I had pretty much given up on her when I looked out one of the side windows and she was headed down a trail that would take her within 30 yards of me.

I quickly shut the front window to keep out the light and opened the side one.

She stopped right where I needed her to and the arrow was away within a split second.
It arched up over her back and dropped into her right above her elbow.

She ran a quick 60 yards before flipping over.

A little shorter than we had hoped for our blood trail but the 1-7/8' GK head gashed her open.

I forgot to take a picture of myself with her but did get one with the puppies

Semi- retired
We still use here on the tough tracks but if she has a run down and catch deal, she is pretty much used up for the weekend.
Her joints have her stove up the next day so im working on some young dogs to do the running for us.
Me and Bagley will just stroll along behind them
