Oh yea...... I slung an arrow at a wolf sneaking thru the bush at 34 yds. Shot right under his belly....he never knew an arrow was launched. Talk about exciting to have even the off chance opportunity at a wolf!!! That's my nock glowing.

We had two ozonics and Dead Down Wind spray. A bears nose is 7x more sensitive than a bloodhounds thus not much you can do if wind ain't right.

I had a 3 year wait as Stan only takes 4 bowhunters per year on this salmon creek bowhunt.* All his trips are BOWHUNTERS only and a huge supporter of P&Y and Alaskan Bowhunters Association. Multiple of his bowhunters have Top 10 animals. I even hope to deaux his moose bowhunt sooner than later.
