First time elk hunter advice

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I am in the process of planning an elk hunting trip for next September, I’ve been doing as much research as possible since last November. I really want to do it the right way, and be as prepared as possible for dealing with an entirely new environment. I’ve been bow hunting since I was 12, I’m 26 now, so I’m experienced with bowhunting, but I know that the high country and mountains are a whole different world from the river bottoms and food plots I hunt here in Iowa. I am approaching this process with a TON of RESPECT, when I show up in the mountains with only my bow and a backpack I want to be as prepared as possible.

I’ve been doing a lot of research on gear, and I have a final pack list put together, if any of you want to take a look at it let me know, I’d appreciate any feed back I could get. What I really want to get out of this hunt is a wilderness experience, it’s really important to me that the hunt is DIY on public land, I’m not interested in doing a drop camp or having any guides. I’m mainly looking at Colorado because of all the OTC units, and I’m willing to work to find elk. I’m in good shape, I work out 6 days a week, but the idea of packing a mature elk out on my back 10 miles in sounds unrealistic. My questions are, how far do you really need to hike in (especially in wilderness areas) to get away from the pressure, but not be so far in that packing out an elk seems impossible? If I’m lucky and fortunate enough to get an elk, do you guys have any advice on meat care, the best ways to keep it cool and clean etc.? And if you guys just have any tips or advice in general for a first time elk hunter that might make the overall experience more enjoyable/rewarding I’d love to hear from you, also if there are any books, videos, websites, gear, or anything else that you think would help me out please let me know

I appreciate all the feedback, you guys on AT are AWESOME, thanks in advance! AND GOOD LUCK THIS FALL!!!:smile:

shelene’s first hog hunt/video

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

We had a great hog hunt at ANTLERS AND WINGS HUNTING PLANTATION. Kenny Allison has a great setup for any kind of hunt you want. He is a great guide and they make your hunting experience their number one priority. Located in South Mississippi, he has all kinds of exotics and just about any other animal you can hunt in the woods. I would highly recommend you check out their website. We saw tons of big boars on this hunt, but this was the size I wanted for her first pig. This video shows just the kill shot! The rest of the video will be coming soon…….As always let me know what you think, thanks

first time tuning

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Having some issues tuning my Spyder. Specs are as follows: Spyder 34, 31" draw length, 70 lbs, Ripcord, arrows are Carbon Express Maxima 350s w/ 100 grain tips.

Attempting to paper tune and realized I’m getting vane contact with the ripcord. I put lipstick on the vanes and it shows its making contact with the outside of the inside fork of the rest. When rest is down it lays flat on the shelf. When I’m at full draw the rest starts to go down the first 2 to 3 inches of letting down (which seems correct to me). I tried to move my nocking point up but this didn’t help. I know I need to fix the clearance issue before doing any tuning. I just don’t know where to start to fix the issue.

Thanks

First time paper tuner

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hey guys. I have never paper tuned my bows. I have always had a reputable shop set them up so I have always started with a quick tune, followed by broadhead tune and it has always worked out well.

This time around I bought a new Apache Micro rest and had it installed by a guy who claimed he was a bowtech. When I got it home I noticed the launcher cord was served into the downward cable too high, almost at the X where the cables meet up. The rest was also not timed, it was raising upon drawing the bow back right away. I squared these issues away and went out to shoot today.

I was able to finally get to where I was dead on at 20 yards, and about 1 inch high at 30 and 40 yards when shooting at a 3 inch circle. Being tired I quit and came home.

My nock point seemed higher than I normally see it, I would say the bottom of my Gold Tips were crossing the middle of the berger hole. Def slightly nock high. So I built a paper tuner out of a box and 8X10 sheets of paper. After shooting I realized I had a slightly low/left tear. Per the chat that meant I needed to raise my nock point so I lowered the apache one tic mark. That got me to these shots in the pic.

You guys think I should continue to lower or be happy with these? Where else would you go with it? Back out to the yard to quick tune and then broadhead tune again? I think my vanes might also be hitting the arrow holder that he put on the shelf. THe D-Loop might be too low as I would think the launcher should be level with the shelf when in the down position. Uggg.

Shooting PSE Stinger 3G (IBO 314), Gold tip XT Hunter (8.2gr) cut to 27 inches. Draw Length = 27 inches at 64lbs pull.

Who’s first buck was big or a monster? – with pics

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

.

I was reading the Outdoor News with pictures of young kids who’ve shot some really monster, impressive bucks and it was their first deer. So it made me think about people on Archerytalk who’s first bucks were monsters. This applies to archery, muzzle loader, rifle, or pistol. (I’d like to shoot a deer with an iron sighted pistol like a .44 mag still). So put up what you got.

Who’s first buck was big or a monster?

This was my first archery deer that I recovered so I consider it my first archery deer. (I shot a doe about a week earlier, but didn’t find it for a few weeks after). He’s my biggest buck and although it seems 170" is the mark, I still think he’s a big buck.

He came in at 164 1/2" gross and 156 2/8" net.

First attempt at bare shaft tuning. Please help!

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Like it says this is my first attempt at bare shaft tuning. I have no real idea what I’m looking at. This is from 20 yards. As you can see the bare shaft hits left and slightly low. The bare shaft also points low and left. These movements get progressively worse from 5 out to 20. My guess would be this means the rest needs to come up slightly and to the right slightly. Before I start moving things please help me.
