Arctic caribou hunt in 22 below zero feirenhight temps (Not with a bow) #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Although this wasnt with a bow. This weekend me and a buddy went out to brave the freezing temperatures to try to get a caribou in the 4 day winter hunt. *After about 40 miles on a snow machine and half. Mile through waste deep snow we found ourselves surrounded by about 5 thousand caribou. *When we had around 400 or 500 within 300 yards we decided to take the 2 that were closes which was a nice bull who already lost his horns and a great eating cow. *The temp was 22 below zero and that was the fastest gut job I have ever done. *Once that was done and stopped trying to dry our hands and thaw them put to prevent frost bite we realized the work really just started as now we had to stay 2 caribou back 600 yards through snow that would go from hard pack and only 6 inches deep to a sudden drop off that was waste deep. *The bull weighed 376 pounds and the cow was 173. *I am turning the bull into a rug as the winter coat is the best time to do it even though the hair is hollow. *The measurements are when I cut just below the head 6ft 3 from neck until tail and 4ft wide. Even though there is no big horns so some wouldn’t consider them a trophy just the hunt was a trophy to both of us plus 200 pounds of meat is great too.

We also may have saved 2 guys log s we were coming out after dark 2 guys came running out of an old gold mining cabin asking for a ride back to their truck as their snow machine broke down. *I couldn’t imagine spending the nig by out there in those temps only to walk 15 miles back the next day.

When has an “out of your comfort zone” hunt worked out for you? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I’ve decided I need to take some calculated risks this coming season. Hunting private land with set stand locations can lead to complacency and even a little laziness. I will say there isn’t a ton of large tracts of private land available within a reasonable distance. I certainly don’t want to blow out some of the few really nice pieces of private ground I’ve got. However, based in some spring scouting, I’ve got a few areas I need to push it a little and hunt outside my traditional "comfort zone".

Up way earlier, in way deeper, pushing closer to an area I’ve traditionally steered clear from.

I had pm’d Dan Infalt on Hunting Beast about a couple of his tactics. His response was kind of his mantra. He takes calculated risks and goes for it. If he pushes a mature buck out of the area it’s part of the game. On to the next spot. Go big or go home.

You have any memorable hunts where you stepped out away from your go to spots or tactics and had a good outcome?

Thanks

Dooped. Elk hunt gone wrong. #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

My dude already posted his story in a post on here, but I want to make sure everyone has a chance to see this, so they don’t draw a tag of a lifetime and get dooped like we did. So here is my story.

All American Outfitters and Guide Service is the name of the company. You ever get a chance to hunt with this guy. PASS ON THAT!

After 4 short years of trying to get an elk tag for one of the best units in the world, we finally drew a New Mexico 16A elk tag. To say I was excited would be an understatement. I trained like no other for this hunt. Losing 30 pounds and was in the best shape of my life.We drove 20 hours to our guides and saw all kinds of elk just as we were getting in the area. We meet our guide Brandon and he showed us where we were staying and was telling us all the right things. Everything else went down hill from there. He told us we would be sitting on watering holes and wallows. Thats how you hunt them this time of year he says. I thought to myself I didn’t train to sit in a blind, but if that up my odds of sticking a giant Gila bull I’ll do anything. We drove the trailer with the quads out to an area that was on our unit and close to where we would be hunting, that was an hour away on a pretty crappy gravel road. From there we went back to the bunk house and prepped for the next day. 3 AM we get up and finished loading and getting ready. 4 AM we left the bunk house and drove that hour to our quads. We didn’t know if we were even going the right way because Brandon pulled out of the drive and was gone. Anyways we made it out there and then drove the quads 45 minutes to the spot where Brandon was going to have Adam sit. The sun was just coming up when we got there, perfect! Other then the fact that there was already another hunter in the area. Brandon had Adam hunt it anyways. Then we went to my spot, a wallow, and just as I was getting to the blind i heard a bull bugling!!! As soon as I settled into the double bull he shut up! I didn’t see anything until last light and that was a young 260 class bull at 70 yards. The night before Brandon was saying don’t shoot that little 300 class bulls wait for the 350/400 class. So I didn’t even try, not that I really had a shot because I only saw him for a few seconds. Dark came, Brandon met me at my quad and we picked Adam up and then made the 35 min quad ride back to the truck. We finally got back to the bunk house just before 11 PM. Ate dinner and went to bed.
We did that for the next 7 days. About every other day I saw elk, but never had a shot at any bulls and never saw anything bigger then that 260 6×6 I saw on the first day. I had so much more luck then Adam. He never saw anything, after 3 days we convinced Brandon to take Adam and go after the elk. They did that for an hour and still never heard or seen anything. Walking back to the quads they bumped a couple of elk that were about 200 yards away. Brandon tells him, "Well at least you didn’t get skunked." Then put him back in the same blind where he didn’t see anything. The next day we finally talked him to moving Adam. I was in a spot that I felt could get it done so I wasn’t to worried about moving. We both rather be chasing them. Adams brakes went out on his quad the 2nd day and the third day he got a flat as they took off, Brandon didn’t come back and find him for an hour and a half. After Brandon moved Adam all he saw were other hunters.

We never shot anything and Adam never saw anything. If you would have told us we would go to the Gila and never get a shot at a bull I would have have thought you were crazy. We feel that Brandon went out to the water hole and the wallow the day before we got there and pooped up a couple of double bulls in the middle of no where and never brushed them in or anything. He said the elk don’t mind them. We both brushed them in, but still didn’t feel to confident.

On top of all that we had hub on the trailer seize up on the way home. Mydon’t give a poop attitude decided to bolt the tire back on and drive it slowly to town, where we found a little shop, the owner stopped what he was doing and help us get the old hub off. Then we found a farm store that had trailer parts. Took a couple trips, but we found the right parts. Then ole boy helped put it back together. Then after 4 hours of helping us only wanted 70 bucks. We gave him more than double and he barely took it!

168 hrs since September 1, In that time I spent 97 hours in the blind, 28 hours driving, 24.5 hours sleeping, and 14 hours of shower and prepping for the next day. That only left 4.5 hours to eat dinner and get to know our guide.

Long story short, we got dooped by a junk @$ $ guide. Semi guided at best. If you ever get the chance to hunt the Gila don’t waste your time with Brandon Gaudelli owner of All American Outfitters and Guide Service.

Heres a few pix of my week.

Anyone here Hunt Zone D5 in Ca? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

My wife and I just bought a cabin in blue lake springs in Arnold and was curious if anyone hunts up here and actually sees bucks? I always get two Azone tags but might start getting an AO Tag to hunt up here as well. I know there is tons of public land and my guess during archery the Bucks would be at a higher elevation?

Ontario Bear Hunt #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Thanks to a fellow AT member and a great guy, my dad and I are fortunate to be in Ontario for the week bear hunting. We arrive Saturday afternoon and our hunt started yesterday. It’s a semi guided hunt. The guide took us to the stands he selected for us to hunt and had started baiting before we arrived. I had this bear around me for about 30 minutes, but chose to pass and hold out for something bigger. My dad did not see any bear last night. We are strictly hunting afternoons at the guidance of the outfitter. It is very remote here, but beautiful as well. We did see 2 moose on our drive back to camp last night. I could get used to this bear hunting with a bow :) . I will try to keep updates coming, but the Wi-Fi is spotty at best.

What do you hunt deer with more often – a stand or a blind? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I am a new bow hunter, and due to surgery I had to hunt from blinds all season.

I was able to buy both a climber and a hang on for next season, and will leave both of my blinds where they are.

Wha do you deer hunt from more often? A ladderstand, climber, hang on, or from a blind?
