    First Archery Elk!

    Packed in and retrieved the bull and did some deer hunting. I’m still mind blown by the size of this animal. I didn’t really look at the antlers before the shot because I was so focused on killing him. The story is on Day 1 of my season thread.

    Formerly “teen”bowhunter’s 2019 season

    Didn’t post too many stories from last year so I will try to be better this year. Oregon’s season started on Saturday, August 24 so I headed out for a four day trip to a wilderness area. Started the six hour drive Friday morning and got there around 3 pm. The area is only 6 miles across so I...

    Hung up Turkey, What’s your go to?

    This morning on a new property (that I can only hunt for one week) I had two toms sit in an open field gobbling at my decoys at 101 yards in the same spot for 45 minutes straight. I tried everything I could think of with calling. My inclination is to bring some fishing line and a stake so I can...

    Been hunting a tucked away flock of public land turkeys for three years now and finally killed one. Missed on opening day and fudged another opportunity the first week. This is my first archery bird, first public land bird, first spot and stalk bird and first limb hanger! Had an absolute blast...

    Tuning Question

    Hi all, With field points I’m a good shot, I can make softball sized groups at 100 yards. However, I’m definitely one of the youngsters who never learned how to tune well because none of my family or friends shoot. When I got my newest bow from PSE (warranty), it was paper tuned and shooting...

    My Bow Exploded. Don't know what I should hope for from PSE

    Been shooting the same PSE Xforce Drive for 5 years. Got glasses a month ago and brought it to the store to readjust the peep and draw length to fix my shot. The bow had not been feeling right for a few weeks. We decided my peep needed to move up and to reduce the draw length 1/2". When I drew...

    First bow kill!

    Had my first day of the hunt yesterday down here in NM. The morning started at 4 am with getting everything together and heading up to the mesa. I figured the walk would take about 30 minutes and I'd get there 15-30 minutes before sunrise. As usual, I was wrong. My intended setup was a...

    Antler restoration

    I have an old deadhead I found turkey hunting a few years back that I wanted to restore. I bought everything I needed a year ago but hadn't found the right rainy day. Since a week from now I will probably never live in Ohio again I decided now is the perfect time. Here's tonight's progress...

    Any PSE shooter or bow experts?

    Got a new three pin slider and have been shooting like crazy the last two weeks trying to get it dialed in out to 100 yds. Yesterday I was pounding the bullseye. Today I pull my bow back for the first shot and hear a thud/clunk when I'm about 3/4 of the way back. I then feel like my back wall...

    Teenbowhunter's trail cam pics 2015-2016

    I've been trying to get this up for a couple days but the wifi out here isn't a big fan of moving pictures around. This is all in northern New Mexico on my Uncle's ranch (couple thousand acres). Here's a buck that has me really excited and his crusty old friend. The first pic is what they...

    My New Mexico Mulie

    Just got the buck I shot December 2013 on my uncles ranch back! Pretty happy with how he turned out. There was a huge drought that summer so he grew some great forks but his fronts didn't make it to where they would've in a good year. I'm on the ranch right now working and running seven cams...

    I know a lil sum'n sum'n

    Got my first bow kill tonight! Came to full draw on a young doe but was never offered a good shot and had to let off after a couple minutes. She walked off with another small doe. As soon as they walked off coyotes started howling like crazy 30-50 yds away but I couldn't see them. I took a...

    Morning or Afternoon Hunt Tomorrow?

    Seeing as there is going to be an 18 degree temp drop I definitely want to get out tomorrow, I just can't decide on a morning or afternoon hunt. I found a spot last Sunday on a quick scouting mission. It is a rub line that comes along a somewhat steep oak ridge with a 100+ acre crp field to...

    teenbowhunter's trail cam pics 2014-2015

    Hey guys, I'm new to the site but I figured I'd start my own trail cam thread. I'm 17 and I love hunting, fishing, and fly fishing. I started hunting when I was around ten. I've been bow hunting almost every weekend during Ohio's bow season for the past two years but have yet to let an arrow...
