Just finished a bow hunt with a client from the US

 

He used a Mission Rally bow set at 65lbs shooting Easton 400's arrows tipped with 100grn Thunderhead broadheads. He shot 4 trophies with the bow and also hunted a Good Reedbuck with the rifle. this was a 5 day hunt he was on.

Impeccable timing. :laugh:

 

Great stuff! Got to say, hunting in Africa has never really appealed to me (even if I could afford it) but love reading/seeing reports of folks that do.

 

More posts!!!

I really would love to hunt with a Bow.

 

The field craft involved would make it worthwhile.

:yes:

 

But not so much the skill, just using one of the ancient hunting arts (albeit in it's modern high tech form) would be a very satisfying feeling to me as a hunter.

 

I still think, in absence of legally being able to stalk a roe or red in English woodland, North America would be the place I'd want to bow hunt. Hell, if I could ever manage to leave the quintessential British hunting sports behind for another life, it'd be North America hunting with bow, hounds and a handfull of traps, hunting the way my ancestors did thousands of years ago.

If you used the rest of the site you'd realise that bow hunting has created a bit of controversy recently. I don't think Socks' or Remmys comments on this thread were intended to be interpreted as anti bowhunting. More anticipation of the hornets nest it could stir up. :thumbs:

Fukc walking around North America with just a bow when there are grizzlies running around ... I had a .303 in my hand and I still. Wasn't happy :laugh: ..........
