THE STIFFMEISTER, October 18, 2016 in Big Game Hunting
For me, bow hunting is the ultimate challenge, if you can take a large animal with a bow, unguided on a self hunt, there isnt a bigger achievement in hunting , in my opinion especially with a trad bow.
Such a shame its illegal here,especially with our archery history.from medieval times right up to ww2.
People from other bowhunting countries cant understand how it can be illegal here
right up to ww2.
right up to ww2.
There was an American archer who took a bow with him to france,i think it was WW1 but he is documented as killing 2 germans with it.
heres a brit in the paper this week look.
i bet it was quite common for people in britain to hunt with a bow not that long ago 50,s 60,s ?
just found this video of a Longbow moose hunt in north canada , makes me want to book a hunt LOL
black widow bows are handmade custom bows
Stunning scenery on that first one,and the way it goes into the water reminds me of a moose in a RackMan DVD I have,look at this though......
good video,s i like fred eichler
I miss canada everytime i watch a movie like that
they should legalize it here again, bullshit law just like the hunting with dogs act.
shows just how lethal a bow is
Some laws are like egg-shells,made to be broken,they are open to common sense interpretation and personal flexibility.Those moose are something else but sadly expensive for a none resident.Did you ever get to go on a hunt like that when you were in BC Daniel?
where I lived mature bull moose were on leh which is a lottery system.and I never got a permit.
but we were allowed a immature bull moose each year maximum of 2 point antler.
I managed to call in and shoot a 2 point bull each year luckily
DanielG, that sounds great, have you any pictures and please share them!
On a side note, I have bought a bow, lol. Hoyt Ultratec with cam&1/2 cams, 50-60lb. Just waiting on all the other bits now, sight, rest, release etc.
The draw weight seems quite comfortable. It's 40" axle to axle which I think will probably be more forgiving for a novice.
Had a chat with a mate of a mate who has done a bit with a bow (recently Namib') and gave me some advice so that was helpful.
heres some bow hunting pics they are all spot and stalk hunts
sorry about pics computer playing up
I apolagize for the upside down pics ,bloody computer
i always hunted moose with a rifle as my priority was to fill freezer i got a 6 week window and was only allowed 1 a year
once my freezer was full i then could relax and enjoy my bowhunting
