I am newly registered on the site, even though I have been reading and viewing posts for quite a while, so I thought I would show you a picture of the spike I shot this year in Utah with my bow (I hope the pictures show up). He is nothing like Greenhorn's, but then again, whose is???



I shot the spike in Utah on 8/27/02. I was sitting in the same treestand that I shot my deer and elk out of last year, which is in a spike or cow only area.It was a little after 7:30 pm and I hadn't seen or heard anything, so I thought I would try to stir something up with a bugle and a few cow calls. Immediately after calling, this spike showed up walking directly towards me. He wandered for a minute down to my right in some trees and I thought I wasn't going to get a shot opportunity, but a soft cow call brought him back in the open heading towards the water hole. He stepped into a large opening at 25 yards and I hit him perfectly. He went only 20-25 yards after the hit and was dead in minutes.

I'm sure it scored well enough to feed the crew from Hunt Talk... So when's the BBQ?

I'll bring the potato salad...

Congratulations and welcome to Hunttalk..

There are a few guys you have to watch out for around here... be careful of people in pink dresses with beards..... :D

Thanks Everybody!!
He is definitely good eating and it was a blast of a hunt-I love bowhunting elk!!

Anyways, I really do think this is the best hunting forum on the net (good brownie points, huh Moosie??). Everyone is pretty laid back and there are no A-holes like some of the others. Thanks for the welcome!!
