Well I agree that all the pieces aren’t there for an entirely accurate story I would assume that we all know places that might be like this place, where people and wildlife mingle and the animals are a little more friendly…. So I’m assuming it is one of those types of areas. I would have a hard time calling it fair chase. I’m sure most of us here have petted a golf course deer at one time or another. Or like the critters at Yellowstone.
Obviously I’m making some assumptions that the reporting is at least okay. But if there’s people in the area that you want to hunt, go somewhere else. Killing is a bloody business. Sometimes it goes wrong. And while this fellow was legal I do question his approach. While I don’t think hunters need to cower in a dark corner afraid of the anti I do think we shouldn’t force someone to watch something that they don’t need or want to see. Just move down the road to another spot. Just my two cents.
Yeah I wonder why that woman kept mentioning trophy hunting. Maybe she assumed he was the biggest moose around and that’s why he got targeted like he did?

That’s awesome, good job! I had a similar experience but not on purpose. I was trying to do some filming and I thought that my camera takes better video than my cheap recorder so I placed it next, very close, to where my arrow was to impact. It went well for awhile… that is until I looked at the phone just before release to make sure it was still lined up… I’m sure you know the rest. LOL. The bummer part is that I thought I could at least salvage the SD card and still use the video… I had removed the SD card and it was recording directly to the phone. I lost everything. Oh well.

This particular place is a 200 foot by 50 foot pond up high. It is from snow pack run off but it is year round. It has aquatic plants in it along with timber blow downs. The pond has that yellow tinge color to it. I was going to look for tracks but bumped a couple of elk and decided against hanging out in the area…. I have been looking for a spring in the area but the nearest fresh water I know of is a small lake about three quarters of a mile away. Thanks again for any and all help

It was interesting to see how many people were mad because BandC put this out. I don’t know much about BandC which is to say nothing, but people were also complaining about them rebuking high fences and how we all as brothers of the hunt need to stick together. But I really have very little in common with people who hunt in fences… Anyway it is something to think about.

I just recently seen a video where a guy took a shot at a forward facing elk. I couldn’t believe that he would have done that because it just seems like a long shot letting the air out of him. Also the elk wasn’t really spooked and he could have waited for it to keep coming and turn. Plus they recorded it and played it at the full draw film tour… I was kind of disappointed. I wouldn’t think that is how you would want to advertise yourself. They did recover the bull but I don’t know… I met another guy that bragged about making a Texas heart shot on a bull elk. He ended up with the elk but I don’t know… I had a doe that I would have gladly shot this past year in front of me for 45 minutes. Within 15 yards. I got sore and changed position several times it was so long. All I had was that facing shot. I could have put an arrow in her from minute one to 45 but waited for her to turn. She never did and another doe came behind me, I was on the ground, at about 4 feet and whiffed me and both vacated the area in a quick hurry. For me I just soon not risk a neck or a facing chest shot… I did kill one with a wheel bow where the arrow did strange things in the air and ended up just cutting the front of the neck. The blood was a misty spray and eventually the buck would have bled out but I tracked him and double lunged him because it started to rain and the blood was misty. So killing one in the throat can be done but I don’t think I would try for it.
