    OK, I'll play.

    I don't think we were married when I took this one.

    Is that a Lyle recurve? I shoot a couple old Grooves one of which I had built for me custom at the Groves plant here in Albuquerque when I was 10 in 1968, the other I bought (a 1970) only about five years ago. I do hunt with a compound bow too, an old 4 runner, but am more extinctive with a recurve when something is moving faster than a walk. Shoot, I can hit rabbits on the run with my original Groves. BTW I have a Lyle fusion long bow too is why I asked.

    I get the fresh venison, the control of pests, the challenge of the hunt and the joy of a day in the woods. Bravo. Jolly good show.

    I don't get the camouflage and dayglo orange combinations. Seems mutually defeating to me. WTF? :ear

    It's the law for big game (gun season) and upland bird hunting.

    Supposedly, deer and what-not cannot see that color.

    Apparently.

    TexasRT- not to make light of you hunting the warthog or anything... but I had one of those walk up to me about 2 feet away while we had a campfire on the Serengheti.

    :hide

    EDIT: I missed the bow and arrow part... that's skill!! :nod

    Indeed, and I'm a little jealous.

    I just had visions of the dayglo being tucked away in a pocket whilst the business was being attended to.

    I've had deer stare straight in my direction while wearing the blaze orange and never see me unlike say Turkey that will see it from a mile away. The key is to stay motionless. Most hunters hunt a variaty of game and some require you to wear orange. It just makes since to just throw on a orange vest over your'e regular hunting clothes.

    If I'm hunting in a blind the vest comes off. I'll also take my vest off if I need it for a marker and I know I'm the only one hunting an area like my own land. Otherwise, I leave mine on until I'm back at the truck/road and need to use it for a pillow while napping/waiting on my ride or partner.

    My hunting includes more naps and nature watching than actual hunting by far, since it is typically the only vacation I get each year.

    That beats the hell out of shiting off of a hill with one arm hanging on a tree so you don't shit in you're bibs:lol3 . I like how this thread is going. There are some really nice "Trophies" but the really cool ones are of the kids. Good on you Dads. Love the dog pics too. This is one I found of my Dad and Uncle around 1976. I loved hunting with those dogs. Liz,Spot and Lady. I remember them like it was yesterday.

    Quail hunting is a lost art really. The two pointers were covey dogs that found the birds. The Britney was used for singles after you split them. Some here might remember hunting like that. The coyotes,Hawks and fence to fence farming has almost made this kind of hunting obsolete around here.

    No, it's a Black Widow MAII 60" @ 72#. It's been my absolute go to bow since 1990. I've shot a couple of Groves recurves and they are fantastic also. I also have a compound these days due to some shoulder/elbow problems a couple of years ago. If I can find it I'll post up a picture of a nice prairie goat I got with that bow a couple of years ago. Now that the shoulder and elbow are cooperating I am starting to shoot the recurve and longbow once again.
