    Nice pics and good luck in the hunt!

    What bow, I'm betting aluminum shaft arrows, but what broad heads?

    UncleMorgan I eat vegetables. My friends are not vegetables.

    I have no doubt that Bishop can skin grizz...and probably much better than Jeremiah Johnson.

    @Bishop How close do you have to get to them to try a shot... I guess I am asking what is a good range to ensure you get a kill shot, an 'effective range vs. a 'maximum range'? I have no clue about bow hunting and these animals are big so, I'm interested.

    @ Bishop I'm curious about why the carbon fiber over aluminum, and which Muzzy do you prefer for those big Wapiti and are you hunting Roosevelt, Manitoban, Tule or Rocky Mountain? enquiring minds, you know...

    Archery carbon arrows over aluminum because at Carpenter is either straight or is broken that way there is no if ands or buts about is your hair straight I'm also shooting the original muzzies 3 blade 125 grain with a 20 grain insert so I'm shooting a hundred forty five grains total on my tip my arrow weighs 510 grains total and out to about 35 yards I can put it inside the 15in of the lung area of a elk and I'm up in the Rocky Mountain elk please the capital of money and I really am hung up because of all the same one old coming up here I swear to God I'm covered many miles if I had a mule deer tag I could have killed about eight of them already they will walk within 10 yards of me

    The Mulies must be reading the forum... Thanks for the archery hunting lesson, never thought about the bent issue with the aluminum, and since all I shoot from my 45# Self Bow are cedar shaft with field points... :ROFLMAO:

    Maybe the mule deer will send a nice big Elk your way..

    I just called Hitlery and told her your coordinates and lied a little when I said that's where Assange is currently hiding. Drone strike may be imminent, better get some hunting done up there and scoot.

    :cool:
