    Very cool video. Did the arrow get a complete pass through? As for the FOB, does that thing just come off the arrow as it hits the near side hide? Great looking animal.

    BTW - used my Wiggy's bag for the first time this weekend and LOVED IT!!!!

    That's cool that you caught that all on video! Nice shot, great call! Well done all the way around ... with all these special permit hunts over the years - you should be seasoned enough now to head out into Alaska with the rest of us!

    Yep, full pass-through. FOB just popped off, allowing a slick shaft to keep on driving.

    I'll reuse the shaft, broadhead and FOB. Couldn't find my Accunock, but there's more where it came from.

    Thanks, Guys.

    Vince, that cow call has brought many a bull to within 20 yards. Notice it was a no-hands, no-call version. I usually pass on a couple before connecting, but this year was a little different. Honestly, we didn't know whether the answering bull would be a shooter or not. Once I got a good look at him, well... He was a shooter.

    Most often I utilize a Bull Magnet, but in this case I had just done a full-on dual calling session and told my buddy to get the camera, a bull is inbound. I gave him one last yell to make sure he knew exactly where to go. After that I gave him no other audibles. They'll disqualify you as a moose if you call too much after they show interest.

    Default What Broadhead?

    Good job Marc.

    What were you shooting? I have a Mathews Q2XL shooting Axis Arrows and Slick Tricks. Some have been trying to talk me into Snuffers.

    I drew the December/January Ft. Rich hunt. Have you hunted that one? I am starting to get pumped.

    Haven't had the winter hunt, sorry. Take lots of time off and hunt it hard and early. They'll be dropping antlers early this year.

    Thanks for asking,

    'Splain to us what a "hat full of ****" is?? Or maybe you could just show us your picture and that might explain it better.

    A little Before / During Action: I took these from my video camera.

    My finger was on the release trigger ----->




    The arrow goes through his chest. Note the FOB at his center-chest ----->



    Just having fun,
    Taylor
