  • First big game animal down... finally.

    Took this boar on the northside of POW this past week. 18 13/16" and couldn't be happier. Took one 120 gr. 7mm-08 and he was down not 30 yds from where I tagged him. Best part was my son was there for the whole thing... except for tracking it. Took him back to the truck for that part. Now I just need to figutre out how to get the **** smell out of my clothes without burning them.

    Nice bear! I had my 9yo daughter with me for the deer I got this weekend. Awesome isn't it!

    As far as the smell... Sunlight, hang them outside for a while (days!)

      Yeah my son had a deer in his sights. Finally pulled the trigger and "click". Forgot to put a round in. Once we loaded the round in the chamber, the deer turned his butt towards us and walked straight into the timber. He was a good sport and didn't get bummed out. He had a blast the whole week down there.

        THAT is what family hunting is all about... passing it along to our kids. Thanks for sharing! Hopefully next year he will get his buck Used to live in Naukati and Coffman...were you hunting north of those communities?

          Yes JuliW, I was up at Whale Pass at Fish Tales Lodge. Animals were tougher to find but there was very little pressure.

              Great pictures! I just kept on wearing my hunting pants after getting coyote blood all over them, about a year later they either didn't smell or I had gotten used to it. Figured it was a more natural smell than anything I would have tried to clean them with...

                  Hell yeah Jay!!!! It took time, patience, practice, and even arrows through the hand. Good job, now it is onto the next adventure.

                    So if the clothes smell I'm guessing the meat wasn't too good either? Was it fishy?
                    Awesome job for you and your son!

                          Thanks everyone. Denali Hunter, I am still looking forward to getting back up to your place to get a brownie in the future.

                            Very cool, congrats to Father and Son.

                            Try washing your smelly stuff with 1/4 vinegar added to wash. I've had luck using vinegar to neutralize bad smells in clothes and carpets.

                              Thanks for all of the suggestions. I have baking soda, vinegar, and pet deodorizing carpet cleaner. Soaked the clothes in a tub with half a box of baking soda for 24 hrs that got stunk up by being washed together. That worked. Soaking the hunting gear now. Will see tomorrow.
