    Archery Hunt

    Has anybody hunted A32 Ventura the season is Nov 9 - Dec 1. It is either sex. Kill rate only 6% but don't know if that's because people don't hike into the wilderness areas or if there are no deer.

    Obsession FX-7 or Turmoil RZ

    Did not recover the pig. He ran off with my arrow and G5 striker magnum stuck in his side. Searched nearly 5 hours. Went back to the truck and my buds were there. Searched another 2 hours. Fortunately, they kicked up a pig while searching and we took home some pork.

    Obsession FX-7 or Turmoil RZ

    I'm new to bow hunting … This will be my 2nd deer season. This past spring was my 2nd turkey season. I arrowed a pig 20 yards at Fort Hunter Liggett in March. The arrow didn't pass through and through. Dammed armor plate, the arrow stopped on the other side and did not penetrate. I did bury 16...

    Look I get it... Fish and Game think have to do something to raise funds. 5 years ago or so the excess DFG funds (millions) were rolled into the general fund and DFG gets shorted in budget every year. Part of the recovery is the offer Share hunts as a fund raiser. If the elk tags were just land...

    Think about it. The biologist decides how many elk can be taken for the year. The elk taken would not negatively affect the herd population. the idea is a healthy sustainable herd. This year 2019 there are 311 tags for the public and 72 offered in the Share program for a total of 383 available...
