    Hi,

    Some random pics from the past weekend's bow buff hunt for me and a friend.

    When we arrived at the hunting ground, the land owners requested some meat for an upcoming event ... and the buff should be "meat-model-buff" ... in other words not too old, otherwise the meat is like boot leather ... below some random pics from our hunt, the camp site, etc.

    In total we got 9 buff ... and the local community got their meat.

    Hope you enjoy,
    Eugene

    Congrat's on a great hunt. That looks to be alot of fun (and work processing nine buf!) Great bow shooting too by the way.

    I'd say that you had a GREAT time. Good shooting too. If you ever decide that you want company on one of those trips let me know. It looks like it would be worth the time. Bruce

    Very nice trophy back straps. I can taste them from here.

    Thanks for sharing your hunt.
    Going swimming on a hunting trip is a little foreign to me. Unless its a Polar dip.

    Nice shots, how far are you having to shoot at these guys?

    Thanks for sharing! It actually made me realize that if I hopped in the 4WD now and started driving, I'd be up there in paradise in 2-3 days. What a temptation!
