I have established hunting goals that require me to not only take but learn as much as I can about certain game animals. This is all in an attempt to become an informed, knowledgable hunter and outdoorsman. By targeting these creatures with archery equipment, I believe it will put me close to the animal, in its environment. Below are photos of the ones I have been successful with as well as blank spots for the ones I have not. These would be what I would consider 'dream hunts' as they are found in other parts of the country and I cannot hunt locally.
North American Game
Buffalo (Bison bison)
Mountain Lion (Puma concolor)
Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis)
|Georgia, September 2011|
Do-it-yourself hunt where I found Dane Lancaster from Georgia who also drew a tag for zone 4. Took 3 years to draw a tag for the hunt. We hunted all night for two consecutive nights, withstanding numerous setbacks in order to pull this nearly 6 footer in. Complete bowkill, using a gator setup to shoot the gator and bring him to the boat, then using a broadhead to dispatch him by shooting him through the spinal cord while still in the water.
Pronghorn (Antilocapra americana)
COMING 2012, NEBRASKA/WYOMING
