    Starting to clash

    Wife and I were out Bowhunting some deer here in AZ when I heard some antlers clashing…..we stalked in on these three mature bulls……two of them were pushing each other pretty good for August. (Turn up your volume)

    They're Growing

    Timely moisture is a major necessity for good Coues antler development here in Arizona........we're finally getting some excellent moisure at the perfect time.........this one seems to be growing right in the rain. :)

    MT 2021 Spring Bear Hunt (pics)

    Mrs. BOHNTR and I headed to MT for a spring bear hunt the end of May/first part of June. After 4 days of blown stalks due to swirling wind, it finally came together and she arrowed this fine Bruin.......her first. One arrow did the trick and he was down 40 yards later. Not an easy pack out...

    2019 Last Day Bull (pics)

    Here's my last day, Arizona bull elk I arrowed in the rain. It was a tough hunt where I was at, with almost no bugling for the entire hunt. This bull bugled twice at I headed in his direction and eventually caught up to him (pure luck) while still hunting the cedar/pine mix...

    Wife's First Javelina (pic)

    When my wife and I officially became AZ residents, we visited the Pinetop G&F Office and purchased our resident archery deer tags and everything else we could buy OTC (bear, lion, turkey). I picked up a leftover HAM (Handgun, archery, muzzy) javelina tag for her, as the archery only tags for...

    Kansas Archery Hunt (Pics)

    I took my wife (Anne) on her first whitetail hunt in Kansas this past week. We stayed with some gracious friends and hunted some really neat ground (both private and public). Anne was able to arrow her 4x6 buck at 35 yards while on the ground after I grunted him in for her. He was heart shot...

    Bear Mauling Post

    Hopefully this one can stay civil and Brian or I won't have to remove. The hunter is an experienced bowhunter who I know (not a friend just acquaintance in the archery world) that I've been told waited 30 minutes......probably should have waited longer with a single lung hit. Hindsight is...

    2017 CA Archery Bruin (pic)

    I was fortunate enough to come across this big ol' bruin while bowhunting bucks in Northern California yesterday. It took three trips with HEAVY loads to get the meat and hide out......I was wishing he was smaller half way through it! Hope you enjoy. BOHNTR )))---------->

    Got Potential?

    I drove 500+ miles for a bonsai four day scouting trip to Northern Arizona in anticipation of drawing an archery tag for the unit. I photographed this 8x6 guy on July 9th......looks like he's got the potential to be a pretty good one. Hopefully I can catch up with him again in 6 weeks (I drew)...

    Wife's Frist Deer (pics)

    Well, the BOHNTR family started the New Year off okay. My wife (Anne) arrowed her very first deer at 45 yards on January 1st in Arizona. To say she was excited would be an understatement! It's been over 23 years since she bowhunted with me. Now that the kids are grown up, she's back at it...

    CA Bobcat Mount

    I arrowed this bobcat in November of 2010 in the Eastern Sierras of California. Since it had beautiful spots on its belly, I wanted a mount that displayed them properly. Decided on this pose. I used a taxidermist I don't normally use that had a reputation of doing quality work, especially...

    CA Turkey (pics)

    I had the honor of being invited by two VERY seasoned archery turkey hunters in the Northern half of the Golden State to try and get this ol' BOHNTR a gobbler that would be big enough for the California Bowmen Hunters record book. You see, a book turkey is the only specie in the state I needed...

    CA Desert Coyote (pics)

    Went out this morning in Mojave desert near my house with the hopes of calling in a coyote close enough to take with my bow and arrow. Figured it would be a good tune-up for next week's Arizona archery deer trip. At the second stand area, this male yote came trotting on in looking for an...

    Son's First Yote

    While out blacktail deer hunting this morning, my son (Cody) and I were able to sneak in on this ol' coyote. One arrow did the trick and Cody had his first coyote with a bow! He was pretty pumped, as we've been calling them during the off-season and he hasn't been able to connect. Right place /...

    Son's CA Wild Hog

    Took my son wild hog hunting with his bow and arrow this past weekend here in the Golden State. He ended up arrowing his first hog ever at 30 yards. He made a pretty good shot, as one arrow is all it took. He was pretty excited after trailing the hog up! BOHNTR )))---------->
