Mounting Bear and Boar Skulls -Robert Steenbeke

Mounting Bear and Boar Skulls – Robert Steenbeke
Bowhunting World June 1990

Thump! That’s as close as I can describe the sound of hitting a 150-
pound wild boar with a pickup truck.
I know what that sounds like because I
did it, not on purpose mind you,
but I did it. Of course, hitting a wild animal with a
truck in Texas is noting unusual.

During any average 24-hour period in the Hill Country
there are nearly 100 animal/vehicle mishaps.
What happened after my collision however, was
quite unusual, and it leads nicely into my taxidermy
story, so let me tell you about it.

The boar wasn’t killed by the impact of my truck
and kept on going, crashing through a fence and into
a whitebrush thicket. When I backed up and got out
of my truck I could hear him in the thicket, growling
like a cornered dog. The only weapon I had in the
truck was my bow, so I hesitated to go into the brush
after him. I just couldn’t let the animal suffer
though, if indeed he was, so I started checking things
out. What made me wonder about his suffering or
not was the fact that the growling did not sound hurt,
just mad as the devil and looking for revenge. If I had
not found any blood at the scene I probably would
have left, but I did find blood on the fence, and a few
drops were also visible on the other side. Since I had
permission to hunt that thicket, I decided to try to do
something about the situation.

Clutching my bow, I made a circle downwind of
the growling. Thirty yards into the thicket, facing his
backtrail, there stood the hog, except he was only
using three legs, and one of those didn’t look too
steady. Slowly, I stalked to within 20 yards of him
and looked for a hole to put the arrow through. I
thought I found one big enough and let the arrow go,
but I ticked a limb and hit a little far back from where
I wanted to. Still, the shot looked good and I didn’t
figure he was going too far.

After an unproductive search for my arrow, I took
up the blood trail. I had gone about 50 yards when I
spotted a rabbit. It was an easy shot to make, so I
took the broadhead off the bow and put on a washer
backed field point. Just as I got the field point on the
bow I heard a grunt. Looking up, I saw the boar,
coming for me as fast as three legs could carry him,
his mouth wide open and looking like he had a hundred
teeth, each a foot long. I was scared, I don’t
mind telling you, but having absolutely nowhere to
go in that whitebrush thicket, I drew back the bow
and let him come. When he was where I knew I
couldn’t miss, I looked him in the eyes and let go of
the shaft. Fortunately, I got close to my mark,
smacking him in the bridge of the nose and passing
through into the throat, stopping the charge but not
dropping him. The hog then crashed into the brush
where the arrow hung him up just long enough for
me to get another arrow on the bow, off the bow, and
into him. This shot was right where it belonged, and
as the animal turned to run away, he stumbled; four
steps later he went down for good.

That late Spring afternoon is one I will never forget,
I guarantee you that, but still I wanted to have
some permanent memento of it. I decided that the
hog’s skull would do just fine, arrow hole and all.
This is the step by step of how I mounted it, and this
procedure works equally well on cougar, bear, wolf
or most any critter without antlers or horns.

Step 1: Using a small razor-sharp knife, cape out
the skull. Start at the mouth, opening it up and cutting
where the lips are connected to the base of the
gums in both the upper and lower jaws. Cut and peel
the skin from here up over the nose, and clown
around the lower jaw. It will start to get difficult
where the skull widens just in front of the eyes. At
that point, switch to the neck end of the skull and cut
and peel from there. Once you have the skin off, cut
off as much meat and connective tissue as possible.

Step 2: Boil water in a pot that will hold the entire
skull. When boiling rapidly, add two teaspoons of
Borax per quart of water, then put in the skull and
jaw. Let the water come back to a boil for 20 minutes.

Step 3: After 20 minutes of reboiling, remove the
skull and jaw. Using a hot pad and channel—lock pliers,
carefully remove the front teeth back to and including
the canine teeth. Pour the water used for
boiling through some kind of strainer to catch any
teeth that may have come loose and fallen out.

Step 4: Let everything air cool. Do not try to rush
cooling by pouring cold water on things or they will
most probably crack. Once it’s all cool, you will
need to either clean the pieces up. Use a wire brush
and/ or DULL knife to clean all the loose teeth. Use a
sharp knife to finish removing every bit of
flesh, including the eyes and tongue, from the
skull. The brain is then removed with a drill
and a whip made from a coat hanger. This will
break it up, and then a garden hose will blow
it out. Now, let everything dry for about a
week, longer if it’s very humid.

Step 5: While the skull and jaw are drying,
out out a plaque to mount them on. Make the
plaque big enough to stabilize the mount, but
not so big that it makes the skull look small, 2-
3 inches of space around the skull is about
right. For a more professional look, router the
edge of the plaque. Complete the plaque by
using a good prestain sealer, stain, and finish
that matches your decor. Follow the directions
given by the manufacturers of the products you
choose to use. They want your repeat
business, so they tell you the best ways to get
me best results.

Step 6: When the skull is done drying use
2 wire brush to remove the last little bits of
flesh and tissue that are still left, and to prepare
the surface for painting. Brush on a good
quality prestain wood sealer and let it dry to
complete the preparations for painting.

Step 7: Use a good quality, appliance
white spray enamel to paint the skull and jaw.
Apply several light coats rather than one thick
one, since a thick coat will run. Let each coat
dry thoroughly before applying the next or the
paint will peel. And, be sure to paint the parts
from every angle, People always seem to notice any
little spot that you miss.

Step 8: After the paint dries thoroughly,
set the teeth back into the jaw using clear silicon
sealant/adhesive. Wash your hands well
before handling the skull or jaw to minimize
ugly fingerprints. While resetting the teeth,
you will find that you can reset them with less
root, making them appear longer than they
actually were. In my personal opinion
though, they look really fake when they are
too long. It also makes assembly harder since
the bottom jaw will need to set forward of normal
to allow for the extra length. Experiment
with the length until everything fits together
firmly, yet you get the tooth length that you
want to show.

Step 9: Assemble the skull and jaw and
position them on the plaque exactly where you
want them to wind up. Find a bolt which,
when the skull is on the plaque, will reach
through the plaque and about 3/4 of the way
through the brain cavity. Remove the skull!
jaw and drill a hole through the plaque for the
bolt, right under where the brain cavity will
wind up. Countersink this hole so the mount
won`t sir up off the table or wall.

Step 10: Put the bolt through the hole,
tighten it into place with a washer and nut on
top of the plaque, then put a dab of paint or ink
on the top of it. Carefully lower the skull/jaw
onto the plaque exactly above the spot you
want it to sit. The ink will mark a spot on the
bottom of the skull where you should drill a
hole for the bolt. Be careful not to drill all the
way through the skull. Drill and countersink a
second hole through the plaque, right be-
tween the jaws and under the bridge of the
nose. Then repeat the bolt, skull, ink trick
again, using a bolt that goes 3/4 of the way
through the nasal cavities.

Step 11: We are now ready for final assembly.
Turn the skull upside down on a soft
towel or rag to prevent skuffing the paint job.
Fill the two holes you drilled in the skull with
silicon sealant/adhesive. Put the bolt assembly
into place and allow l2 hours to dry before
turning the mount over. Tum it over and
presto! , you have a mount to be proud of.
Felting the bottom of the plaque makes a truly
professional looking table top display, or add
thin rubber pads to the bottom and use as
bookends when you get two of them, or add
hanging hardware and use as a wall mount.

They all look great, and are sure to be a conversation starter. >>—>

Attention Outdoorsy Women!

For the last two years I have been working on developing my own women’s outdoor apparel line. Recently I received my samples from the manufacturer and to save time/money they used what materials they had to build the basic form. The fabric they used on my light weight shooting jacket was a brown with gold thread, making it shimmer. I liked the look of it, and asked other hunters if it would affect birds when hunting in the field and they said no.

Would you wear a jacket like this?

All of your input and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Jess

Jesse Broadwater Chat Transcript!!!

First off, thanks to Jesse Broadwater, Greg Poole and Goldtip for making this chat happen! We had a great time and Jesse has a tremendous amount of knowledge to share!

Thanks to JHENS for saving all of the logs to build this transcript and to all other moderators that made it in to lend a hand!

    [B]Jesse Broadwater Featured Chat[/B]

JHENS87 – Jesse, what made you switch from the shoot through system at Lancaster to the arc-tec cable slide system for Vegas?

Jesse Broadwater- ok, I’ll go with the first question I see….. regarding the move from the shoot thru to the arc tec rod…

Jesse Broadwater- I like the idea of reducing torque, no matter what kind of torque… I feel the bow can be a line, and responds better to any tuning adjustments, and also tends to hold better for me…….

Jesse Broadwater- but using a whole shoot thru cable system on a bow such as a Hoyt, requires some other changes sometimes, and other modifications, to make it work right… it can be a lot of work to get it right…. and not everybody wants to do that, or knows what to do….

Jesse Broadwater-  so I found the arc tec rods in France this year at Nimes, and brought it home, and tried it…. it was just so much easier, and cleaner, and also, anybody can use them, with ease… and you get the same effect, as the shoot thru…

Jesse Broadwater- tfdo, where’s your question?

jason t -I would like to know what your scope set-up is for the orange spots at the marked yardage championship in Redding. Whether you prefer a circle, fiberoptic, or dot..? Thanks…

Jesse Broadwater- other question up there on scope set up

Jesse Broadwater- I use a CR scope, and for Redding and field, I use the frosted lens….

Jesse Broadwater- been using the 5 power feather vision lens, with homemade frosting paper…. no clarifier

EASTON94 – there you go Jesse answer that one bud!

Hopperton -I would like to know what v-bar set-up you start with when starting from scratch on a new bow? Is it a lot of weight and then remove till it feels right or little weight and add it on as you go

Hopperton -What determines it?

XXX_Shooter -Hey Jesse…. Just wanted to say hi… Christopher Perkins here bud ttyl…

EASTON94 -bowmadness….give us a mad freakdaddy question!!

Jesse Broadwater. -hi Chris!

jason t  -Thank you

Hamdog -I hold a lot steadier with more weight on my bow but my bow arm really gets tired after about 6 ends I then the sight picture is not so steady. I would assume that this is because I do not have enough holding weight. Is there a general rule of thumb you use to figure out the amount of holding weight vs. bow mass weight?

Jesse Broadwater – here’s my deal with holding weight…. and mass weight… I try to use as much as I can, without it biting me in the butt…. what that means is, I want to have enough energy, and strength, to complete my round, whatever it may be, and not getting tired at the end, and loosing points at end of round….

Jesse Broadwater – here is what I found…. I feel the vantage elite is calmer to aim, when the limbs are parallel to the ground, at full draw….. factory specs has the limbs pretty parallel, but not quite flat at full draw, for my set up anyhow, with my size cams and all….

Jesse Broadwater — ok, holding weight, sorry… lemme look

Jesse Broadwater-  but yea, there is a link between holding weight and mass weight also…. it all has to work together in harmony, for things to be just right….. For what you’re shooting, that’s the kicker. Don’t be afraid to change your stabilizer setup, for diff types of shooting, to get the most efficiency out of you, and your setup, for what you’re shooting

Jesse Broadwater-  and remember, what works in practice, may not, when under pressure, so take away all that you can from a tournament, the next time, and when you go to make a change in practice, remember what it felt like in the tournament scene…. since that’s probably what you are practicing for…

Jesse Broadwater- that’s a general rule of thumb for me. But it fluctuates for me, and that’s why u see me playing with weights a good bit, sometimes all throughout the round….

Bowmaddness- Hi Jesse, I was wondering what is a good 3d arrow you recommend from Gold Tip?

Jesse Broadwater- 3d arrow from gold tip….. I would say the 22 series is a real good all-around arrow, 30x even triple x… really depend on the balance between distance, wind, and how much line catching you think you need…

Jesse Broadwater- I used the 22 series for the k 50 I shot not long ago, and it worked great… I feel I coulda got away with a xxx also though, and grabbed a few extra points, cause they both shoot equally well, if you tune your bow for them, and there wasn’t much wind, it was pretty sheltered ranges..

Jesse Broadwater- ok, what was next question?

edgerat –  Jesse, how do you go about setting up your string/cables as it relates to ATA and BH on a new bow? Your VE+ looks to have a pretty short ATA. Do you determine that by shooting the bow and getting the hold where you want it? How did you come to that determination, trial and error or, did someone put you on that idea in the beginning?

Jesse Broadwater- ok, string specs.. a to a specs…

Jesse Broadwater –  here is what i found…. i feel the vantage elite is calmer to aim, when the limbs are parallel to the ground, at full draw….. factory specs has the limbs pretty parallel, but not quite flat at full draw, for my set up anyhow, with my size cams and all….

edgerat – Thanks Jesse!

r49740  – ha-ha. Sorry For a draw length need in the middle of cam sizes(spirals), like a 29.25"… would you find it more beneficial to go to 29” and make longer string/shorter cables, or go to 29.5 and do the opposite? With that, can you give a quick idea of what each may feel like(meaning better valley feel, harder wall, one aims higher/lower than the other, etc.)? And to round out the previous string question, which of those two gets your limbs to be more parallel to the ground as you like them? Thanks greatly.

Jesse Broadwater- ok, draw length and cam size with spirals….. I always like to go to the shorter cam size and long string it a lil… gives you a lil more valley…

Mike@R100 – PARTNER….. When you are on your last few ends of and spot tournament AND YOU ARE STILL CLEAN what goes through your head?!? Tonight I shot another 60X but gets sloppy towards then end… I’m not nervous until my last arrow…

bigGP – good question

Jesse Broadwater- what do I think on last few ends of a clean round…… well, you know what the answer should be right?? it should be the same thing, that got you to where you are…. the thing is, you need to just not think about the ending, and enjoy the moments that you are in, until the score cards all filled up, and there are no more spaces to be filled, and someone says “that’s it, we are done”…..

Daniel Boone – Jesse have you shot the GT new Fita arrow and will that be your arrow for field this year

Hamdog –  Thank you Jesse.

flatline_shoote – When you are practicing for a Vegas shoot how many arrows do you shoot in practice to make sure you don’t get tired during the tournament. I have been a 3 D shooter and now branching into the spots but I start to lose it on the last 15 or so arrows. Also what do you use as an aiming dot or fiber when shooting Vegas 3 spots

Mike@R100 – THANKS HOMIE, ITS HARD WHEN THEY SAY (THIS IS YOU12TH AND FINAL END) IM LIKE WWWWAAHHHHHHH

Jesse Broadwater- I apologize if I miss someone, just yell at me… I’m trying to go in order…

bonecollector56 – Is there such a thing as too stiff of an arrow for target shooting? Because wouldn’t you want the least movement (flex) in the arrow as possible when the only thing you are shooting is field tips?

Jesse Broadwater- I think the ultra-light, or pro hunters, are an awesome arrow, for a blend of speed, and good dia for outdoor….

Jesse Broadwater-  the thing is, I’ve shot all the different arrows from gold tip now, and it’s pretty much as easy as picking the weight, and diameter you think is best for what you’re going to be shooting, and go from there….

bigGP – Not sure who to ask anymore but I think if Jesse could talk about how important strings and cables are to performance and consistency that would be some good info?

jman_23 – what do you use for setting your 2nd and 3rd axis?

fasst – Folks, please do not post a question unless we call your name

Jesse Broadwater- I use the Hamskea leveler for everything… it works awesome, and is easy to use

NEVADAPRO – That’s OK!! I’ve learned to live with it!!LOL!!

Jesse Broadwater- and it works too…. ha-ha!

NEVADAPRO-  Gotta love the Hamskea!!!

ferretboy – Jesse: a buddy of yours makes a shoot thru system, I was very interested in getting one for the alpha elite, would that or the arc tilt be better, and congrats on your recent win, great shooting

ferretboy – mike has already given me a price and would like me to be the guinea pig on the alpha shoot through

jman_23 – ok, do you put your bow in a vise or set it on a table to check everything?

Jesse Broadwater- stiff arrow question up there somewhere I saw… I think if you get the arrow coming out of the bow straight, it doesn’t matter if the arrow flexes of not… and use the correct amount of guidance on back, and point weight to tune for the forgiveness factor..

JHENS87 – 1 question at a time please. Gonna make Jesse’s fingers hurt lol

bigGP – He is a delicate flower

ferretboy –   hahaha, a delicate flower, priceless, when he’s not looking at Louisville I’m putting that sticker on his bowcase

jman_23 –   thanks for everything Jesse!!!

Jesse Broadwater – and I basically just hold level on limb pockets, match the elevation bar to it, then a vise is nice to set the second axis, just clamp hamskea onto elevation bar, and match level in scope to it, while bow is pointed parallel to ground….. set that. Then put alignment pin in hamskea, leave attached to elevation bar, draw bow, and line it up on a plumb string, up and down… make adjustments

fasst – We’ve only got Jesse for a few more minutes y’all, PM me if you have a question and I will call your name in order until time runs out

Jesse Broadwater- I’m fine for a bit,, just lemme have um… don’t wanna miss anybody…

T.FDO – Jesse…How should one go about selecting Brand/Weight/and Length when they have no access to different stabilizers to try? Is there a Formula you use to figure your length/weight for you stabilizers? (This would be for Bowhunter class and just hunting in general) Also…Do you prefer vanes or feathers? Which one? And what length guides the arrow best?

Jesse Broadwater- ok, stabilizer, and vanes/feathers….

ferretboy – Jesse: a buddy of yours makes a shoot thru system, I was very interested in getting one for the alpha elite, would that or the arc tilt be better, and congrats on your recent win, great shooting

fasst – nevada, then montigre, then outback then custard then conquest….whew! We will call yall in that order….

Jesse Broadwater – for hunting, as with target, I think it depends on what you’re doing…. and how much u can handle and all…. but I can’t say there is any given formula to go by when selecting one…. I think the best thing to do here is, find a place/dealer/buddy, that can let you try diff configurations on your bow, and get it in the ball park, then just buy some extra weights, to tinker around with, and carry with you, incase u think u need them….

Jesse Broadwater-  but in general, I like to use a 15″ bar out front of my carbon matrix, with about 6-8 oz., and a 12″ back bar, with 10 or so on it…. seems like a lot, but when u get the balance right, it isn’t bad at all, its comfy, and you would be amazed at how much better you will shoot your hunting rig, rather than just a 6″ rubber stabilizer screwed in front, that actually aint doing anything….

Jesse Broadwater – and you will have much more confidence in your shot, and your set up will be a lot more forgiving, when the moment of truth arrives, and that massive 5 point PA buck is in range…. 🙂
ferretboy –  hahahahahaha 5 pt.

bigGP – LMAO nice
T.FDO  – Hahaha…Thanks Jesse!

Jesse Broadwater- just kidding, there are some nice ones here in PA… just never where I hunt!!

fasst – You’re on deck montigre!

montigre – Hi Jesse, and thanks for doing this chat. How do you go about determining the parameters for fine tuning a specific set up (string/cable length, limb deflection, etc) say for field? What is the baseline you work from and steps considered to reach your desired fit? Thanks!

edgerat – good question!

bigGP  – nevada & Mont asked good ones

ferretboy – Jesse is swamped blast big GP with some questions everybody

bigGP – huh? Wrong chat bro! hahahahaha

edgerat –  Greg Poole, how much does your dog eat?

NEVADAPRO – Hi Jesse, what do you feel is the most important part of setting up your bow (for either field or indoor) to allow the best possible hold on the spot? Is it more in the DL and holding weight, or in the stabilizer set-up? Thanks!

Jesse Broadwater- Well, I would say we all have a baseline to go off of, and for me, it’s the minor tweaks here and there that can all add up, and make all the difference….

ferretboy – good question edge

fasst – outback jack, you’re up!

bigGP- 12 cups a day of super good dog food with raw liver and venison burger (1 cup)

edgerat – nice, good call Mr. Poole

outback jack – Jesse have you ever had problems with your bow shoulder wanting to rise on you and if so what was one of the things you did to fix it? Thanks.

bigGP – good question bro!!

outback jack – Thanks one of my major problems

Jesse Broadwater- like drawlength, an 1/8″ shorter, longer…. peep height, sight extension length, scope size/power, aiming reference point in scope, stabilizers, holding weight… all of this….. It all can be optimized, for efficiency, for the round you’re preparing for, it just takes time behind the string, actually practicing what you’re preparing for…. (Wow, did that just make sense)

Jesse Broadwater- practicing what you’re preparing for…. hmmm, yea……

bigGP –  eeeeasy freakshow

montigre –  Thanks!!

Jesse Broadwater- ok, so in field, you got up and down hills, side hills….. terrain…… some wind, some lighting changes… some rain here and there….

edgerat – Greg Poole, have you found a big gain from running a 10 degree down QD on your b-stinger setup?

bigGP – Jesse runs one also. I think he can answer that when its time……….

ferretboy- Hey Greg, what is your opinion on tan slacks and the wearing them at Vegas?

Jesse Broadwater – practice all this stuff, and practice in that weather, to know what your setup does, in those conditions…. unload your quiver on that nasty up or down hill target, and pay attention to what your feeling, and seeing… you see, this sport is all about feel…. so if something doesn’t feel right, you can usually make a change, and the feel will change…. u gotta play to find that comfy spot….

bigGP  – bout time!!! We should have been wearing no denim at Vegas forever….it’s a shooter of the year pro event so the nfaa pro dress code applies. It’s just a start

fasst – GoldCustard, have your question ready for Jesse?

Jesse Broadwater –  ohh no.. not the slacks!!!

ferretboy- hahahahaha, I threw that in to see if you two were paying attention Jesse

Jesse Broadwater- who’s my next one from?

bigGP –  Jesse is in the know zone right now… the freakshow hears and sees all!!! LMAO

bigGP –  about the front shoulder

outback jack – me I think

ferretboy –  hahahahahaha

fasst –  the bow shoulder question, Jesse

fasst-  Jesse have you ever had problems with your bow shoulder wanting to rise on you and if so what was one of the things you did to fix it? Thanks.

ferretboy-  do you know Jesse’s buddy that makes the shoot through system Greg?

bigGP –  who is it?

Jesse Broadwater-  I need to write a book…. I tell my wife that all the time, cause it seems I never get out, all of what I want to get out, when somebody asks a question… cause there are so many variables, and scenarios…. I think if just wrote them all down, and got it all out, I would feel better… lol!! Not saying that may book would be worth two nickels to anybody, but for my own good… just to get the info, from my experiences out, and on paper…

ferretboy –  mike something or other

bigGP  –  I have a shoot thru on my VE+………Jesse made it. LMAO

Jesse Broadwater- you’re talking about mike mathews that makes the shoot thru… hes my friend loclally, and knows his stuff!

Jesse Broadwater-  very technical savvy guy…

bigGP –  wow

bigGP –  LOL

ferretboy –  that is him, he offered to let me guinea pig with the alpha elite but said his machine is down

edgerat-  If Jesse, Gillingham, GRIV, and a few of the others all got together and did something that would be EPIC.

Jesse Broadwater-  ok, 40c and some lint…. Ill do it!!

ferretboy –  just to be fair I was saying that Jesse was seriously undervaluing his book

edgerat –  you push a hard bargain Broadwater but, I will do it.

bigGP  –  shoulder question Jesse

Jesse Broadwater –  shoulder…..

bigGP –  come on ADD boy!

fasst  – lol

ferretboy –  I’m in stitches you guys are a buzz

NEVADAPRO –  I’ll give you $19.99 for the book, but I would like 20 value payments!!!!LOL!!!

bigGP –  Dealing with jesse is like herding cats! Or holding smoke in your hands!

NEVADAPRO  –  Like pushing a boulder with a string?

outback jack –  I got a feeling he is typing up an answer right now:d

edgerat-  Jesse knows, there is no spoon……

ferretboy –  You need to change your moniker to master cat herder Greg

bigGP –  nawwww at least you can find the boulder…..

bigGP –  lmao

NEVADAPRO –  LOL!!!

ferretboy-  and write a book too, the Zen of cat herding

bigGP – Jesse is pissed right now….cuz he is trying an answer to the shoulder question while I bash his face in and he can’t reply!!!!

bigGP – he he hehe he

ferretboy – he’ll give it back full force at nationals GP

outback jack –  Whoa whoa let up on him at least till he answers it lol

JHENS87 –  I’m sure he’s afraid of you ferret lol

bigGP –  probly

ferretboy –  oh, and I drank the koolaid and bought the stingers

bigGP  –  shibby!

JHENS87 –  I’m trying to shoot bstinger. Really trying

fasst –  Send me one of those stingers Dave

montigre –  I have a whole hive of ’em….

ferretboy –  not a chance trav, hell I put one of the sidebars on my element and its working awesome as a front with 6 ounces on there

Jesse Broadwater-  my bow shoulder always has seemed to be a lil higher than most… I dunno why, it just seems to lock in there… but I have done work on lowering it last year, and it lowered some, and still remained comfy… I think it was causing me some low misses here and there…

fasst –  gee thanks Dave

edgerat –  my turn for a question now? It is hard-hitting….

fasst –  go for it edge, then conquest is up

Jesse Broadwater-  mike mathews helped me with this also… he took some pics, and said I wasn’t standing straight

ferretboy –  greg, find out where Jeremy’s stabilizer is, least you can do for him being such a great moderator tonight

edgerat –  Mr. Broadwater, what is like being out-dressed on the line by Greg Poole?

fasst –  ouch, edge!

bigGP –  he is used to it.

ferretboy –  so your posture was keeping your bow shoulder high?

JHENS87 –  I know where my stab is at ferret, waiting to be put together LOL

ferretboy –  wait…wait… let him finish this question

Jesse Broadwater-  said I was leaning back a lil, needed to get my upper body more centered over my hips, and to do this, I shifted a lil more weight over my lead foot, and it seemed to help higher shoulder

fasst –  nice tip Jesse

ferretboy-  nice, that was some valuable info

outback jack –  k thanks will give me something to look at

conquest –  Do you pull hard into the wall or do you shoot off the front of the cam? Do you fletch right or left helical and why?

bigGP –  I got packing to do folks. I am OUT!!! Thanks everyone and good looking out Jesse! See you tomorrow

Jesse Broadwater –  he told me to kind of pretend I’m shooting a lil bit of a downhill target on the set up, and that made total sense to me, and it worked pretty good.. but that’s kind of a major change, even though it doesn’t sound like much, it changes feel a lot, after you have been doing something the same way for so long, like whooping Greg in foot races, and shooting, for him to actually prevail one time, it just wouldn’t seem right you know.. gotta give it some adaptation time… hahahahahahehehehehe!!!

fasst –  Thanks again Greg!

JHENS87 –  have fun building my stab for me GP

ferretboy –  later Greg, putem in the x

Jesse Broadwater –  sweet dreams Greg!…hahaha

ferretboy –  hahahahaha, he won’t beat you unless he takes out your knee caps

Jesse Broadwater-  ( I sure hope he logged out before reading that)

conquest –  my turn?

Jesse Broadwater-  conquest.. yes….

NEVADAPRO –  I told you Jesse would get you back when he was through typing Greg!!LOL!!!

Jesse Broadwater –  I shoot just against wall

bigGP –  ohhhhh foot race?? I don’t race scrubs!…after I already whooped them!..goodnight now!!!

conquest –  how about fletching

Jesse Broadwater –  unless it real windy, then I pull a lil harder

Jesse Broadwater-  and I fletchings I have been going with left off set… gives you better vane to cable clearance with bigger arrows especially…

montigre –  Ooh, gotta be up in 4 hours…Thanks, again Jesse and best of luck to everyone heading out to L’ville!!

Jesse Broadwater-  ok, I can do about two more.. then got lots to do.. Leaving for AZ Cup at about 3 in morning… I will sleep on plane…..

fasst –  Daniel Boone, go for it big guy!!

GoldCustard –  Hi Jesse, I was wondering if there is a recommended procedure for setting the optimal position (front/back) of arrow contact with the freakshow arrowrest? Thanks
.
Daniel Boone –  Jesse have you shot the GT new Fita arrow and will that be your arrow for field this year! Did you enjoy the ASA event in Monroe?

JHENS87 –  good question DB, I’m interested in those new arrows

Jesse Broadwater-  rest question first, than GT…

edgerat –  montigre sure knows how to make an exit.

Jesse Broadwater –  sight bow in…. then draw back, and torque bow, and shoot, if arrow hits the way your stabilizer was pointed when torques, the rest needs to come back…. if it goes opposite, it needs to go forward… really that simple

Jesse Broadwater-  I have not shot or seen new small dia GT fita arrows….

edgerat –  dang, that is a good piece of tuning info!

ferretboy-  that’s the question I had lined up before I got booted. Thanks edge

Daniel Boone – Good info on rest, many always wonder

Jesse Broadwater- I am shooting 500 kinetics now, and they shoot real good…. 120 up front, 2″ aae max vanes on back, and they pound! Weigh about 345….
 
ferretboy – I’m out all, thanks for coming jess, professional as always. Congrats on Vegas and best of luck at Louisville and abroad. Dave Henderson

fasst – Folks, let’s give Jesse, Greg and Goldtip a HUGE thank you! We got off to a rocky start but ended up with some really good questions and answers. Jeremy will have a transcript build to post in the General Forums sometime tomorrow!

Daniel Boone – Thanks Jesse good luck in Arizona

Edgerat- THANKS JESSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

bigredhunter00 – lol

JHENS87 – thanks again Jesse

Jesse Broadwater- And I enjoyed Monroe! I wanna do another, I know what to do know, and could do a lot better, it was fun..

Jesse Broadwater- thanks you guys! And you’re all welcome!

2X2X2X2 By Ted Nugent

There are some hunting destinations around the world that any, if not all hunters would do just about anything to experience at least once in their life. Africa, Alaska, across the wilds of Canada and pretty much every top hunting destination in North America have provided me many dream hunts so far. I’ve been so lucky it is inexplicable, but I shall continue to pursue, wrangle, manipulate, beg, borrow and almost steal to continue my good blessings.

I moved to Texas nine years ago for a series of coincidental reasons, but at the top of the list is the incredible quality hunting all across the mighty Lone Star State.

From the deer and exotic infested Hill Country to the world’s best kept muledeer secret of West Texas, to those maximum quality managed deer heavens around Albany, to the pig and Auodad dreams, waterfowling, varmints and beyond, there is no doubt that my favorite hunting is celebrated in South Texas where the deer are big and ubiquitous, the land is beautiful and endless, and the people are the best on earth.

I return to the famed Kenedy Ranch each winter to plunge headfirst into the dynamic tradition of deer hunting there, and can honestly say it is like no place on earth. The terrain is diverse, the land loaded with populations of wildlife that seem to defy the truism of carrying capacity. The huge, delicious, ultra wary Indian Nilgai antelope provides some of the most challenging hunting found anywhere. Javelina, feral hogs, Rio Grande turkeys and whitetails are everywhere.

And because the land is private and vast, these dense populations of game animals are minimally pressured and are more relaxed than any game I have ever encountered, except for Mexican critters. But only a fool would subject themselves to the evil dangers and corruption of the world’s most vile  government, and actually help finance the slaughter of innocents in Mexico. No thanks.

So BloodBrother and bowhunting/VidCamDude Bobby Bohannon and I returned to the fabled Kenedy with our BloodBrother Greg Curran and gang for another fantasy hunt.

Bobby and I prepared for venison liftoff. Unfortunately, bowhunting 101 was violated and we were directed to a brand new elevated box blind with too many windows that the deer had not become comfortable with, and all the bucks avoided it like the plague. Our first morning we were able to stealth into a big fat cactus donkey and I arrowed a pretty old she deer for Spirit of the Wild TV.

Having been boogered by some damn fine bucks that morning, we hurried to relocate our double ladderstand setup in the perfect cover for an afternoon ambush. They would never know what hit them.

We weren’t in our new killer stand very long when a sounder of eight hogs grunted their way into our grove. When a huge black sow got broadside, I managed to miss the quartering shot at thirty yards. But for what I may lack in accuracy, I more than make up for in tactics, and within two seconds, I zipped a perfect arrow into a fat brown boar.

Bobby is the best tracker I know, and he found where the coyotes dragged off my pig and he recovered what was left of the hams and straps at dark.

Two sets, two kills. This is fun.

At dawn the next morning, we were somewhat surprised to see a sounder of good looking hogs moving our way and got ready for pork. One giant, very tusky red boar was the only pig in the group that kept out of range, but after a long wait, he finally made the mistake of looking the other way, broadside, and I sent the prettiest arrow you ever did see smack dab into that pumpy crease.

With an instantaneous vicious snort, loud grunt and hyper squeal, the old warrior exploded through the scrub and tumbled porkchops over ham steaks in a swirling cloud of grey dust a short fifty yards yonder.

Big goofy grins on TV are a beautiful thing, and I couldn’t help myself as I ran to the fallen beast for TV recovery!

We hustled back into our tree, and like only South Texas can, it wasn’t long before deer could be seen skulking our way through the mesquite and live oak. Several does cautiously milled about snapping up kernels of corn, but were strangely fidgety for the area. As they moved off, three bucks appeared and took no time in stepping into the shooting zone. One real handsome eight point posed for a bowhunter education poster, and I obliged by giving it to him.

He tipped over right there with a severed central nerve, and I finished him instantly with another arrow.

More glowing celebration took place with Bobby and I feeling pretty pleased with ourselves. Ace bowhunter and guide Kris Helms fetched us a short time later, and we took care of the animals, had a good lunch and commenced to enjoy a live pigeon shoot into the afternoon.

Things didn’t go as planned on the afternoon set, with my most important arrow  of the season skimming low on a monster mature 150 class 10 pointer that brought painful consternation to our otherwise joyous hunt.

On our last morning with only an hour before departure from camp, we hit a distant thick area, corned the road, and settled in for a last ditch effort to try my brand new Ted Nugent Hunting Ammo.

Does filtered out of the forests, and then one heck of a dandy 10 point buck emerged from a few hundred yards. Bobby settled the vidcam and I anchored my GA Precision .270 on a solid rest as the bruiser followed the does closer and closer by the minute. At just under 200 yards, the big buck stood facing us and I told Bobby I was going to take him.

The 140 grain Nuge bullet slammed him dead center so hard, it throttled him straight up and back, flipping him up, over and upside down with only one or two kicks before he was still.

As we prepared to celebrate, a big doe darted out from the edge just beyond the buck, and Booby captured it on tape as my 2nd round found her heart, making a quick, perfect strapper double.

My new signature ammo proved itself, and we had pulled off a triple double. Two doe, two bucks and two hogs at the mighty Kenedy Ranch 2012. All is good in Tedland.

America has an Identity? Scratches/or the Land?

I wrote last about, Ted Nugents, “Be Ready” Blog.

PS:  to / about Scratches-e-Mail pictures of Scratches Blog I wrote:

I said it was a “SAD” commentary to see people are asking to see Scratches before buying something used,which is there right of course. It is not so much about that fact as it is ALL About America really not being ready for anything,except more Junk/Pretty items, to show off?.

Ted Nugent has it so right in many respects and I can see he is in touch with the Past? of America. Caring for the Buffalo and what was given us,that now we are pissing away.

There seems to be no  history to care about the Land being passed on,(except War history of fighting for the Land) in the USA anymore. People in other Countries love there land and  seem not so much worried about the “SCRATCHES” and crooked tiles in life. They “LIVE Life” and Fight for there Social Systems and community in some what better ways than we are doing in USA.

Is it that we care about Idiolising GOLD/Riches,Having property and Scratch free Bows/Trucks all the while looking over doing right by the Land and People?

We have no USA Country Sole as it where. We pray to “GOD” to win A football game? or thank “GOD” if we win, because we must have done right by the “Lord” to win, while the other team did not Pray long enough? So what is really going on?

It seems that we have no belonging here in US,but just for the Gold/Riches ,unlike the American Indian that had it right all along,being it is about the LAND and the People, not,”Scratched used Bows” as it where.

Other Countries have feeling towards there Land’s,Hunting and such affairs, but it seems that we do not spend much time with that thought and why is that? We fight for a better deal or more “PREFECT”  junk to have for  while, until it gets old or “Scratched” then out to the Garage sale or Dump it goes.

Can we all get along and start living the MANY , USA tribute songs, in a real way, to look past the Scratches with products and People that need our help. Then we can keep building up our Faith in US and the USA. Bring BACK! factories to help people have jobs,even lower end jobs, but YES! Jobs to do and to build up the Peoples Faith in USA.

Please stop e-Mailing pictures of “Scratches” and send pictures of Happy events to one another.

e-Mail picture of Scratch? LOL- “Ted Nugent Blog-“Be Ready”

www.Archerytalk.com: For Sale,Hunting Bow” 2011 Pse EVO is for sale w/scratch so small it will not picture.
Person writes,”Can you take a picture of the scratch and email it to taylorfootball_@hotmail.com ”
Ted Nugent write to be “ready” and yet some people are worried about a scratch on the bow they might buy?
LOL, is that not TO FUNNY,lol?
This country is so obsessed with Perfect that we miss the problems with getting things right. Used items have little scratches, but the problem is what about people starving out there,while some are looking@@ for scratch free used Bows?
Boy have we gotten off track in the good old USA ? or what?
Just adding a note about the insanity that is about “NOT BEING READY” as Ted Nugent writes,being, while we are looking for scratches, others are GETTING it done in the real world. People that are ready probably spend less time on “Scratches” and more time on a Real Life.
I grew up going to Ted Nugent concerts and I see why now,(coming from Full Blood Indian), it is all about the Land and being ready for what is going on. Little details need attention,with less time spent on “Scratches”. I see and shed a tear for what is seen,(trash) on the road side,while some are looking to get e-Mail pictures of Scratches sent to them,before they think of buying a used Bow.
Go Figure?
A”SAD” commentary on what is important for some in the USA today.
Please lets hear about your thoughts about, being “READY, IE: Ted Nugents Blog” and OR the e-Mail “Scratches” you are looking for, OR not in your life.

Scent control

Seems like everyone i talk to this topic has the most controversy, next to broadhead selection.  so for a little background of what people think of me in this aspect.  i am the most insane, over the top, crazy, over board, gone mad, out of my mind (all things i have heard numerous times) and none of which best describes better then ALL OUT hard core no scent freak.  i wash my sheets on my bed wash my sleeping bag when i travel wash my work cloths my everyday cloths and store all my stuff in scent lock bags.   i dont touch any of my cloths unless my hands have just been washed with no scent soap and after washing  my hands i walk to the dryer like i am going into surgery.  the dryer is wiped out with field wipes the washer is ran 2 time with only soap to clean it out b4 i even put my dirty cloths in it.   I take 1 shower every day and 2 showers 1 week b4 a hunt.  i use no scent soap all year long on everything…. The day of my hunt i wipe down with field wipes and then put on every product they make.  i put my cloths on in the field and spray down everything. 

But lets break this down a little bit an make it not seem so crazy.  everything i am doing is a lateral move.  i already have to do most of these things why not use no scent products? i already have to shower ,wash my cloths my sheets towels ext, why not use no scent products? do i think i can ever be 100 percent scent free, no way.. but can i be 80 or maybe 50 percent scent free heck ya i can……..AND this is the time everyone want to tell me a story about how they smoke in there blind and pee off there stand, take a boom boom under there feeder and still shot a monster buck……… ok…… well i pose the question how many MORE animals would you have seen if you weren’t doing those things.  maybe instead of sitting all week you might have shot that monster the first night, you never know.  then  i ask people, how much do u spend for money on a out of state hunt? almost always over 500 bucks on the low end.   then i ask if you could increase your odds of success by even 5 percent would you do it? they alway say yes, so why not be as scent free as possible.
