    2019 Mexico hunt

    Well here's the story, ill keep it short with pics. Went down this year for the first time, what a great experience. I met a couple great guys here on CWT that were looking for a few guys to hunt a ranch in Sonora Mexico, we talked and sounded like a great experience. So paper work and gun permits followed. . The time had come to go on the hunt, 1/05/19 -1/21/19. We met at Chad's place at 5am ( my friend Cecil and I ) loaded up and met the rest of the group, 8 in all The trip down was good, a little slow at the border checking on the Mexico side for the guns and had to unload extra Suzuki vehicles and drive thru check point and re load. Great from there , 60 miles down and then 2 hrs on dirt rd. back to the north to the ranch. Arrived about 3pm and met the ranchers and hands, if I could spell there names I would but I don't want to disrespect them by butchering there names. Great people for sure. That evening Jayson and Chad showed us the lay if the land. I thought it looked like the Matazal's foot hills and all. I knew I'd be right at home. The food was so good, lodging was super, hot water heat, clean was awesome . Started early Sunday morning after a great breakfast by momma . Then it was of to the hill, rained quite a bit that morning, saw some great bucks but it was the first day, dumb move, my buddy had a chance at a dandy but passed. He should of shot, he ended up with a 1x2 second to the last day. First buck he was stoked, a had 10 opportunities thru out the week at some big ones. He's learning how to shoot folded in half, steep stuff. So the week went on with some great bucks shoot. By the time I knew it was Friday and we just got Cecil done. . Saturday was it , I had to find something decent. Jayson and Chad and rancher Lupe went on a journey. I almost got a shoot at one I had been chasing but safety was on and he was gone. We moved further up the foot hills and started glassing, let me tell you those Swarovski BTX are crazy. Chad found lots of good bucks but they wouldn't stay still long enough to get a shot. Yes they were rutting hard. Then he found one a mile + away. We made a plan and went for it. After 1 hr hike we were within 700 yds.. Set up and found his does, then a great buck ran up to us at 20yrds, tried to get a shot, not easy with a 25x scope on a running buck that close, he never took his nose of the ground. Anyway my buck stud up and the shooting started, after 4 shoots with the 6.5 Creedmoor I went to Chad's 300rum, 2 more misses. Ranged again , my Zeiss range finder was still saying 655 yrds I was dead on left to right just couldn't tell if I was just high barely going under him. We broke out a Swarovski range finder , the same. Then a Vortex Jayson had, it said 705yrds, dialed it up and bam, he's on the ground doing the right stuff. . took the long walk over and found blood and guts but no deer, Chad said he thought he saw a buck get up and walk down into the thicker brush. Ray the cowboy came over and his dog jumped him up and he went around the corner, they found him days after we left. I put a bounty on him for incentive. It worked. They found him 60yrds from where I shoot him , shoot was a couple inches back. Ended up meeting Carlos at the border a few days later and collected my buck. I was shocked he was bigger then I thought. A big thankyou to Chad and Jayson two great guys , can't wait until next year. Here are some pictures from pick up to the wall. There's one picture of him with a 95" buck. One picture with his new friend's, and one of the biggest buck taken by Jim., congrats on a stud

  4. I recently found out that a long time Az. Hunter, friend, and Guide, Robin Wills Bechtel Passed away. Robin achieved many awards, I believe the big 9, and Heads and horn plus many many B&C entries along with his wife Billie. I met him in 1992 when he was a B&C scorer. He scored both mine and my brothers Kaibab Bucks. In the years to come I accompanied him on several hunts, the Az. Kaibab, Nevada, Wyoming, and the San Juan Elk ridge in Utah. { Photo is from my Utah hunt with Robin on the left.} He was probably the best hunter that I have ever known. He was awesome on field Judging horns. I believe Robin also did 2 or 3 tours in Viet Nam as a Navy Seal. My condolences to Billie and the Bechtel family, One of the things I will always remember is him naming a Big Buck in the Kaibab the " FACS" Buck. I asked him why the "FACS" Buck? He replied... Fuckin a cock-sucker.

  21. 1. Penetration Capability: For an effective hunting experience, bone-crushing and penetration capacity are the most dependable factors for the broadheads. Hunting will be distressing without these 2 elements. For avoiding deflection, the “clean cuts” are definitely essential while shooting the target since you do not desire the bolt to jump out of the animal. 2. Flight Trajectory: No to mention, as described above the big blades are greatly affected by the wind so you must consider this before purchasing. If your nearly all shots are low range as much as 20 – 40 yards then they are not affected by the wind significantly. In that factor, Mechanical broadheads provide more straightness. At the time of spinning if the broadhead deflects then you could check out the alignment of broadheads or tune the blades by utilizing spin tester. 3. Sharpness Of The Blades: The term “Sharpness” in hunting explains the significance of itself. Not forgetting, you must ask these questions yourself before buying any heads are that: How long the integrity last? How merely may it be sharpened? Do blades remain razor-sharp after a number of shots? 4. The Blood Trails: The blood trails left behind can be the important consideration. The “fixed-blades” provide deep penetration however quite low blood trails and for sure, “mechanical blades” possess a huge benefit over the fixed blades. On the other hand, several fixed blades provide good outcomes in that factor. Judging by all these 4 factors, we have outlined a few of the great products. By determining your needs you can choose the Best Fixed Blade broadheads for elk which fit your needs more.
