Forister Exotics Blackbuck Hunts

hi-kids-bb

A parents incentive for good grades and good behavior, not that this young man needs incentive for either but a deal is a deal no less. After a year of Straight A’s Doug brought his son out to harvest a Blackbuck. This young man practices with his cross bow on a regular basis and is a crack shot!! after a couple sits and numerous close encounters this Blackbuck finally decided to stand quartering long enough to allow Brennan to smoke a bolt right through the pocket! After a very short tracking job this young man had his Trophy Blackbuck in hand and a huge smile on his face!

The Judge has been taking a few animals off the old bucket list and this trip it was a Trophy Mouflon Ram. After looking over several specimens we finally decided to take “A SHOT” at this great Trophy Mouflon and the Judge made a heck of a shot and dropped him. Congrats Judge on great Trophy Mouflon and I know you will enjoy him hopefully for many more years!

A great Axis Buck taken on a mid summer archery hunt. We hunted hard and endured the heat but this Great Axis Buck finally gave in to the need for Water and taken at 40 yards. After a quick tracking job we found him piled up and proceeded to take pictures and headed to the skinning rack. Congrats on a great summer time Axis Archery hunt!

Down to Blackbuck

Brody blackbuck

After a long morning chasing Axis this Blackbuck made the mistake of standing around to long. Brody was after Axis but had mentioned if we could get on a good Blackbuck also he might take one as well. The group this guy was running with ran into the cedar so I dropped Keith and Brody off and told them I would make a lap around the brush and they should come back out in the open. They did just what we wanted to just never held still before they made their way out of the clearing and down into the canyon. Keith knew the steep terrain would slow them down a little so he and Brody took off to the edge to try and catch up. As we waited at the top of the hill we finally heard the gun bark and the slap of a well placed shot. We made our way down to the scene in the buggy and snapped a few pics and loaded this nice Blackbuck up to take him to the cleaning shed. Congrats Brody on a good Blackbuck.

Archery Axis Spot and Stalk

Bryan axis 1

Axis hunting is often times hard enough to pull off with a rifle, When this hunter said lets get one with a bow I knew we had our work cut out for us. We put Bryan in a couple different stands the first couple of hunts knowing we had axis on camera feeding at these locations I knew it would be our best shot. After a couple different sits and seeing tons of different animals the axis where just not going to play our game. Mid morning last full day to hunt we decided to break out the rifle and try to safari style one. We had ran across this buck a couple times and just couldn’t get him to stand long enough to get a shot. After the third time of losing him I knew where he went I told Bryan its a long shot but grab your bow I think we can get behind him and with this wind we might be able to get close enough. We made our way to the cedar and with the rain earlier in the morning I could see tracks leading down to an opening where the fence cornered. I hoped this was where he was headed, I told Bryan to post up on the trees about 40 yards from the fence and I would swing wide and hopefully turn the buck back to him. The plan came together when this Trophy Axis broke into the clearing and stopped at 10 yards. Bryan stuck one through the boiler and the rest is history. Congrats Bryan on a great buck!
