Halloween Buck 2002

While hunting in Buffalo County Wisconsin on October 31, 2002, I arrowed this eight point Halloween buck at about 3:15pm with my Mathews Q2XL. The buck was chasing a doe by my tree and offered a standing front quartering shot at 18 yards. It is for sure the best Halloween treat I’ve had so far!

Whitetail Image


Thanks Mathews! This past year I was lucky enough to harvest yet another great Illinois Whitetail. After a long drive from Montana to my birth state of Illinois, I was rewarded with a 12 yard shot at this 184" 232# Whitetail. My legacy delivered and the nobe buck traveled only about 80 yards. Even though… Continue Reading →

First Pope & Young

My First Pope and Young I took this 152 3/8 inch whitetail in Mississippi. The buck would only present a shot quartering towards me at over 35 yards. I felt confident with my Mathews Q2, so I took the shot. The silence and power behind these bows is unbelieveable. Thanks to my Mathews bow I… Continue Reading →

2002 Bull Elk

I had finally drew an elk tag and after hunting 9 days this was the day we had to pack it up and go home. It was about 7:00 am when we decided to make on last bugle and head to another area. To our surprise that was the magic bugle. We heard a deep… Continue Reading →

After my husband, Steve, had observed this herd of elk taking the same path night after night, longtime friend Jeremiah Upp and I positioned ourselves along the trail. About one hour before dark the action began, there were bulls bugling everywhere! This particular bull came right to Jeremiahs calls, and as he turned to leave,… Continue Reading →
