I hunted two days on the big island of Hawaii, Tuesday, November 5th and Wednesday, November 6th. I started each morning at the Ka’Ohe GMA at 5:30 am.


 -
Each day, I ended up at mile marker 45 (Saddle Rd) where I had spotted goats from the highway. Many failed stalks; however, I never got discouraged – I was having too much fun! By noon, on day two, I had run out of water and was exhausted. I decided to head back to the car and call it a day. I was satisfied and grateful for the privilege of the chase. Then, I got lucky.


 -
Bloody arrow; complete pass through!


 -
View from arrow. I came to full draw from behind the rock in the distance. I’m 6’ 2”, 230 lbs; the rock was 6 feet tall and kept me well hidden.


 -
30 yard recovery. These are wild Hawaiian goats, no farm animals here. Their senses are keen and very alert, much like our Whitetail deer.


 -
Horne’s Traditionalist longbow, 68”, 55# @ 31”, 550 grain carbon arrow, Zwickey 2-blace broadhead.


 -
Entrance wound from inside chest cavity.


 -
Exit wound.

To tracker12 - I have an airline carry, hard case designed for fishing poles; it's called the Bazooka Pro by Flambeau.

Thanks Shan, good to hear from you. Chasing turkeys in Santa Ynez, no luck yet - just blisters! I'm still open for Vandenberg. Cody got hired by North County Fire Dept (Oceanside/Encinitas).
