Upon close inspection, it seemed as the arrow snapped as the nanny jumped down from the rock. The blood trail was good and eventually we found the front end of her arrow.

The blood trail led us right to the downed nanny. Both of us were relieved and elated. It's been a few years since she hunted with her recurve and this was the season that she decided to transition back.
A quick story of her transition back. http://tradgang.com/noncgi/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=152899;p=1

The day didn't end there as this is what we found right before sundown. Keep in mind, in this area, we're lucky if we see a hog during the entire season.

Here's a screen shot of a short video that I filmed right after we finished deboning the hog. It was a rough walk out by flashlight, but it was well worth it and you couldn't wipe the smiles off of our faces. [Big Grin]

As mentioned earlier the entire hunt of week 7 will be shared on The Push Podcast. I think it'll be fun as I've never shared a hunting story on a podcast before and Tim and Matt are such fun guys to chat with.

Aloha Gang!

Great story I look forward to the pod cast. I was at the box a day after this adventure took place and saw your log. My reaction was an audible " No Way!" Super stoked for you guys.

Mahalo Mike!
Yeah we really got lucky that day.
BTW, I just watched the video this morning. Awesome stuff! [clapper] That's a "trophy" in my eyes! It's a tough hunt and I've seen guys with compounds struggle up there. You make it look easy. [Wink] You're a Stud up in those mountains. I watched you climb down one of the ridges a few weeks back.

Thank you for taking care of the land! [thumbsup]

*Mike is one of the good guys who takes the time to pack out rubbish that's left behind by others and it's definitely not an easy pack back to the truck.

Aloha Bruddah Mike!

As much as I'd like to say AT LEAST one day of hunting, it just isn't in the cards this trip. It'll just be about fishing as much as humanly possible...which isn't a bad trade off at all.
