Blacktails and Bowhunting – The North American Deer Slam Completed

Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America (4th ed) (Hardcover)

This hardbound record book was published in 1993, and contains 510 pages of data. As a serious bowhunter, you certainly should want to obtain the various editions of the Pope & Young Club’s Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America. The 4th Edition contains a complete listing of over 22,000 entries accepted into the Records in the 32 categories of North American big game through December 31, 1992. This book features artwork by Leon Parson and text on a variety of subjects including the state of bowhunting and its future and values by Drs. David Samuel and C. Randall Byers, Bill Krenz and Jim Dougherty. Two chapters, one by Arthur Young, the other by Glenn St. Charles, take the reader back into another era – the dawn of hunting with a bow.

A Bowhunter Poses With a Pope & Young Record Class Columbian Black-tailed Deer Taken in Oregon With A Recurve Bow
A Great Day In the Northwest

 

Ray Seelbinder of Western Colorado has recently completed the North American Deer Slam  with his latest trophy – A Columbian Black-tailed Deer from Oregon. More impressively, he did it all with traditional archery tackle and a bow that he built himself.

It looks like a good one too.

Congratulations Ray! You are an inspiration to us all.

An Impressive Trophy, and a Great Looking Bow Too!

– Word Just In – It looks like this buck might just make the Pope & Young Record Book by about 1″ (green score). Hopefully, it won’t shrink much during the P&Y required waiting period. I’ll cross my fingers for Ray!

 

*The North American Deer Slam includes the fair chase harvest of a mule deer, white-tailed deer,  coues deer, black-tailed deer, and Sitka Deer.

**”Two forms of black-tailed deer or blacktail deer that occupy coastal woodlands in the Pacific Northwest are subspecies of the mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus). They have sometimes been treated as a species, but virtually all recent authorities maintain they are subspecies. The Columbian black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus columbianus) is found in western North America, from Northern California into the Pacific Northwest and coastal British Columbia. The Sitka deer (Odocoileus hemionus sitkensis) is found coastally in British Columbia, Southeast Alaska and Southcentral Alaska (as far as Kodiak Island).”  – Wikipedia
