Early this morning around 4am as the sun was comming up I decided to go for my final hunt for the year, about 15mins into my normal route I noticed a heavy movement 70 meters ahead comming from a small patch of scrub!!!!
With the wind in my face and the taste of the morning dew still wet on my tounge I went the stalk and slowly but
moved in for the kill!!! It was at this point I noticed a strong and over powering stench that was now being gently blown into my nostrils from the slight breeze!
What was this strange new smell??? As a hunter of some stature and years of experiance in the Australian Outback, I even was at a loss??? Was it a monster Red Deer Buck-No, Was it a Monster Boar-No, An Enormous Red Kangaroo -I don't think so, It was the very rare and very dangerous ""Kilcoy Yowie"
in all my years of hunting I have never even seen Tracks little lone sighted one, and here it was only meters away from me and it was totally unaware of my presence!!!! The closer I stalked in, the more over powering the stench became almost with a hint of Potato, now holding my breath and trying not to give my position away!!!! My 85#Mathews Monster and my Gt's 7595 extreme hunters supplied buy D.B were is he now???? Trembling in my hand I drew the 85# bow with ease using my true-fire 360 realise aid!!!! My Viper .010 Diamondback lit up like a Christmas tree, the QAD Ultrarest now loaded and taught with anticipation of the kill shot now ahead!!!!
huge body glistened in the early morning light. It almost was too easy to shoot this,huge but exquisite animal!!!!WHACK
as I fired a huge beercost interfered with my shot and the Yowie
only slightly injured, escaped off across the creek and into the wilderness crying O-PUCK,O-PUCK,O-PUCK, never to be seen again????
At 12.30pm EST I recived a knock on my door ,2 LARGE
Policemen wanted to know if I'd been out hunting this morning and been using my bow???? I replied why yes!!!! I was using my Mathews Monster 85# bow with my Gold Tip 7595 arrows cut at 30"'s,my trusty never fail Tru-Fire 360 release and my Axion stabiliser with QAD rest and Viper sight With .010 pins had taken a shot at a YOWIE
!!!! At this point they explained to me that infact I had taken a shot at a Large Hairy Irish immigrant namedPADDY O'PUCK
who was now Homeless !!!!! He was infact taking a Bath for Christmas before heading down for lunch at a local shelter, he recalls being shot in the @$$ with an arrow and then taking off into the scrub as fast as possible!!!!! At this point I denied all knowledge of the incident and said that a bloke from Manning Iowa AKA Carpshooter had been staying with me for a few weeks and along with others whom I only new as Longcut36, Gatoreye, Holy Smokes, Compound Comedian and Bunnyman and they all had headed out early for a hunt!!!!They asked for details and I was happy to provide them with A.T web address and postal address as well. I guess that will be my last hunting post before Christmas 2011 and remember deny everything! That's not SANTA who's knocking on your Door???Ffor sure it'll be the Cops looking to pin this on you guys
,So good luck and Merry Christmas,you're going to need it!!!!!!
