Bowhunter's Success at Timber Life

This year the property owners of the area adjacent to Timber Life have made an alliance in an attempt to take control of outsiders hunting without permission.

Before bowhunting started we  granted permission to a young man named Mason Loftus, referred to us by a mutual friend ; he also has a working relationship with a neighbor to the East. Mason placed a stand for the Deer Bowhunting season in a secluded part of the timber where a couple of properties are within view of a common fenceline.

Sunday, November 15th ,Mason gave us a call to let us know he was going to be coming out , a request we made when we agreed to let him hunt. It helps us to know who will be where and when.

In the late afternoon Mason came to the house to show us what he shot to fill his doe tag. Before it gets to be ancient news I wanted to  Congratulate him on his harvest. We are hoping that he will return to fill his buck tag come the next Bow Season.... I am hoping he will write his own account of his experiences to post here in the future. ;)

Congrats to him! I bet he was excited hunting on a new piece of property and to get a doe as well.

Simply Outdoors and The Hunter's Wife, Mason did get himself a good looking mature doe. We would be glad to have him come back to hunt in his season.

Rick and Marian - Thanks! Mason was sucessful at harvesting a nice doe...He also trains dogs to follow blood trails for Bowhunters. Makes it easier to track in dense brush, which is a characteristic we have around here.

I hope he will decide to return next year.
