In 2014 Rob Foulton hunted and shot three species of Exotic and Wild Rams here at Silvertine. During his travels around the property we continualy bumped into massive whitetailbucks and fallow bucks< well the fire was burning and re-booked for a trophy whitetail hunt and fallow hunt. Last week Rob was very successful as he harvested a WHOPPER 263" whitetail and not one but TWO trophy fallow bucks, a light colored and dark colored ginger. Congratulations my friend and looking forward to hunting with you next year. Yes he re-booked for more fallow deer and a few more rams . . . . and maybe a whitetail you never know, his willpower is not too strong when there is massive Silvertine buck standing in front of him! Haha!
One of my best friends Sandy Bowman returned yet again for one of his annual hunts here at Silvertine. This year bringing with him Damian and Olivia and his son Riley. Olivia and Riley shot their first elk, two great management bulls. Then Sandy had some fun himself and took a 230" Whitetail Buck, an Aoudad Ram, and a Huge Bison Bull. A great hunt was had by all and the weather was like Club Med. Stay posted as Sandy, Damian, Olivia, and Riley and three other hunters are returning for a second hunt the end of October for Whitetails....should be a bonanza!
Well here is a photo of the largest Whitetail deer Silvertine has ever grown . . . 338", yes that is not a type-o! This wild non-typical was a 22X19 pointer with an amazing 15" drop club on one side, along with two other drop tines, stickers, 26" beams, and base measurements of 6.5" and 9.5". This buck is amazing and his antler weight is unbelievable. The hunter whom wants to remain anonymous has allowed us to use a photo of Yogi with his deer.
BIG BISON Bulls deserve BIG Photos. My good friend (and brother) Filippo returned for his third trip to Silvertine this year. He told me two years ago after killing the world record archery roosevelt elk, to find me a BIG Bison Steve, one well over 20" on the horn, this is what I want! Well here it is, 22 X 15" on both horn and scored over 74" SCI, plus he took it with his favorite trusty Hoyt Bow that the airlines almost lost. Fillipo you did an amazing job on this bull, hunting bison with a bow is not one of my favorite hobbies, I have seem it go sideways many times, but with years of practice and studying shot placement, it all paid of when the moment of truth presented itself on this MONSTER Woods Bull. You should be proud of your accomplishment and proud of your skills. It's always a pleasure to hunt with you my friend and I am looking forward (and looking hard) for that MONSTER Plains Bull for your 2017 Hunt.
Andrew James was my first elk hunter of the season, and he set the bar quite high for the rest of my guests to try and beat. The weather was hot, and the smoke from the forest fires to the north of us kept visibility limited. We did manage to locate a group of nice bulls on the afternoon of the second day, and Andrew was able to thread a shot through the thick bush and knocked down a gorgeous 440" bull! Way to go Andrew, great job. A note to the rest of my elk hunting guests coming, there is far more bulls out there like this one . . . .
Bigelow Family started our season with 10 kills in 3 days. 4 Rams, 4 Turkeys, one Watusi Bull, and one huge wild boar. Scott, Chelsey, Audie, and Cindy were a blast to hunt with, and there was no shortage of arrows sent, and bullets blasted. Scott made the killf the week by arrowing the pending world record Corsican at 42", congrats Scott! Enjoy the photos!
The heat was more than we would have liked and the harvest on Mosquito's was out of this world, but they are getting less and less with each day. I am very excited about the elk harvests coming up as there is some amazing huge bulls out there and we are extending some super low upgrade rates to our booked guests.
