5x5 in New Mexico

"My fall success continues and I arrowed this nice 5x5 in New Mexico last week during the rifle season! 25 yard pass-thru that ripped a rib in half on the way out but I was a little back on the shot - caught a lung and some liver. Took three long shots and I was able to get another arrow in him at 58 yards....drilled him right behind the shoulder quartering away and the Maasai struck so hard it buried into the opposite shoulder. The shaft broke but I recovered the head and reloaded it onto a new shaft. Recovered the other missed shots and the arrows/heads are in perfect shape - just needed a little sharping. I am off to Saskatchewan on Saturday bow hunting for Whitetail. I was planning to switch back to my normal speed setup - lighter arrows and broadhead (Easton Axis/Nap 100) but after success on Brown Bear and Elk I figure I may as well keep the current setup going. It would be amazing if I can tag another animal using my GrizzlyStiks and Maasai heads. Only problem...I'm starting to run low on arrows (Lol). But it only takes one!" All the best, Derek M. Gentile

Big thanks to my go to AZ guide Casey and the rest of the crew at Vaquero Outfitters."[...]
