Hunters have success

Wes Clyde of Carson City got his cow elk with a bow and arrow in big game management area No. 111 (near Ely).

Brian Bennett of Ely, son of Carl Bennett of Carson City, missed an antelope at very close range in area No. 111. He said, "He just blew it." Joy Bennett, Brian's wife, got her cow elk with a bow and arrow. She is obviously the better shooter of the two archers.

Gene Couste of Carson City had a great archery shot at a trophy 5x5 buck mule deer in Northern Washoe County. His arrow hit the buck in the antlers and the deer is still running.

Jim Davis of Carson City and Jim Blueberg of Washoe Valley drew archery deer tags for area No. 162. They hunted in the Toquima Range area, south and east of Austin, and did not see very many deer.

Joel Dunn of Carson City was archery hunting on Aug. 6 in area No. 111, where he was within 40 feet of a trophy buck mule deer. He drew his arrow back, took careful aim, shot, and hit a tree dead center. The deer ran off, the tree did not.

Brian Hubkey of Douglas County got his archery antelope with one shot at 25 yards in area No. 11. The buck had 14 inch long horns and a green Boone & Crockett score of 73 3/4 points.

Nate Johnston of Douglas County on his first-ever archery elk hunt in area No. 111 got a cow elk.

Leo and Annette Mankins of Carson City went scouting for deer in the Hinkey Summit area. They saw lots of bighorn sheep, but not very many deer.
