I just got in some great pictures, and figured I’d get them up on the blog to kick off a reader photo archives.

AmywilliamsThe first is from Amy Williams of Howard, Ohio (her daughter Audrey is pictured with an antelope in our July Women’s issue). Amy has been hunting for about 20 years, and here’s what she had to say about her latest success story: “My husband and I were just on a brown and black bear hunt in SE Alaska! It was just an amazing trip—the hunting and fishing as well as the scenery. It was my first experience in hip boots, though. Interesting.

JudyblackThe second photo is from Judy Black, who also recently returned from a bear hunt in Canada: “The last night of the hunt, 15 minutes before it was time to leave my tree stand, I shot this monster with my BOW!!! Approximately 400 pounds, 7 feet tall, and the most beautiful chocolate brown color. It was a dream come true for me.

I just received some shots from a boar hunt too, so keep yours eyes open … I’ll post them soon.
