Video: Two Youth Hunters Tag Three Animals in One Night — Sharing One Bow!

The setting is a water source in the Colorado wilderness, and two youth hunters are hiding in a pop-up blind. What happens in the hour before dark has to be seen to be believed.

Video: Two Youth Hunters Tag Three Animals in One Night — Sharing One Bow!

Well-known bowhunter Fred Eichler completed the North American Super Slam in 2009, the first to do so with a recurve bow. (Click here to check out the new-for-2023 Fred Eichler Signature Series Take Down recurve from Bear Archery.) Fred and his family operate Fulldraw Outfitters, which offers top-notch guided and non-guided big game hunts (turkey, too) in Colorado. 

Fred certainly could tell endless stories about his bowhunting experiences. That said, the one highlighted in the Facebook video would likely rank near the top of his hunting memories, and he wasn’t even in the field when it happened. 

Shown below is a Colorado bowhunt filmed by Fred’s two oldest sons, Jeb and Seth. The young hunters kill not one, not two, but THREE animals in one night — while sharing the same bow!

Note: As Fred explains later in the video, this bowhunt was 100 percent fair chase (no high fence, etc.). His boys are simply fortunate that on this night, the elk and mule deer wanted a drink, and a well-positioned pop-up blind overlooking this particular water tank was the spot on the spot.
