Our 100th Post! Ryan Dastrup's 2012 Archery Buck

Ryan Dastrup (L) and Zach Owens
When I started Southern Utah Hunt and Fish back in November, I thought it would just be a fun project that would keep me busy in the winter, and had my doubts that it would ever really amount to much!  But here we are, 10 months later with our 100th post!  We now have almost 400 likes on Facebook, and nearly 600 followers on Twitter!  We are so stoked about what this site has become, and it would be nothing without our fans!  In fact, to show our appreciation, in light of our 100th post we will be looking to hold a giveaway on the site very soon!  Please continue to share with your friends.  If you haven't done so, check out our Facebook page where you will often find photos, information, and updates posted that you will not see right here on our site: www.facebook.com/suhuntandfish

I also want to mention our amazing advertisers that you will see located in the right sidebar.  They have been such a great support of SUH&F as well!  Be sure to check them out for great gear and products!  Thank you Vortex Optics. Rusty Lures, Timberline Range Camps, TrackMyTrophies, and Shed Inc.  Our advertisers can also be found on Facebook!  You guys are the best!

Anyway, we will save major celebration until we hit our 1 year mark in November.  We are also looking at some big changes with our growth, as we look to improving the site drastically, and may even add an online
store. 

 Let's get back to what you came for!  Check out these pictures sent into me by Ryan Dastrup of his 2012 archery buck.  This buck was taken on public lands, within a general unit, and what a great buck.  I'm trying to get in touch with Ryan to get a few more details about his hunt, and when I do I'll update this with the story, so please check back!  For now, check out these pictures of Ryan's great archery buck.  One detail I do know is that Ryan had to leave the buck overnight and come back the next morning with friends Zach Owens and Mike Marshall.  When they found the buck, coyotes had found it during the night and managed to eat the entire back quarters off of the buck!  I have left a lot of deer overnight for retrieval the next day myself.  I can tell you that I will now rethink that in the future, and I do have to say that makes me feel pretty good about having that $50 bounty on coyotes now. 

Good job Ryan, what an accomplishment, and thanks for sharing with us!  Hopefully we will hear more of the story soon!

Great article!! This stands true for first time hunters of any age. It’s the experience that makes or breaks their decision to continue. http://elitehuntsman.com
