Hunting hard to the very end, Roy, his guide and wife Shelby gave it everything they had to try and get on a good Sitka buck. The weather didn’t help, the game didn’t cooperate but they didn’t give up.

The stream banks were covered with salmon that had been partially eaten by bears and eagles. It’s a little spooky seeing that sight as you walk along a stream bank that is covered by thick vegetation, a great hiding place for bears.
The Keefer’s, Roy and Shelby are off on another adventure. This time it’s for Sitka blacktail in Kodiak, Alaska, another one of the game animals on Roy’s Bucket List.
Roy and Shelby Keefer have taken their bowhunting seriously. They also take their equipment seriously and that is why they wear Sitka Gear when following their hunting adventures.

The basic device is a cable system which attaches to the limbs on your bow. As you turn the jack screw it shortens the cable and gently pulls the bow limbs inward releasing pressure as it goes. Once you have the bow relaxed, you can install a peep sight or change the strings.
