A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

I really do not know what the camo pattern was on those older ExoMax bows?

The wolverine was shot with a 22 caliber pistol, and at about 3 feet.
Had a Carry Permit (Biologist) in those days, and simply happened to have the pistol in a pocket of my snowmobile suit.
Wolverine was coming down from the hills to raid the cabins on a long point off the Yukon that sticks out into the Beaufort Sea.
When he saw me, he snarled, then charged. :shock:
Damn happy I had the little pocket gun!
Even happier the first shot took him in the forehead! :wink:

Made a nice backdrop for that bow...

Dang Nog, you're either an incredibly lucky guy or one helluva a marksman! I doubt one person in a million could nail a charging wolverine between the eyes with a pistol! Or even hit it at all!

Pretty cool!
