Grumley Deerslayer on November 2, 2010

Hunting with a DeerSlayer is as traditional as you can get. I was fortunate that a friend, Norman Kache, from Wisconsin sold me this great bow made by Nel’s Grumley in approximately 1935/44. Some 70 years later the bow shoots as well now as it did then as the craftsmanship surpasses most traditional bows that are made today. I have to admit, it took a lot of courage to string this great bow and shoot it. My mind drifts back to who strung and shot it last and did this bow ever harvest a nice buck somewhere in Wisconsin or Michigan?

There is a piece of tape on the bow with the name Jim Schilstra, 816 Ash Street, Baraboo, Wisconsin, also a logo from the Tip Top Sport Shop, Reedsburg, Wisconsin.

I had hunted with the Deerslayer 21 days over 2 years. I let numerous does and small bucks pass before taking this buck.

Take a step back in time when hunting was simple, a wood bow, wood arrows, turkey feathers, woodsman ship, wood smoke, pawed acorns, the fall smell of drying leaves, the twitch of a deer’s tail and the gobble of a wild turkey.


Good Hunting,


Rich Tiberio, GraylingDeerSlayer
