Guys, lemme tell you a little something about TJ.  I've been lucky enough to have hunted w/ Tom for over a decade now and have learned a ton from him in the process.  We hit it off the day we met and have hunted together ever since.  He is a modest bowhunter that has never wants any fame or recognition for taking many "above" average animals w/ a bow.  Patient and silently deadly on his feet that can only be described as cat like.
I was sooo glad to see him lay down his compound and join me in trad archery.  His 1st trad kill was a doe in my backyard....poor fawns hung around for over a month lookin for momma..LOL., but from the point in time that he released that arrow and watched the fletching dissapear in her ribs in slowmotion he has been hooked on the sitckbow.  When he shot that doe....you'd of thought he had just killed another B&C buck...his eyes were HUGE and all he could keep saying was "That was freaking awesome!"  

I can honestly say that Tom has surpassed my knowlege of trad bows and setups.  He's flat eat up with it!  He lives and breathes trad arechery from the time he wakes up till he goes to bed. Some day I expect he may even be able to outshoot me..LOL., but I'm won't hold my breath on that one....
A talanted photographer, dog trainer, and hunter.  Loving father, husband, and friend.

Great fried to have that will do everything in his power to not let you down!  I hope to be dragging many more deer in the years to come w/ this guy, but hope he starts shooting smaller ones as my back doesn't like these anymore.LOL.

Year ain't done yet Tom...hope you're still coming out this weekend.  We're moving stands tomorry afternoon.  Time to shoot some does together!

Hey TJ, Excellant season so far and excellant thoughts on our Deer management here in Ky. I would agree 100%. After reading your post I was remembering when I started hunting back in the 70's when a 110"-120" class deer was considered a monster. Back then it was also common to see a nice 6 point hung on the wall as a true trophy. Ky. has done a good job, but I think if they could implement your thoughts about season changes, it would only get better.

Nice buck! I may have missed it, how big is the place you hunt? I could go for years without even a sighting of a buck like that, hunting 15 and 20 acre spots really doesn't allow  you to be as picky.

Man Tom, AWESOME!  I have the great fortune of owning Tom's old BW SAII that he took so many deer with.  I feel like I own a piece of his big buck "mojo" but I just can't figure out how to get it to rub off on me!  Maybe I need to get that Morrison from you too and then it will start to kick in.. Tom, you sellin?    ;)    ;)    ;)
