cheap bow and broken arrow
« on: November 05, 2012, 08:27:00 PM »
About a month ago, while driving through town, I came across a yard sale that had an old bear grizzly recurve and I picked it up for 10.00.  After getting a string on it, and shooting it quite a few evenings, I really wanted to take a deer with it.  I normally hunt with a thunderstick III, but was determined to get it done before this season ended with the grizzly.  

Well, this evening I went to a spot I had picked out where two deer trails intersected before going into an open field, and hunkered down behind a cedar blow down.  Wasn't there for 5 minutes, when I doe came blazing in with a nice buck in hot pursuit.  Thought I would leave the buck for my son to get a crack at, and stuck the doe from 8 yards out.  

Pics aren't very good, took them with my cell phone.

 

 

 .

Now it's time to go back to the longbow.  Thanks for looking.

Gotta love it when a plan comes together. Now if your son can get that buck it will be complete. Congrats brother. Well done.

For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.

Congratulations !!!
You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!

:thumbsup:  Congrats!
An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward.So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it's going to launch you into something great.
