My first year... traditional only..
« on: December 12, 2009, 08:04:00 AM »
I've taken some does in years past after harvesting my buck with a compound.  This is the first year I decided to hunt trad only..  I'm so confident with my Centaur I bought off of warden609 that the Matthews is in the closet now!!!

A recap of my KY season so far...  Centaur 50#, Carbon Express Maxima Hunter 250, 50 grain brass inserts, Magnus Stinger and Bullhead.. The squirrel was taken with a bludgeon and flu flu at 20 yards... wouldn't quit barking at me....

Great pics and congrats!!!!
 I gotta ask, how much more relaxed are you with archery, now that you don't have so many gadgets to tune?   :bigsmyl:

Thanks everyone!

Arwin, I've always been relaxed.  I enjoyed hunting with the compound as well, killed hundreds of deer with them.  My range is much shorter now, the thing I like is a lot less junk to pack with me while hunting!!!

The mystical flight of the arrow is a special thing, as many know.  You just dont get that feeling with sights, release aids, etc..
