Thunderstick MOAB - 64@28.  I named the bow tines because the veneers I used was to represent all the colors of 'Tines' that we chase - Tamo Ash.  259#s on the hoof GA dear.

Same old 65# Hunter. 2219 and Ace. Pretty good quartering 10 yard shot. Full penetration and good blood trail blowing out both sides.

This was the present my wife gave me our first Christmas together as husband and wife. Makes me happy to still use it to fill the freezer. And I’m pretty happy I can still draw it!
