Hunting is my most loved activity and of that, bow hunting is the best! I have hunted everything from squirrels to an elk that I tagged about 7 years ago. That was a RUSH ! ! I know arrows are deadly but the one I shot fell less than 40 yards from where he was hit. I got a clean heart shot and when we opened him up, his heart was detached from the blood vessels. It took me almost half an hour to stop shaking after I shot him.
Only 11 days to start of rifle deer season. I couldn’t get it together for archery this year. Am happy to feel good enough to hunt with rifle. Especially with the sons.
I have a seriously great offer by a former employer. He has retired in Montana and has a very large ranch that is crawling with any type of game you care to hunt. That is where I killed my elk 7 years ago. He has invited my sons and I to archery season for Elk next year. I have been scraping money together for a bow and think I found a good deal on a friend’s bow. He does not feel the urge to hunt anymore and was talking about selling it to me for a really cheap price. I have shot it before and it is awesome shooting. It is a Hoyt but I cannot remember the name. Has a carrying case and on dozen brand new arrows that have only been shot about 20-30 times for most of them and 4 that have never been shot.
One son is interested and wants to go with me. The other son does not like shooting bow so it will be just one son and me. I’ll take it ! .
Let the countdown begin ! Jerry
