Default Well, my last night of season sucked....

Well, tonight pretty much sucked...I was in the stand for about an hour and a fawn walked by, and right behind her was a buck. Nothing special, but plenty good enough for me, as I have yet to get my first deer with a bow. As he walked by at 19 yards, I drew back. I got just about to where my bow broke over the draw cycle and hit the let-off point, and BAM, my arrow took off in to the trees....my freakin' D-loop broke...I was just about ready to throw my bow out of the tree....

Oh well, I guess I'll try again next year....

Now I get to pop a doe with my rifle, as our firearms antlerless season starts tomorrow..

I've had more than one person ask what's the difference between bow hunting and photography? Thanks for "things that can wrong" #56.

Good luck with the does

I had my peep tube break and slap me in the face the other day, so I bought a G5 Meta peep. Goodluck with the rifle.
