Archery is addicting especially in the form of hunting. I'm 26 and have been hunting for 10. I never understood why bowhunt when it's hard enough with a gun? Now I dread gun season and bowhunt through it! Needless to say last year it began in 2007, I bought an older bowtech tomkat fully setup on ebay then a halfdozen goldtip arrows and muzzy broadhead from my local bowshop. Turnsout a halfdozen is not enough and lumenoks are worth their weight in gold! So after the frustrating beginners misses and going through my entire quiver at turkeys. Finally my first bowkill happened, not the turkey I defeathered, not the doe I shaved but a BOBCAT I thwacked in the head. Simply amazing must of jumped 6 straight feet in the air! First bowkill my trophy of a lifetime, or so I thought? Turns out next year opening day was when I bagged that one trophy of a lifetime. 11/15/08 Opening morning in MO I took my girlfriend to her grandparents land were we put two hanging stands, knowing that it would be the hunt of a lifetime regardless of the hunt. She held in there untill 9am, Her feet were cold, but mine were not so as i started down the tree I pulled the ring out my vest and proposed, she said yes but I probably should of left her safety harness on! We both got down safely went to cross the creek and I found a perfect arrowhead! Then she wanted to show off that ring so I had her drop me off back in the deer woods and ended up thumping some turkeys! Even with one tom having a 14 inch beard I knew my trophy is my wife to be,the one who puts up and participates in this obsession of mine.:set1_tango2:
