Congrats, it is addictive.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Never put yourself down about a legal kill you've made. Congratulations on hunting the hard way and putting meat in the freezer.  :tup:

No offense to those that hunt with guns, but archery kills are something to puff you chest out over.
