yeah Oregon's archery opened the 26th I believe.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

@carpsniperg2  Did you put a band aid on the wound for her?
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Not my bull...was in close proximity chasing after him and a few other bulls helping my buddy with his western wa general archery. Unfortunately my buddy didn't seal the deal but a youngster under 18 did with his dad right there wit him. Got to watch this beast take his last few breaths while the father and son cheered and hugged next to him it was a great day
