I wont lie i said you are crazy more than once for only taking your bow.  :chuckle:
But good on you for sticking to it and making it happen the way you want! Awesome story and looking forward to the vid.
You are not alone. I heard that from a lot of people. Heck, there was a time or two I questioned it myself. Im glad I was able to get it done with the bow.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Super happy for you, dude.

Ive known Rainier10 for a few years now, and if Ive learned one thing about him, its that he sticks to what he says hes going to do. From the day he won the raffle tag to the day he started hunting he said he would stick with the bow. I was a little shocked when 2 bulls turned up that he said would give one chance at with the bow and if that didnt work, hed bust out the rifle. Well never figure out if he really would have taken the rifle to them, but I still would have been surprised if he actually did. At least not until October when the rut is over.
Congrats again.  Glad you found the path.

" 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
