    making of a bowhunter

    We grew up poor, sitting in a tree every day after school during bow season cost nothing. I literally sat on a limb of a rotten apple tree about 8' off the ground and watched a barbed wire fence. When the deer went over or under the fence, it was my window to draw on them. My trail cam was pieces of string tied across deer trails. If a string was broken, a deer used that trail. The night I killed this deer on a Halloween night I felt like a King, and ate like one. The wheels on my old PSE are barely visible, no sights, no release, coveralls about three sizes too big for me. This will always be my greatest trophy.

    Most of us started in similar fashion.
    Nice story. The first is always one of the best.

    I thought of this memory when I read the Don Jr stone sheep story. Some of us start out rough, but we all end up looking for the same thing. :-)
