It should be about time for Sacajawea to be headed to Swampghost. I hope you had a good time with her TP3!

On her way to Swamp Ghost in Louisiana.

I only shot at foam, but it's about time for someone to draw some blood again.

Thanks again to all those who got this started.

It arrived as I had just got in from chasing Elk in Colorado and I didn't even have a chance to open the package and check her out before heading back offshore for work. I will play with it next week when I get home and possibly take it hunting.
A little about me, born and raised here in south Louisiana. My father and grandfather hunted anything they could. No one bow hunted though and it wasn't until a family friend gave me a whitetail II compound that I got into bows. Many years and many critters later I met a gentleman from Illinois whom I swap hunted with. I hunted whitetails with him in Illinois and he chased hogs with me. He was a Trad hunter! Man could he shoot too. Thus the seed was planted, though it took me a few years to finally decide that I wanted to get good enough to hunt with one. Thousands of arrows later and a few bows I finally felt confident enough to hunt. Since then there was no turning back! I have been blessed to have met many fine folks along the way. I'm grateful to all that have helped me in this journey. Looking forward to taking Sac out hunting. The oaks are dropping on the public land in the swamp and there are deer hitting them!
Thanks and happy hunting to all......

Corey

Well it didnít take long she was putting them right in there so I put my big jim 4 arrow quiver on it and some broad heads on my arrows and off we go! Hunted some oaks dropping big green acorns on the wma near home this morning. Saw a bunch of squirrels. A friend invited me to his lease for the evening hunt. Weíre trying to get blood

I am very impressed with this bow. To take it out the box just yesterday evening and kill a deer with it this evening just shows how well it shoots! This buck came in to a red oak thatís dropping acorns. He was at 20 yards when I drew Sac and like most shots I donít remember releasing the arrow, I just remember seeing the pink fletching going through him right where I was looking. A complete pass through to boot! Really appreciate the opportunity to hunt with her.... Canít thank Mr Bob enough. I was shooting gold tip blems with some 125gr Kudu single bevel heads a friend gave me to try out. He was down within 60 yards. Hereís a few more pictures

I’m gonna tell y’all this bow just flat out shoots! I been at work for almost a week, I got to go home yesterday evening since my boat was in port for a couple days. I shot Sac a little while at my normal practice distance of 15-20 yards. Then I decided to step back to see what she could do. The next 3 shots were in secession from 22, 26 & 36 yards!

Sac and I took a ride 4 hours north to some public land. I found a cluster of persimmon trees dropping a mile in from the parking lot. Fresh rubs under them as well as lots of hog tracks! I hung my stand 20 yards down wind. About an hour later I spot a doe easing my way. She ended up getting my wind. Not long after I hear something coming from my right. Here comes a reddish blonde hog on the trail that passes right under the tree I’m in. He locked up when he hit my scent, then ran out towards the persimmon trees and stopped about 18-19 yards quartering away. I drew, anchored and released. The arrow flew great but hit about 2” left of where I needed it to go hitting him in the shoulder. Not very much penetration, he ran a little ways and stopped then trotted off not looking to hur, with my arrow still in him. I saw several more hogs but none in range. I got down at dark and took up his track. Not very much blood, never found him or my arrow. Not Sacajawea’s fault, she did her part

Sorry for the bum luck on the shot... but heck of a job driving 4 hours and picking a perfect spot.

Good deal, Corey! I was wondering the results of your travels! What reserve did you end up hunting?

I haven't found a single persimmon tree producing.. not sure what the deal is, but It's been pretty surprising..
