Default Recurve axis down.

It has been a tough season so far with the bumper acorn crop. My trusty longbow broke the week before bow season which added to the frustration. Finally had one make a mistake. The Sarrels recurve did its job. What a rush!

I use 165gr. Simmons Landsharks. They fly well and leave a hole like a Rage.

Hasnít sold yet. Had a couple contracts fall thru. We have not hunted that ranch at all. The axis came off a friends place 5 minutes from the house here in Boerne. We are covered up in them around here.
