I know! I flinched a bit writing that check. I don't have a lot of self control with hunting and it carries over to watching him shoot stuff. I told his mother that I only shot one animal, it wasn't my fault!!!!! She didn't get the hint. I'll make more money, no worries.

Doc, you deserve a lot for showing this young man the joys of hunting. My hat is off to you and I truly hope you, Jr and the future Mrs Doc get to enjoy many, many more memories together. Thanks for posting this life hunt thread. Tell Jr. congrats from his newly found TBH family.

We had a blast! He has talked about hunting most of the day and night. He spent about an hour asking me animals to look up that would be cool to shoot. We looked at all kinds of stuff. I figure I have a few years to get him hooked before the major pull of sports and females takes over. He gets a big dose of snowboarding/wake boarding from the "other" side. I want him to see my side. Hunting and fishing taught me a ton of good values and kept me out of trouble. Hopefully I can return the favor.

I'm sure he can then switch over to stories about his mom the plastic surgeon and his stepdad the obgyn. That should keep things lively for a while!

My buddy Derek brought the refrigerated trailer from Woodbury. I already had some meat spoken for from the buffalo and possibly the yak. Derek is coming to my wedding in 3 weeks and will bring some then. I'll make a run down sometime in late march or early April. I'm going to donate some. Whatever is left will get shipped. I may buy another freezer. It's a process.

No school today and I only had two surgeries. Cauy had a friend come over and that boy has never fished. Limited options up here in the tundra so we walked over to the playa lake in the park across from my house. May only catch a dirty diaper but it's fishing! Reminds me of all the places I made my dad go when I was a kid.

Some stuff will go to lil doc's new office. Some to the house and some to juniors room. I'm hoping for a big trophy room or barn one day. I hate the panhandle wind and would love some sort of an indoor range.

Doc, Did you ever get to shoot your halon? I own one myself and love it, was actually on a hog hunt in Seymour 2 weeks ago and was shooting a target at 200 yards and that bow was getting there so easy I was surprised!!

I shot it out to 70 yards yesterday. Was really impressed out to 60 yards. Think I got tired at 70 and the wind was blowing 15-20. I'm gonna like it but struggling to find daylight hours without hurricane force winds to get some practice in. It does hold really well and seems forgiving on bad shots compared to my hoyts.

I first had the creed and it just didn't fit me but the halon is a sweet bow. I actually shot a pig this season at 62 yards and it was dead on and quick. Hope you like it!

I think I will like it. It is almost 10 fps faster than my defiant(9 I think) and maybe smoother draw. I do think it is forgiving and holds nice. I think I will always like Hoyt's but I'm not dedicated to one brand. That's why I never became a staff or pro shooter even when I was part owner of an archery shop. I could never commit to just one brand. I think Mathews has hit a Homerun with the halon and I haven't been overwhelmed by them in a while!

I have been open to brands as well but the last 2 years bowtech has done it for me. This year was tough between the pse evolve 31 and reign 7. I went with reign 7 because it was dead at the shot. I could feel a vibration at the shot on the pse. But both bows are awesome. Haven't shot a halon 32 but did shoot a halon last year and I thought draw cycle was great until the end of it. They had a noticeable hump at the end. All great bows though.
