Been hitting the gym every chance I can and shooting the bow out to 110 yards. You just never know if itís enough. But, I have been there before and know what to expect. The rifle feels good. Have shot it out to 500 yards. That sheep target was a group from 98 yards. Hopefully I get a shot at half that distance. I know itís going to be tough and success rates definitely are not 100%.

Thatís a dam solid group for almost 100 yards! I bet there are plenty ďbowhuntersĒ who canít do that at 50 yards
How do you like that Levitate compared to your Hoyt or Mathews bows?

Canít wait to follow this adventure. Best of luck Doc!

The levitate is different. Itís super light and moves around on target a bit. The draw cycle is a bit harsh but very doable. But for some reason I reach for it first every time I shoot. It will be great for the mountains. Groups and shoots every bit as well as my heavier bows. I have also been shooting an rx-7 ultra. Itís a sweet shooter and a big baby. I just love the pse. It truly feels powerful.
