Default He’s back at it...

Even though I shot my best buck to date 2 days ago, watching this unfold was a 100 times better!!

So here’s my 11 y/o boy Brooks, he got his first recurve bow kill last year on a nice pig. Since that moment, he’s become obsessed with Traditional archery, literally won’t pick up his compound! This morning he continued to fuel that fire with his first deer harvest with his recurve and I couldn’t be more proud!!

Bear Kodiak Cub, he’s pulling 26lb at his draw length, GT lightning arrows with 125grn magnus non-vented stingers. Double lunged him with an entrance and exit @ 9 yrds!! 75 yrd recovery!! Unbelievable moment for both us!! I know y’all understand how special this was for him!!!

(I’ll share the entire story once we get home from the ranch)

Congratulations to your son, that is an accomplishment he will never forget ! That’s cool. And to think, there are those that say we need 600 gr. Arrows with 20+% foc. Out of 60-70 pound compounds. Way to prove them wrong. Congrats again !
