Default Finally happened! Ethan's 1st with a compound!

He's finally done it! Time to wean him off the xbow for good (maybe?).

Sows hung up so we watched these for about 10 min. They were being summoned by momma so I gave him the green light.
I got video but once again, it sucks, lol.


15 yd shot with his 17.5" draw, 28# Bear Cruzer Lite. Magnus 85gr BH.

He saw her crash. Great 60 yard blood trail.

Long time coming but now he's there!

He's pretty excited about it to say the least!

Then the crappy video. In slow mo you can see the arrow hit. I wasn't sure which white one and followed the wrong piglet, lol.

He considered seeing if Team Rib
would smoke it whole at Bownanza!

The 4 1/4rs are going in the crock pot with taters tomorrow (he likes smothered pork).
