Default Very proud dad!!!

My 11 y/o son Brooks has been shooting a recurve and compound for 4-years, this year I felt like he was pulling enough with his compound to hunt a small pig. Long story short, he has far exceeded that this year. Of course yall know which one means the most but I thought Id share the others too, hes had a banner year!!!!

Bear Kodiak Cub Recurve 30lbs @ 24, hes drawing 22 with 26 GT Lightning 30lb youth arrows with a 2 blade 125grn Magnus Stingers up front.

He made a 12 yard broadside shot on this 80lb boar and smoked him!! Arrow penetrated 2/3 of the way, tracked him 40 yards DRT. 10 mins later a 30lb shoat came in and he double lunged him with a pass thru! Somehow in all the craziness of the hunt we forgot to take a picture with it!




He also shot his first deer/buck with his Compound. The same trip he stalked a pig on his own with his compound and made a
perfect 15 yard shot. This trip, he hunted by himself in a tripod and made a great 16yds shot on a 6pt. He shot the hog with his recurve last night and tonight he shot a another pig by himself with his compound at 13 yrds with a 30yrd recovery!! Like I said the kid is having an unbelievable year!! He has zero interest in hunting with his rifle, Ive created a bow hunting monster!!!

Bear Apprentice-2 40lbs @ 23 with GT-35/55 with 100grn Simmons Landshark

Hes a killing machine! While hes done a great job, Id like to commend you for getting him into it. He will remember these times forever. Lost my Dad in 2017 and am so thankful for all the things he taught me. Your son will be too. Congratulations to both of you.
