I feel your pain brother, but at least you saw them and had the opportunity. the wind was a big factor for me last year. this year I will use a fixed broad head for close & 30 yards and above I will use a grim reaper thinner arrow and at least 9 GPI. .. but your time is due, your getting better at it . even still I get buck fever & Adrenalin rush. and congrats to the team. that venison will be tasty...:)

Looks tasty. Just curious, is your son posing with your bow, or is he hunting? My 11 year old can hunt next year, and has asked about getting a bow. Wondering what to start him with, that doesn't cost a grand...... ;)

Off topic but I see a couple people talking about buying their kids bows. If you have never done it you should check for eye dominance. I've gone trap shooting recently with a couple adults that are new to shooting and couldn't believe how bad they were. They were both cross dominant and saw immediate improval with the gun on the other shoulder.

I am left eye dominant and shoot right handed (started as a lefty).....The 1st time I shot a bow my instructor at Willow Creek asked me what target I was shooting at....I told him the one in the middle.....I was hitting the one 6" to the left....I did not realize I was closing my right eye.....I really have to concentrate while bow hunting to close my left eye.
