If you shoot easton axis arrows an have bought some new ones lately read this recall on certain batch numbers
On saturday morning nov 24th 2012 i was sitting in my box stand rifle hunting with my newly aquired winchester model 70 in 270 an as the sun rose i saw the usual two 6 month old fawns grazing in the field. while sitting there wishing i hadn't sold my bow before my new mathews chill got here i was day dreaming an thinking about mom cooking breakfast when about 7:30am I look up an see a new face entering the field i look through the scope an see it the 5 point that i knew i wanted gone so i put the crosshairs on him a squeeze the trigger an he drops in his tracks i was tickled i looked back through the scope to make sure he was down for the count and as i raised my head from my rifle i look back up the hill and see another buck coming down the exact same way so I put my head back down an seen it was a six point an without thinking i put the crosshairs on him an boom he drops in his tracks. By this time i am shaking from all the excitment so i sat there a few minutes before attempting to get outta the stand to go check them out. At first i thought i made a mistake on taking the six but after some thought on how similar the two bucks were i figured it might be a good thing an decided just to enjoy the fact that i got to take two bucks in less than a minute of each other. Later on that day i decided i was going to do a skull mount on both bucks just to rememder the day cause its not everyday that you can shoot two back to back. I was curious to find out the age of both deer and pulled there lower jaw bone off an sent a pic to a buddy of mine that ages deer. both jaw bones were the same an both turned out to be 2.5 year old bucks. now that i have my buck tags filled(and freezer too) i can now relax an take out some does an give my family some meat as a gift. i thank god for allowing me to have such an amazing morning hunt and hope everybody else has had the same.
After seeing GT's post about his bow it reminded me that i haven't shared my new toy. After buying a hoyt turbo vector in February and spending months shooting i finally came to the conclusion that the bow just didn't fit me so i put it on archery talk for trade and luckily the first offer was the bow i wanted to trade for. This is a 2012 prime shift an all i can say about this bow is WOW. this thing fits me to a tee. i have a 28' draw an shoot a 390 grain arrow so when i ran this through the chronograph an found i was shooting 285 fps i was amazed that not only was it smoking fast but it is the most accurate bow i have owned. For the rest i went with the 2012 trophy taker extreme fc. the sight is a Montana black gold single pin ascent. When i said accurate i meant it i can hit a 1/2' dot at 25 yards and learned real fast that i don't shoot more than one arrow at a dot unless i feel like buying more lol. It feels good to have a bow that i am confident in shooting so now if i can get them smart mountain whitetails to stop coming into the field on the opposite side that I'm hunting then just maybe i can break this bow in right an put some meat in the freezer.
