My Old Bow Is Gone

5 posts in this topic

I've had this old Mathews for almost 10 years now. It's been good to me, but was just time to move on. I'm gonna miss her frown The new DXT in my den is certainly a fine replacement smile and I'm sure it'll treat me good also.

I sold her on that "C List" thing to a high school kid in Hibbing who is very excited to have it. I'm happy for that but it still seems like an old friend has gone away.

Hopefully Taylor will shoot as many deer with it as I have and be happy with her for a long time.

The upside for me is, I may now have enough money to buy all the licenses I need for 3 states worth of hunting this fall...or maybe not, but at least it's a good start. At any rate, the new bow is all geared up and ready for all kinds of new memories. I just can't wait!

Any time you part with one it is tough. When I got out of the compound and into recurves I sold both my compounds off. One to my brother, another to a guy I worked with at the time. I "mentored" the guy from work for a couple of years and he did tag a nice little deer with it.

As much time as a guy spends with his bow, he tends to get a little attached to it. I hate selling them (I have sold a few recurves, but the rack only holds 6, so when a new one follows me home, another has to go) but you will get over it, and soon you will be "attached" to the new one.
