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.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
