    If nothing else I could get to the woods in the dark and get some serious nap time without having to listen to the wife snoring. LOL. Some years back I used to pack in about 5 miles and hunt turkeys till 11:00. Then I'd break down the O/U (24" barrel), put it in my backpack and get out the collapsible fishing rod and waders and fish for trout the rest of the day on my way back to the truck. That far in I hardly ever saw another person all day. Usually saw deer in the morning and turkeys while fishing. LOL.

    Thanks Barry. Actually I was shooting a 45# Mamba, yes, from a blind which makes it so you can draw with them so close (7-10 yds). I had really good penetration, had one arrow blow through the bird and go another 20 yds; also did well after hitting bone on a couple shots. The arrows are CX Maxima Hunters cut to 30" and with 50 grain brass inserts, topped off with 150 grain Snuffer broadheads; total weight around 450 grains.

    I think 35# should be plenty, give it a shot; like you said even just to get out of the house.

    Nice job Capt.!!!
    Custer park is definitely cool.
    NY to Nebraska via South Dakota is for sure the scenic route.

    And Barry - Yes you should get out and go.!!
    I got a Tom a couple years ago with my old 40# DH recurve at 20yds the arrow went right thru.
    A 2213 with 125 head.

    This was a very nice thread for sure. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. A trip like this is definitely on my bucket list. The scenery shots were wonderful.

    Not so sure I'd be sounding the horn driving through the tunnel that has the "Falling Rocks" sign before the "Sound Horn" sign! Great scenery! Bucket list recurve hunt for me is the American Bison! Very tough draw tag!

    Lots of scenery, some parts reminded me of the Adirondacks where I live in NY:
