    I am sure I will always remeber this hunt. Just thinking about the stalk and how it played out brings an adrenaline rush everytime. This was one of my most memorable hunts but I seem to say that just about every year after every hunt. However, I hope I do not have to give up hunting or fishing for that matter, anytime soon.

I never realized I was experiencing so much hand shock until I shot this bow.

    That Fury looks to be in beautiful condition for being so old. Has it always had a rest or have you ever shot off of the shelf. I recently made an arrow rest for my Hi-Speed and my shot patern has become much better.
    Yes, its always had a rest on it, and when it was in the woods, it always had limb socks on, and always held in loving hands. The bow looks like that from tip to tip, almost like it was never shot, but shes had at least 20 strings on her, yeah, I DID baby that bow! Still shots like she did the first evening I picked her up.
