      Well, after 2 years of shooting this recurve i finally felt confident enough to take hunting this season and it paid off for me Saturday afternoon. Had 3 does slip in and i took the biggest of the 3 and i tell you…after the long hard work I’ve put in for the switch to traditional, i couldnt be more proud and honored for this deer. A ten point with a rifle couldn’t even come close to the pride I felt with traditional equipment even on a doe, which is really why I quit rifle hunting 4 years ago. It almost feels like when you were a kid and killed your first deer, and i’m loving the high. Hopefully this the first of many to come. I am officially a traditional bowhunter, and i aint turning back. Thanks for the ear!

      msarcher — you describe the feeling perfectly. And the best part is that with traditional it never goes away! The more of ourselves we put into anything, the greater the rewards. Big congrats. dave

      Yep, No such thing as “Just a Doe” when you take them with Trad equipment. That is one beautiful shiny doe.
