First Primitive harvest 7pt (lost souls)
« on: October 22, 2010, 09:20:12 pm »
I just started building bows in Dec 2009. Since I was very young I always wanted to build a bow and harvest a deer. Today my dreams were answered. The osage character bow "lost souls" was my first shooter bow. It was named after a close friend that died of cancer and the loss of my unborn child. I finished the bow on the same day these events occured....In fact i finished the bow to keep my mind off things. I choose to hunt with this bow because it was the heaviest bow I made and shot the best. (75#@27").

So there I was.............6:40 p.m.....5 yards broad side.....double lung.....no track

I am sooooooooo happy!!! Not the biggest buck I ever shot but definatly my biggest accomplishment yet.

Way to go jon! That is something that I have yet to accomplish with my homemade stuff..
When you come upon a track or trail you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.

Thank You Lowell and Kolton for the compliments. Thank You Pappy...it was a double lung shot (pass thru) just missed the top of the heart. It only ran about 50 yards and he was down. Thank You GregB...it was special to me

That deer was meant for you. The title lost souls is good, but the lost ones came home
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intentions of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body. But rather to slide in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming....WOW WHAT A RIDE!!
