Thanks everybody!  It means a lot to be able to share this experience with people who get it.

I've read about the kyudo masters in Japan; they say that concentration is so intense that the spot becomes the entire universe.  Then it is impossible for the arrow to miss, because there is nowhere else for it to go.  I always thought that was admirable if a little hokey, but I never experienced it until Sunday morning.

I've had the meat aging in a cooler for a week; I'll cut it up tomorrow.  Going to save the sinew for future use (I don't know how to use sinew yet--time to learn) and the hide will be going to the tannery an hour up the road for use in a new quiver, and maybe some new mocassins for the Badgerling.

It was a spot-and-stalk with a couple of funny twists to it.  I'm writing it up (mostly so I can remember it--stinks gettin' old) and I'll try to get the whole story up today.
