About a year and a half ago I gave up the wheel bow. Since then I have been exclusively shooting longbows. I've learned a yon from guys on here, archery rendezvous and bowyers willing to share their knowledge. Tonight it all went as planned and I got my first deer with a stickbow. I just wanted to day thank you to everyone that had given me advice throughout the journey.

Good job Mitch. You get to watch a lot more........because it has to be just right when you go to traditional equipment.

Killing distance shortens up and angle of shot is critical. But when they all line up, and you hit your anchor point and let the string slip from your fingers and watch that arrow hit right where you were looking.........well, you know the feeling now.

Congratulations and Good Shooting->->->->Craig

Nice congrats some times it just takes more time to get the 1rst. One needs to bare down and learn as they go. Nice shot and good animal. Sharks do the job but you placed the shot.

Yup, that's my dad. He was thrilled. He can't shoot as much as he used to from an injury. He's enjoyed watching the journey of all the prep and practice as well. It was a good night with family and friends.

Mitch, Congrats fellow Michigander! You're title scared me. I thought maybe you went into town looking for something to eat and the town Sherrif kicked you to the curb.

Mitch, How about the specs on your Super D......and your take on it. I have been thinking on that one real hard.

Great shot!

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

specs are 48 pounds at 30.5 inches shooting a 600 grain arrow. I love the grip on the bow. it is small, but provides for consistent hand placement. The craftsmanship is beautiful. I've shot the bow with and without a bow quiver. it is very stable either way. Super smooth as well

Thank you buddy. I have had Dan's Whip. Lynx, and am shooting his Pika right now.

That Super D looks like a very sleek weapon. Thanks again.
