It's been a busy year w/ an 11 year old, new school, football, and just trying to keep busy at work. My son Jared and I were able to take a few trips and make some memories.

Started the year at Lake Eerie in April.
Can't wait to go back.
If the Bowfin (Dogfish) had been officially weighted it was a new Ohio state record by like 5 oz. Shooting an old Ben Pearson 50# recurve w/ Synergy spin real 200# ff.
 -

Some HUGE carp fun had by all!
 -

Jared shoots a compound at the moment as his recurve won't give him the power needed for most fish we shoot.
 -
 -

The busy summer caused very few other trips to the water and football gave a horrible start to my September bowhunting.

Finally started running the cams hard and became familliar w/ the movings of a nice buck Jared had named X-Man because of an X he had across his shoulded during the early summer months.

Was Lucky enough to catch up w/ X man during my annual bowhunting vacation the 1st week of November. Couldn't be more tickled w/ this deer. Not only my best deer, but I've never had so much history w/ a deer having near 500 pics of him.
Shown in Pow Wow section earlier this year.

Absolutely smoked X-Man taking his heart out at around 8 yards. I sure didn't want to shoot any lower at that angle, but I dang sure wasn't gonna rookie it and shoot high.
Black Widow MA IV 53# @ 28" Axis FMJ 500, 125 4-blade Magnus Stinger.
 -

My favorite pic...blowing this one up for the office wall.
 -

Pretty much finishing my year was a doe taken from the same stand I took my buck.
Jared took 3 does w/ a Muzzle Loader, so we've got plenty of meat for the year.
Deffinately a "Quality" over "Quantity" for the Lowebow family this year.

Great year Mike. You passed on deer for three seasons waiting for this year to come. A hard earned trophy no doubt great job.

Had one other great out of town trip bowfishig down at KY Lake, but didn't take any pics.
The Lake Eerie trip was w/ my buddy Jake up in Ohio....after the amount of fish we saw/shot up there it has become a yearly event for me. It's incredible that time of year. We shot 1 night where we picked out the 15 + lb fish and wouldn't even shoot an arrow at the smaller ones.
The camp ground we stayed at dug a hole for us to bury them. They were great!

I'm sure I left out a few great hunts n trips, but thise surely was an abnormal year for me. Normally I try to be bowfishing at least 2 times a week...we really only went around 4 all summer due to high water and rain.
Refabricating the deck of my boat next month, so God willing we'll haul it to Eerie in April.
