Faith has been with me for several days but rain and work have limited my time with her. Our NC turkey season begins Saturday, so I'm planning to get serious about this pretty quick.

In the meantime, I'll share some impressions about this bow, in no particular order of importance. The fit and finish are top shelf. When I was assembling the bow, the limbs fit to the riser with a very precise fit..not sloppy, not too tight. The fit and flow of the limbs and riser is very well-executed, and it gives you the impression right off the bat that you're dealing with an expertly-crafted weapon.

The riser woods and limb veneers are rich and subtle, handsome rather than pretty, classy rather than rather than showy. My photography skills are lousy and taking pictures as the sun sets bleaches them out, so I haven't come close to capturing the deep, subtle pattern of the limb veneers, like carmel, milk chocolate, dark chocolate and fudge layers .  -
 -

As a package, this bow reminds of a 1960's Diana Grade Browning over and under. The finish is matte and feels like it was rubbed into the woods.
 -

The first impression as you pick it up with your right arm is of mass. This riser is big and it's dense. I love the mid-1960's bows with the big risers, and this one has that sort of feel.  -


I am still getting to know the grip. The palm swell and thumb rest are very subtle and minimal, so you aren't forced to hold the bow in a certain way. I'm finding my best results by letting the bow find its place in my hand while I barely hold it. Suffice it to say it is solid and steady at release.
 -

The "hybrid" limbs, as described above and in the pass around thread for one of Will's bows a few months ago, are not recurve, not semi-recurve and not typical longbow when strung up, and as you draw you know they are something different. The only way I can describe it is that you sense the tension building in the limbs more like a coil spring winding up than a leaf spring bending, and as you get to full draw the sensation is that the limbs are coming alive rather than stacking . I draw 28.75" and while there is room for more, I am definitely in the sweet spot for this bow, because things happen in a hurry on release.
 -

The bow comes with one of Daniel's Hunter's Choice skinny strings with dense yarn puff silencers , and she's plenty quiet. The note on release is a bit sharper in tone than some of my bows but not louder. Shooting from 25 yards, the whir of helical fletching is more noticable than the string noise.

I tend to be a fan of "flat-shooting" bows rather than striving for 11-12 gpp and significant FOC bias, and I am shooting well and leaning toward 30" XX75 2016 arrows with 135 gr Zwickey broadheads for turkey season. The bow is set up to shoot off the fairly wide velcro pile shelf, so nock height is critical. My preference would be to remove the crimp-on brass nocking in favor of dental floss, but that makes it harder for the shooters down the line to set up the bow to their preferences.

I have searched all over and emailed Terry and can't figure out what were supposed to insure the bow for. Can anyone help me out here?

I am confident in my packaging ability, but I want to be sure it is done properly!

Opening morning of turkey season was gray and windy on top of the ridge at sunset, so Faith and I started sneaking down the south-facing slopes, with the wind at my back to cover the noise. I snuck up to withing 75 yards of a mixed group of nine turkeys including at least two nice toms, but....they were on the other side of brand new horse fence in a pasture I don't have permission to hunt. While I was contemplating a strategy, a truck drove up to the gate of the pasture and the turkeys ran out the other end, away from me. Oh well..that's hunting. We'll keep after 'em.

Funny postscript for opening day. Around noon, I was in the car with my wife headed to Raleigh, and that same group of turkeys had made their way across the pastures to the road and I passed the two toms, strutting on the edge of the road, at less than 10 feet.

That's turkey hunting for ya! They seem to like "rubbing it in". I'm watching 3 gobblers strutting, sitting on my front porch. They are showing up nearly everyday, but come season, who knows?

Good luck, stay after them! Thanks for posting!

Monday morning found that same mixed group of turkeys in the same new horse pasture on the other side of the same new wire mesh and board fence from me and Faith...they must feel like they're in a sanctuary. Once they were on that new clover and stuttin', they certainly weren't going to fly over that fence to get to me in a rush. Saturday they made their way out the low end of the pasture then back uphill along the edge of a different pasture and ended up a lot closer to where I started, but it took them 4 hours to cover that ground.

Anticipation is building. Got a PM with tracking info. Hope should be in the Black Hills Thursday!

My youngest son hasn't even gone turkey hunting yet.... says he is waiting for Hope. He is all in on this St. Judes fundraiser.

His favorite bow was bought off the St. Judes auction a few years ago.
