2016 Backcountry Hunt. Tagged a nice little three point Bull. Taken with a 60# yew wood bow of my own making and a surewood shaft tipped with a Zwickey Eskimo. A trophy to me.

Awesome!!!!! It does not get any better than killing something with a bow that you created, whether it be a squirrel or a 6x6 bull elk. Your elk falls right into a true trophy!
Congrats!

Thanks Charles, I got it fixed. Hope 2017 is a similar outcome. [Smile]
