Well I have had my Tall Tines for a couple of weeks and have shot every night since TJ helped my get my arrows tuned right. Most of the practice has been at 7 yards in my garage and main focused on form, but I have got to shoot outside in the mornings before work at about 15 yards, and felt comfortable at that distance if a shot presented itself. Saturday I climbed in the tree late since I hit the snooze one to many times. 10 minutes after settling in I see a doe appear in the thicket 30 yards away heading my way, then she just turns and goes back down the hill. I thought oh well maybe next time. I turn to my left to see a buck comeing through the thicket heading toward her. Its a 10pt I had already passed on with my compound earlier in the year but with a new trad bow in hand I shot him for sure. He stopped broad side at 15 yds and tempted me for minutes. The only problem was I only have 1 anterless tag left. Oh well he should be a stud next year if he makes it the next 3 weekends of gun season. He is the buck on the left.
