So what started as simply one hunting story I had to tell you guys has become my Traditional Journey. I have decided to try and put all my beloved hunting stories on this thread as I'm fortunate enough to have them. They as I am not perfect but I honestly hope you enjoy the Journey [Smile]

THE HURRICANE SANDY BUCK 29 October 2012

So i have a story to tell. it's a tale of my best traditional buck, shot during my second year hunting with a longbow... my first year committed to traditional only. The training wheels were home locked in a case without the warmth of sunlight on them in almost a year. Simply because it's what i enjoy reading I'm going to paint you the best picture i can of this one day during my 2012 season. You may not know me well so I'll admit that like my father i truly enjoy telling a good tall hunting tale but this one i will honestly leave as it happened that day. Take that for what its worth to you because i was standing there as the north wind of Hurricane Sandy swept through the goldenrod field and honestly... i still cant believe everything that happened!

The season gave him perfect mornings, hunter's moons and fields of freedom found only by walking them with a predator's stride.

Lol yes Magnus... 2012 [Smile] I'm going to take the time to give you some back ground so its easier for you to walk along with me on my hunt. I have many interests and most all are outside. It took no time at all for the bow and arrow to become king of my pursuits by age 16 or so. Every fall I would beg barrow and steal all the time from every other part of my life to chase deer around the woods. For the past 17 years or so I've been fortunate to work my 40 hrs in three days and then still get six or so weeks of vacation. So in short, i mostly take off archery season and live in the woods at camp. My traditional journey with archery started with a boys trip to our hunting camp in Cuba NY Aug 12, 2011. My brother Dan, Jeremy and I had gathered to do some camp chores before hunting season witch is never really a hard sell since... well its at camp! We mowed lawn, sighted in guns, stacked and moved wood, shot our compounds a few times and drank some beer beside a fire every night. On day two Dan says " hey I've got something for you to shoot" and heads for the truck. I look at Jeremy and he only offers a shrug. Well Big Dan comes back holding the longest looking longbow and 6 goldtip traditional carbon arrows. We just started laughing! Where in the hell did u get that??? All three of my brothers, sister and father all shot but never did i even once see a traditional bow. Dan said he bought it online with the arrows for like $225 two years before that and never shot it! We jumped up and headed over to the bag in the woods. We didn't have a tab or glove or arm guard so i rummaged through the cabin and found an old stiff, hard glove my dad used years ago and even a stretched out no longer elastic arm guard. we shot and shot and laughed and hit every tree, rock, root but hardly the bag. It was honestly amazing how bad we were and Jeremy was the worst! We offered him no exception or excuses for his terrible shooting even though he was left handed and the bow right handed. About the best way i can explain it is somehow the compound had become a little like a tool in the tool box. i still loved shooting it but that darn longbow was like starting all over again... I can still hear the laughter when one of us bounced an arrow off a tree.
