This harvest is definitely the highlight of my trad experience. Although I've had a couple of other harvests, this one seemed to be the most complete as far as confidence before I loosed the arrow.
After a 5 year hiatus, I decided to pick up my Horne Brushbow and hunt the late season for Blacktail. I actually missed this guy opening weekend and realized I wasn't picking a spot due to a case of buck fever. Video is a great tool for analyzing your actions and allowing you to know what to correct.
The piece of wood on my bow quiver is a home brew attachment for my string tracker.
When he came in this time, I talked myself through the shot. I used a clicker to help my form and consistency, which appears to be working out quite well. This harvest reinvigorated my interest and confidence in traditional archery and I plan to hunt deer in my home state with trad gear only.
