Donny Ashford, KY

In the hunting season of 2006-07 I had been hunting all season with no luck. I had gone every day that year and just couldn't make it happen. On January 2nd of 07, my father passed away. At that time I was having a really rough time coping with the reality of him being gone. On January 8th, I went out in the woods to get away from everyone, to have time alone to think. All evening I had heard movement in the thicket behind me. As my light started to fade, I heard a noise to my right, I looked over and I saw him walking towards me. I stood up and got my bow ready as he came within shooting range. I drew on him at 20 yards, but could not get him to stop before he walked behind some limbs. At 37 yards I finally had a clean shot. I shot, and heard the arrow hit, he took off but I never heard him crash. Being my first buck with a bow, I did not want to push anything, so I gave him about three hours to expire. When I went out to start tracking I found him lying 40yards from where I had shot him. It was one of the best feelings in the world. I love my Hoyt, and will never shoot anything else. Thank you guys for the great bow.
