My first archery kill-velvet OTC solo

Recommended Posts

Heck of a shot man good job! Great buck, now you gotta chase the dragon! 

I will add this though, keeping an arrow knocked can be a very sketchy. I used to do it all the time but after too many slips and falls i feel my life is not worth the risk.  If you are in flat country thats one thing, but if not i I just run the chance of missing out on the shot.

After getting everything packed up and on my back Fri morning, I figured I’d carry a nocked arrow on the hike because it’s my luck I’d get a chance if I didn’t for sure!

30+ years ago I was sneaking up a small rise one morning south of Flagg doing that when I slipped on some wet leaves and fell forward in the blink of an eye. I had my finger tabs on the string, my left hand on the riser and the bow did a 180 just as I hit the ground. The broadhead came within 1/2 of my neck as I fell on the bow. That was the last time I ever did that.
