No dout some of us are just blessed...

    Letting them pass

    I forgot to add. I killed a 148 last yr. Would have made the 150 mark but had his tenth point mashed in velvet. I hunted him prolly 25 times before i killed him. An several of those encounters was less then 50 yards. The problem was he was always the last to come out and there would be eyes on...

    I have seen this happen in the field a few times. One of the times i will never forget. A big busted rack 10 i was after before he broke his tines up bad. Had a doe bedded down in a tall bean field. She would bed down and then almost crawl away slowly and when she thought she had gotten far...

    You could be right. But who knows what drove them to that idea. I will say i couldnt feel any real vibration in any of there last several bows. My vxr is very crisp etc. The only real problem i have with it is the bow needs tuning and doesnt seem as consistant as older models. But then again it...
