What a crazy few weeks for bow season I’ve had. Probably the most emotional roller coaster I’ve ever been on this year after just getting back into the swing of things after having a baby last year. I’d put in many extra hours glassing, patterning, and hiring babysitters to watch the wee little ones and FINALLY it payed off! I saw this buck 2 times on my camera before season and thought I had him patterned only to be winded the very first day causing all the deer to change everything! I went straight to town and got that all sorted out with just about every scent eliminating product they had. The next day I went out I saw nothing. The day after that my bow rest came loose and I couldn’t shoot as I drew back on my buck! MAN I was about ready to give up!
I gave it a rest for a few days and then kept going back in only to be disappointed. I thought I’d give it another try and with 20 minutes of shooting light left my buck came in at 35 yards… I shoot! My blood was pumping so fast, I was shaking, I couldn’t believe what just happened. I asked myself if I was dreaming. It killed me to wait but I waited until 10 minutes after dark and went to find my arrow. Perfect blood! It only takes 5 minutes of tracking and I found him 100 yards from where I shot! I wore my Prois Ultra Hoodie with pride every day and loved how it wicked away sweat as I walked to my stand. On the cold evenings I wore my pullover and it worked perfectly! I LOVE how fitted the arms are so I don’t have to worry about it snagging when shoot. Thank you Prois soo much for making such a great line of camouflage, I will never go into the woods without it!
