    Smile Early Christmas Present

    For the first time since I rolled the truck back on Oct. 12, I was able to pull the BowTech back again. Two months to recover to be able to pull 60 pounds again. No telling how long to get back up to 72 pounds.

    Feels so good to be able to pull the bow again!

    Very cool! Take it slow, there is plenty of time before you need to be out there with it at 72 lbs. I pulled a muscle in my shoulder a few years ago and it was a long time healing. Probably a year before I was back 100%

    Good to hear!

    Take it easy, don't over-do it and you'll be back to 72 lb's before you know it
