    second trip - friend that is stationed in HI
    first night , second bear in, (first bear was in before i sat down in my stand) his 12 y.o. daughter arrowed her first big game animal
    perfect double lung , a little more of top of the heart bear traveled 15 paces. she drew as bear pulled head out of the barrel. had to hold the draw for a while but handled the pressure as a pro.
    Martin bow, hunderhead broadhead
    squared 5'8" skull 17"


    next evening Dad arrowed 3rd bear in, again same first bear in before we were settled in the stand . Dan's 4th bear with a bow great shot double lung missed hear but not blood vessels coming out of the top. traveled 40 yards. browning / pse bow; spitfire 3 blade broadheads wow what a hole they leave. have not squared it but will be over 6 foot skull , 17-3/4"


    I did not hunt as was not wanting to add more stress than i was to my injured knee, ( tore ACL strained MCL tore med. meniscus and probably lateral meniscus , fell off boat getting it ready about a month ago)could not have done it with my ACL knee brace.

    Smile Awesome

    Congrats!!!! I hope you get your knee repaired quickly and properly so you can get back at it yourself. I understand how an injured knee can really hinder a guys hunting abilities.
