I have taken 3 shots, 2 does and 1 hog, and all have been recovered within 40 yards. It has allowed me to continue to be a bowhunter, a sport I have loved for over 35 years. I still shoot my compound in my backyard range but not while hunting.

That's a great testimony there, capnbo, thanks! Has the ground blind been pretty easy to integrate? Have you found that the deer aren't spooked by it? Do you leave it in one place all the time?

Ive never killed a deer on opening day in my existence. Ive never seen a buck I would have shot on opening day of deer season in my existence. Ive killed bucks on my first time in an area or stand before, ive killed deer on my first chance to go hunting before, but I have never technically killed an opening day deer.
