He's really enjoying the crossbow. He switched to the crossbow 2 or 3 years ago. Dads 72 now, still at it hard. He don't get there as quick but he gets there. I knew he was out this morning, I make sure he calls when he's in the stand and gets out. He calls me at 6 this am to say he's in. Then calls me at 7:30, says " hey I hit one, got a bloody arrow". I was a good 1 1/2hr away working, normally I'm closer. He found him within 50 yards. My cousin could get there sooner than me to drag for him. He called me again awhile later, and said he was dragging him out slowly. Dad hasn't drug a deer for a few years cause we always do. He would drag for 30 yards and sit. He said " I'm just enjoying the woods with my deer". He did that for 2hrs. Then help showed up. He's a tough old bird. My best friend.
