Took first shot with bow tonight. I could only manage 1 shot at 20 yds a little shakey & some light pain but was 1" right of bull. I'm not going to push things just had to get that first one in. 10 weeks post surgery and no doubt I've got a ways to go.:yes:

joel not till I'm old and gray well till I'm old. Pt said I won't tear anything just stop when pain sets in. Ohio allows crossbows in archery season. PA requires a doctor's written statement that you send in to the Game Commision for a crossbow disability permit.

i hunt with a cross bow ,,,does that make me less of a hunter???????
Not at all, A crossbow is a great weapon especially for those with disabilities who cannot handle a traditional long or Compound bow.

The wife has final decision in all matters! :wallbash:I never judge any hunter's choise of weapons as long as its legal where they are hunting. To each his/her own in the hunting world!:smile:

That's right HM, take it very easy and be very careful. You must do exactly what the Doc and PT say. I do hope that you'll be able to get some good quality bow time in though. Delbert, as HM said, as long as it's legal to each his own in the hunting world.
