    Finally closed the book on a Deer we called 'Too Tall'. Been hunting this property for the third year this year. First year we got pictures of a nice 9 pt we named 'Too Tall' because his rack went straight up. He disappeared that first year after 2nd week of sept and we never seen him again. The next summer he showed back up and grew into a nice 10pt. He lost alot of length from the previous year. Just like the year before he disappeared middle of Sept. This summer he showed up again and he had lost even more length. I figured he was an old deer but wasn't sure how old. I was able to connect on him opening day and closed the book on Too Tall. My taxidermist estimated that he was 7.5 to 9.5 years old. He ended up scoring 128 1/8 and netting 125 1/8 (unofficially). Couldn't be more excited!

    Cool knights, I thought it was a Athens at first...How you like it? Athens, Elite and Prime are coming on strong on the Archery scene and I've heard nothing but Great things about them. And I wont ask your opinion on your sight but looks like a HHA... I'll give ya mine...BEST out there!!! lol...Congrats again man...He's a Great 1

    Absolutely love the Athens Bow and their company. My sight is actually a Sword Sight and I love it. I have owned both sword and HHA and can't say a bad thing about either of them.

    Bows
    Friend of mine has the Judgement and that Bow is as quiet as a Monday morning Church!!! A tack driver also!!! I would love to shoot the New Athens Testament but haven't yet...I did tinker with the New Bowtech Experience and it's by farrrr the Smoothest, Fastest, Bow I've ever shot and whisper Quiet but my next Bow will be a Athens or an Elite...The Prime Bows are very nice but I don't care for that Dual trac Cam they have. My Assassin is the Black Ops edition also and I trimmed it in Red for my old School Colors lol...Good Luck to ya!!
