Wow! I can’t believe it! I was honored to win first place in the video contest hosted by Become1 in Montana in September. It was a wonderful week of hunting antelope and whitetail with my son, James. It was also the Hunt/Film/Compete Event hosted by Film the Hunt at Powder River Outfitters. The first place prize was a brand new beautiful Prime Centergy Bow!
My previous bow was many years old but still effective and accurate. I was still shooting aluminum arrows, which just made James laugh and shake his head. He claims that when I shoot at any longer distance, the arrow coming into the target is like a descending howitzer!
Right after I received the new Prime bow, I purchased some accessories needed to prepare the bow for use. These arrived yesterday.
I took the new bow to Archery Addictions to get it all set up. Tom was incredibly helpful and a really great guy to talk with about archery, hunting, and even ice fishing. He helped me select an appropriate 5-pin sight and other accessories to complete the setup.
I had some idea in mind about the arrows I wanted based mostly on a recommendation from my son, who is a dedicated archery hunter. He knows a lot and depends on exhaustive research and practical use of products. Tom confirmed the recommendation strongly when I said I wanted to use the Easton Axis arrows. We completed the transaction and I went out the door with my new bow fully equipped and even in a very nice protective case made by Tenzing.
I am now waiting for the arrow inserts to dry and will finish sighting in the bow later today. To say I am excited about this new Prime Bow is the understatement of the day!
