    thanks Old school

    Thanks Mike, the kids called back, and all were really excited and shooting a lot. They said best gift ever. I guess I won out over all the video games. LoL. Now, it seems the whole family, youngest daughter, son-inlaws, nephew, in and outlaws and now their friends, all want bows. I guess Santa will be busy. LOL
    But its all good, I'm happy they are all getting into Traditional Archery.
