I had my midlife crisis when I turned 20. But now that I'm 41, I just bought a colorado elk hunt for this coming august. I haven't shot a bow in 20 years, as my wife so aptly (YOU BOUGHT A WHAT??? YOU DON'T SHOOT A BOW! I'VE NEVER SEEN YOU SHOOT YOUR BOW) pointed out. No problem...I bought a new bow. My old aluminum arrows won't work on these new fancy bows, so now I have new carbon fiber arrows. 6 of them. But I'm sure I'll need more. And I needed new broadheads. A case - so I could fly the bow to Colorado. And I'll have to pass my Alaska proficiency test so I can apply for all the cool bowhunts up here.
Jeff, I hear 'ya. My wife had been after me to throw away my old archery target in the garage the whole time we've been married. "I've never seen you shoot a bow..."....yadda, what you wrote above. But I got the itch again.
The hard part is explaining why composite arrows cost $400 a dozen...so far, I've chickened out on that one. All trapguns cost $350? Well, carbon/aluminum arrows are $5 apiece. Then, you have to explain why the archery pro shop sells metal detectors, for people to find lost arrows with..."Why would anybody pay that much for a metal detector if arrows are relatively cheap?".....Um.....Uhhhhhh.....
My wife thought mine came in at 50 when I came home with a ragged '66 Mustang convertibe --- After getting it "presentable" , she loved twilight drives to the beach and other romantic spots and said that was "one hell of a good crisis".
